Australian Girls in Gi (AGIG) was created in 2010 by black belt, Jess Fraser.
AGIG aims to foster, develop and increase the involvement of women within the sport and martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. AGIG works to increase female participation at both club and competition level, with a focus on retention of students within their current team.
By creating opportunities and events for female athletes, AGIG works continually toward equal representation of genders both on (participation) and off (management/administration/leadership) off the mats.
To create, inspire, empower and support equality within the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Australian Girls in Gi strives for equal opportunity for all athletes in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Currently AGIG’s focus is on female athletes until such time as equal representation is met at all levels of our sport (including but not limited to): federation boards, referees, gym owners, events managers, athletes, leaders, coaches, students, professional athletes, non professional athletes, children and adults. The goal of this organisation is equal representation of both males and females in all clubs and affiliations internationally, starting with Australia.
