Our Mission

Formed in November 2016, She Fights has been offering boxing classes, and now Jiu Jitsu classes, free of charge, with the mission to give girls the opportunity to feel strong, powerful, relentless, and unstoppable, and provide for them a safe environment in which they could match that strength with vulnerability.

Our Programs

We have built partnerships with some of the finest gyms offering a space to practice combat sports. These partnerships have allowed us to offer free boxing and Jiu Jitsu classes to the students enrolled in She Fights. 

 

Boxing

Our bread and butter. The sport that started it all. Boxing allows our students to let out their aggression and stress in a safe and controlled environment. 
 

Mentorship

We wanted to provide our students with the opportunity to practice their chosen combat sport outside of our classes, allowing them to improve at a faster rate. Through our mentorship program, our students are matched with a female fighter who they meet with twice a month to practice their moves.

Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu is a game of strategies, where the objective is to get your opponent to submit. While fun, Jiu Jitsu also provides our students with the training necessary in real-life self defense situations.

"I like boxing. I like the thrill. I feel like we’re connected. At a regular class, everyone is just following instructions. Here, we’re like a family.”

If you self-identify as a woman, and have at least one year of experience in your combat sport, there's a student that could use your coaching!
