Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has exploded. Women and girls are frequently counted among the competitors in both local and major tournaments. We are poised to see an increase in the level of depth across divisions young girls mature into serious jiu jitsu players who will compete on the world stage. There will come a time when ADCC will have major players in each division and will award the same prize money to the women champions as they do to the men. I may have missed the boat at fifty. I came to jiu jitsu after a long period of practicing Kuk sool won. Brazilian jiu jitsu is an entirely different game and complements my existing skill set. Brazilian jiu jitsu like any other complex skill requires years of study to be come proficient. One always remains a student of the game. Nonetheless early instruction, ala Bia Mesquita, helps to develop proprioceptive learning wherein the body can perform a skill with very little thought as to the steps required making a complex set of movements seem deceptively simple in execution. The whole point is to start them early both in instruction and competition. Find academies that take a genuine interest in developing and nurturing young talent. Look for tomorrow’s champions to burst on the scene and to add depth to the current women’s division.
