What Parents Say

"Gemma takes the time to connect with the girls. Her program and the connection she and the other coaches have with the girls has inspired my daughter to try hard, push herself harder and accomplish more than she ever expected. I can not recommend Girls Who Fight enough."
"My daughter loves Girls Who Fight - the coaches care about the girls and expect them to rise to the occasion with humour and inspiring leadership to support them. They work hard, develop confidence, and have a lot of joy doing it together. We've really loved our experience with GWF"
"GWF is one of a kind. It surpassed our expectations of what we we were initially looking for: a self defence course for our daughter. Instead, GWF is about empowering young women to stand up for themselves, be confident and push themselves to achieve their full potential through martial arts. I am always impressed with the quality of instructors and kindness shown to all students. It is such a supportive environment."
"The instructors are encouraging, supporting and knowledgeable. It's a welcoming space, even for less athletically inclined girls. My daughter has loved it from day one, and I have seen her confidence and poise soar. She has learned a lot over this past year and is always excited to share her knowledge. I would absolutely recommend this for any girl or young woman."
"If it was possible to give a better than perfect rating to Girls Who Fight, we would. Our 12 year old daughter has a keen interest in martial arts, but there is no place she is more enthusiastic or passionate about than Girls Who Fight, and no member of this community she adores as much as Gemma. She provides excellent training, stimulates personal growth, develops trust and confidence, and has helped make our daughter in to the amazing young woman she is today. We're forever grateful."
