Women's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Gainesville

Enjoy Women-Centered Training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!

Mat Life launched its Women’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program in 2019 to bridge the gap in representation of women in the sport. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu coach Carly Dodd found that a much larger percentage of women would train in BJJ classes if given the opportunity to train with other women and under women-led instruction. Given her own history of assault and struggles with training in a coed environment as a beginner, she decided to build a platform for more women to train in the Gainesville area.

While most of our women students also train in our coed classes, Mat Life’s Women’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program offers a unique opportunity for:

  • Female students to have training partners of a comparable size and strength
  • Beginner-friendly environment that removes barriers to begin
  • Instruction by women for women that focuses on tactics that work for female bodies
  • Really great training playlists (if we do say so ourselves)

Mat Life is proud of its investment in women martial artists and continues to foster a supportive community where all students can train in a positive environment for mutual benefit.
