Self Defense

In the last Saturday class of the month girls learn our girls self defense curriculum including lessons on bully-proofing, street smarts, and defending attack scenarios

It's not about teaching girls to fight,
but to be so confident, capable, and aware
that they never have to.

Building Strong, Confident Victors from the Inside Out

Training Pillars

GWF students become:

Mixed Martial Arts Training


Change Her Self-Image, Change Her Life.

We strive to be the #1 best investment that parents can make in their children.


Aside from powerful martial arts skills and enhanced personal safety, we guarantee that every girl in our program gains priceless character attributes that will guide her faithfully for the rest of her life— the ones you don't get from school. Every year invested into GWF training results in 10+ years of positive life outcomes from increased confidence, courage, discipline, focus, patience, self-respect, assertiveness, mental, physical, and emotional strength, and an unshakable belief in her ability to overcome and succeed.

These virtues are discussed regularly in our training. Our special pink stripe is awarded to girls who demonstrate exceptional 'Black Belt Behaviour': Courage, Discipline, Respectfulness, Focus, and Positive Attitude.

"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."

-Trish B.

"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"


-Emily G.

 "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."

-Dirk B.

"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."
-Katherine H.
"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."
-Jason R.B.

Physical Self Defense Skills

"My daughter loved the GWF class. Beforehand she was very nervous, but immediately felt comfortable and had a wonderful experience. Gemma is a very gifted instructor and leader! I was so impressed with how she put everyone at ease, as well as her ability to inspire and motivate. I look forward to all the great things my daughter will learn in the weeks ahead. Thank you so much for the warm welcome!"
-Emily L.
"Fantastic program! My daughter is empowered and excited to have some fighting skills and she's keen to go on to the next level. Girls need to carry themselves confidently and be aware of their surroundings, and Gemma does a fantastic job of balancing street smart education with fun, energizing martial arts. It's so great to have this program that's tailored to girls and women."
