The Our Kids review of Girls Who Fight

our take

The name risks sounding a bit aggressive, but Girls Who Fight (GWF) isn’t about aggression, but confidence, fitness, and situational awareness. In that, there’s a lot to love, and the increased sense of resiliency prime among the program’s benefits. Per the leadership, “We teach girls how to use their voices and body language to present themselves confidently.” That of course bleeds over into all areas of a girl’s life, including academics and social awareness. Classes are taught by experts who demonstrate and exemplify those values. As with so many camps, experiencing a different environment, one that contrasts with what girls typically experience in the day-to-day, can itself be transformational. The GWF gym is top-notch, well appointed, and supports the lessons learned within it. Girls learn strength, and power, and positive interaction.

Director's Message

Gemma Sheehan, Miss
Pan Am Champion, #1 Ranked female MMA fighter in Ontario

Hello Parents!

My name is Gemma, and I am extremely passionate about teaching kids how to defend themselves. I have been training and competing in the sport of MMA for 10 years, and feel very strongly that every girl should graduate high school with the basic knowledge of how to defend themselves using real, effective techniques. I find that I connect with young girls far more than the average coach because I am a female, and I am young (22 years old). Young girls identify with me and tend to look up to me, which I value very much. This makes it easy to connect and get through to the girls and women I work with, and helps inspire them to stay focused and to practice hard.  I like to remain a role model and mentor to the girls I work with, not only for fighting, but for other ares in their lives where I can help show them that they can become and achieve anything that they want if they keep believing in themselves and working hard. The influence I have on the lives of the girls I work with is my greatest investment in the future generation. 

I look forward to working with new girls and boys in 2018, and welcome any questions or concerns you may have about the camp!

Thank you!

Gemma

Gemma is extremely talented when it comes to martial arts, but has the ability to make these technical skills accessible to anyone. Learning from a skilled instructor is key, however finding someone who also has natural leadership and teaching abilities is a huge plus. Highly recommend!
