Sweaty Betties are more than ever committed to use Jiu-jitsu as a tool for social change. To make greater impact, in 2019 we will continue to offer our existing programs as well as launching two new and exciting projects: free self-defense workshops for underserved girls and women of color and a film project called “Made by HerStory”, a mini film documentaries celebrating women in Jiu-jitsu”.

ABOUT SWEATY BETTIES
Sweaty Betties was founded in 2008 by a small group of martial arts women who were united by their passion, shared beliefs, values and aspirations.The original members began as white belts. But through persistence, sweat and hard work those white belts are now purple, brown and black belts! Now we are students, competitors, teachers, coaches, mentors, gym owners and leaders in our community.
"While so many parts of our cultures teach women that they are valued for how they look, Jiu-Jitsu teaches women to value what their bodies can do." Those words encapsulate their core beliefs which guided them ten years ago and continue to guide them now. The Sweaty Betties have organized numerous events, workshops and classes throughout the US and beyond with the goal of educating, sharing self-defense and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and creating strong and positive communities, particularly among girls and women.
For over a decade, the Sweaty Betties has helped girls and women reach their potential, find their personal power and discovered what their bodies are capable using the martial arts and self-defense platform. They’ve instructed many self-defense workshops to girls and women, including marginalized communities such as the African American and the Muslim communities. In addition, they offer weekly free women’s Jiu-jitsu classes as well as volunteered their time teaching Jiu-jitsu to kids at a non-profit gym in Oakland, CA.
