"This program has quite literally changed my life"

"This program has quite literally changed my life! I started Girls Who Fight as part of my healing journey and it has helped me grow in many areas of my life. Since I started I have gained more self-confidence, feel more empowered to use my voice, learned new martial arts techniques, and provided a physical hobby that has helped me lose 20 lbs! The Girls Who Fight program is an incredible experience for women looking to learn different self-defense skills in an uplifting learning environment. Gemma is such an inspiring instructor who cares about the growth of her students and has a wealth of expertise in the world of self-defense/mixed martial arts. The coaches give you in-the-moment feedback to help you improve and also the other women in the class all care about helping each other grow. I could go on, but this is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that I highly recommend!"

The Science Behind Self Defense Training

Women's self‐defense training is the only sexual violence prevention strategy with solid evidence of effectiveness at reducing rates of victimization.

A study of three Canadian universities found that women who completed a self defense course were nearly half as likely

to report being raped during the 1‐year follow‐up period than the control group. Unwanted sexual contact

and attempted rape were also significantly lower for women who completed the training.

A study of 522 high school girls in Kenya found that girls who received self defense training were 63% less likely to have experienced a sexual assault 1 year later than girls at schools who did not.

An analysis of the National Crime Victimization Survey data found that taking “self‐protective action” reduced the likelihood of completed rape by 87%. Physical self‐defense was especially effective, resulting in an 81% decrease in the likelihood of completed rape.
