Total Body MMA Women Only MMA Gym

I have a vision of an All-Female MMA training facility where women of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels can come together in a fun and safe learning environment to learn martial arts. There is a strong need for a women only gym here in San Antonio.  Some women find it intimidating to even start training at times in male dominated schools.  Women are naturally weaker than males but they still strive to be as good as or better than their male counterparts. Many times we are overshadowed by the men’s size, strength and power. Women have to use more technical ability, speed, and agility to surpass the men. 

Having an all women school will give them the chance to train with other women of the same size and rank in the company of other women. We have a community of women that are waiting for this type of environment catered to females.

We have the ideas and the coaching staff, but we need funding for mats, sparring gear, gis, and conditioning equipment. There are also legal fees, rent, and insurance, pretty much everything you would need to start up a business.

Aside from cash donations we also need students and sponsors, which will be an ongoing thing. We will be teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Sambo, Self Defense, and MMA Conditioning.

Check out our website  if you have any questions.
