Things BJJ Girls Need To STOP Doing

Things BJJ Girls Need To STOP Doing

Wrestling, BJJ and MMA are combat sports that were developed by men and initially for men to prepare for battle or in a sports setting, for competition.

If you look at the Gracie family in Brazil, most of the women in their family had very little grappling training and were even not encouraged to train by the men in the family. Kyra Gracie was the only female member of the Gracie family to reach the rank of black belt and she eventually became a respected world champion.

Of course, these sports have evolved and nowadays men and women train together and in harmony, usually. There are also some problems when men and women train in such close quarters like grappling sports…

While Bjj is traditionally dominated by men, women are making their mark with skill and dedication. However, there are some habits that female practitioners should avoid to ensure safety, comfort, and respect on the mats. Here are four things BJJ, wrestling, and MMA girls need to stop doing:

1. Wearing Low-Cut Tops

Wearing low-cut tops or singlets can lead to unintended wardrobe malfunctions. The main issue isn’t about distraction or appearance but practicality. During intense scrambles and rolls, clothing can get pulled, tugged, and caught. This can lead to awkward moments where a top shifts, exposing more than intended. To avoid this, it’s recommended to wear high-neck rash guards or even double up on sports bras for extra security. Ensuring that your gear stays in place will allow you to focus more on your technique and less on readjusting your outfit.

2. Keeping Piercings In

Piercings, whether on the ears, nose, belly, or elsewhere, pose a significant risk during grappling sessions. They can easily get caught on clothing or skin, leading to painful tears or cuts. Moreover, if a piercing falls out, it becomes a potential hazard for others on the mat. It’s best to remove all piercings before training to avoid any accidents. This applies to both women and men, as the risk of injury is the same for everyone.

3. Wearing Makeup

While it might be tempting to look your best at all times, wearing makeup during training is impractical. Makeup tends to smudge, leading to “panda eyes” and stained equipment. Additionally, foundation and other products can transfer onto your training partners’ gis and rash guards, which can be difficult to clean and sometimes even stain permanently. If you have to come to training directly from work, consider using makeup remover wipes to clean your face before stepping on the mat.

4. Using Strong Perfumes or Colognes

While smelling good is appreciated, overpowering perfumes and colognes can be a nuisance in close-contact sports. The intense scents can be overwhelming and even nauseating when you’re in close quarters, trying to catch your breath. A light spray is sufficient to maintain personal hygiene without overpowering your training partners. It’s crucial to strike a balance between smelling pleasant and not overwhelming others with strong fragrances.

5. Bjj girls on OnlyFans

It’s important to keep a clear distinction between your OnlyFans persona and your BJJ practice. Training sessions should focus on learning, improving skills, and respecting your training partners. Avoid wearing revealing or branded attire that might distract from the seriousness of the sport. Stick to appropriate, functional gear that keeps the focus on training. This separation helps maintain a professional and respectful environment in the dojo.

By avoiding these habits, female practitioners can ensure a safer and more comfortable training environment for themselves and their partners. Combat sports are about respect, discipline, and focus. By paying attention to these details, you can help maintain the integrity of the training space and ensure that everyone has a positive experience on the mats.
