about AGIGBy Jess Fraser
Australian Girls in Gi aims to continue to increase the number of Australian females participating in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at both club and competition levels. In the 3 years since AGIG’s inception we have had great success in achieving this goal.
AGIG directly & positively effects female student retention at clubs throughout Australia. We do this through the development, maintenance and sharing of a supportive wide access ‘all inclusive’ community.
This increase in female student retention was highlighted at the recent 2012 Pan Pacific Championships where AGIG played a key role in the increase female entries. This increase was a whopping 300% (up on average from 30 around entries to an amazing 100+).
Almost all females in attendance were active Australian Girls In Gi members.
Australian Girls In Gi not only creates world class female only events such as camps, competitions, workshops and seminars but continues to generate interest and support daily through updates and information sharing on social networking sites. Here the women are all able to share their views & contribute to this highly successful community.
AGIG women not only have access to training support they also have a strong social group which makes them feel they truly belong.
