What better way to continue to spread your Valentine’s Day love, but with a Girls in Gis event? Thanks to Brazos Valley MMA in College Station, several girls were able to do just that on February 15. With a total of forty-three women and girls in tote, including some from Louisiana, the girls were able to make this event a success.
There were several sets of mothers and daughters, and even a few that didn’t do BJJ “yet.” The participants, ranging all the way up to 48, started the event with warming up, followed by learning a half-guard reversal taught by Marlana and Chloe. There was also a great flow drill that combined three transitions that fit just like a puzzle.
Finishing up a great day, the girls competed in physical challenge with awesome prizes care of Girls in Gis and BVMMA. Overall, the event was able to raise almost $200 for Restore Her (www.restoreher.org), and the girls walked away with more than just an awesome goodie bag from BVMMA, but with great memories.
