Where on earth are other female grapplers…

Here’s a map composed by Slideyfoot, of some of the female grapplers, their blog titles, and where they train. It’s constantly being updated, just comment here and he’ll add you or i’ll email him your information. This wonderful map was compiled in the case you’d like to travel for the chance to train with other experienced females as well as female-friendly places. Everyone’s so friendly, you gotta love it πŸ™‚ .

    Cool – I’ll subscribe to this post so I can see any comments. πŸ™‚

    Of course, that map isn’t just female grapplers: it’s got me on it, for a start. I can be relatively effeminate, but I’m still a guy (just about). ;p

    I could perhaps change the colour/shape of the placemarkers, to reflect the gender? Although I wouldn’t want to insist that everybody who wants to be on the map tells me their gender, as some might not want to. Though in that case, I could have a third option for ‘gender not disclosed’. Hmm. Something to think about.

    Dallas is not mentioned 😦
    LOTS of ladies grappling each other here and having open mats. Come and check us out. (and yes we blog a little bit about it too) http://www.poweredbyshe.com

    Does that mean you want to be on it, Triin? If you let me know (either here, or email me) which site (poweredbyshe?), name (I assume Triin?) and the academy address, I can stick you on there. Or you could always tell one of the other people with admin access to the map, like Leslie from BJJ Grrl. πŸ™‚

  6. Slidey! I need to be on that map! What up??? πŸ˜‰

  7. slideyfoot says:

    No problem, Julia: just drop me an email at the link I posted earlier with name, your website, club address and club website (and in your case, maybe a CouchSurfing link too?). Assuming I haven’t got you on there already: can’t check maps properly on my phone. πŸ˜‰
