About Us

Who are we?

Ladies Only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an organisation specifically created for jiu jitsu ladies all over the world. Our goals are to connect jiu jitsu women, and to enhance the female jiu jitsu scene. We do this by organising women-only events, and we also serve as an online resource with news, interviews, blogs, photos, videos and more!

Our mission

Since being a woman in jiu jitsu can be lonely at times, Ladies Only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu means to connect us. On the mat and online, we want to enforce the female presence in the jiu jitsu scene.
