WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THESE EVENTS?
Women of all ages, backgrounds, and fitness levels are welcome!
Experience in martial arts is not needed, as these sessions are geared towards beginners and cover the fundamentals. We want you to realize how strong you really are! The #JoinOurFight events are for women, by women and 100% for free.
WHY ARE THE EVENTS ONLY FOR WOMEN?
From our experience, women-only spaces can be an entry point into martial arts for women who might not otherwise consider trying. Intimidation, fear of injury, or other personal reasons may hold women back. Our goal is to make martial arts training more accessible to these women by creating safe spaces for them to train and try out their power, without fear or judgement, and see where the journey takes them.
It's important to note that we could not do this without the support of the men in our network. Gym owners, coaches, teammates, and sponsors of all genders have supported us in making this campaign possible!
HOW WAS #JoinOurFight CREATED?
We first launched the #JoinOurFight campaign on International Women's Day 2022. Together with the German martial arts scene, we organized nearly 30 free martial arts events for women and girls.
Through this nationwide martial arts movement, we reached hundreds of women in one evening, and motivated them to take a step towards martial arts and self-defense. The incredible feedback and high demand made it clear: #JoinOurFight should not be a one-time thing, but a campaign that expands across borders in the future.
