About Black Girl, White Gi

Getting started on any journey can be a bit scary. First day in a new job, first time in a new place. For me, stepping on to a jiu-jitsu mat as the only black woman, was the scariest and most unlikely thing I saw myself doing.  But it was one of the most important steps towards my overall health and wellness.  


Black Girl, White Gi is dedicated to helping you shake off some of those nerves when stepping into a jiu-jitsu gym, dance class, or octagon and translating that confidence into your every day life. Any questions you might have, any opinions you need to share, and any stories about 'being', BGWG is dedicated to your healthy body, healthy mind, and the journey towards your best life.
