Who wants to take a picture after a long, sweaty work out? Jiu-jitsu women do! No make-up? No Photoshop? No problem! These ladies have a cool, messy hair, don’t care attitude, and they are definitely comfortable in front of the camera. The cheerful pictures are a great contrast to glossy, overworked magazine images that girls, and women are seeing every day. The women seem to be having a genuinely good time, and the photos make you wish you were there.
Back in 2011 SoCal women started the trend of taking group pictures where everyone was trying to choke the person next to them. Now most seminars, and open mats end with a friendly group choke or some other creative shot.
Here are some of our favorite pictures from women’s jiu-jitsu events. We hope you like them!
