We're Back

Updated: Jul 22, 2022

After a long time of being distracted with internet stuff and watching others post awesome content, I have decided to upgrade/move my Tumblr blog to a Wix blog.

What is Black Girl, White Gi?

Fitness is something for everyone and it's something I think everyone can incorporate daily. I think sometimes black women have trouble getting started or it takes a life threatening situations for us to really make a move in becoming healthier. Martial Arts, specifically jiu-jitsu thrusted me into my passion for fitness. Yes, it looks rough. Yes, you can get hurt. But, it's one of the ways I've gotten to humble myself, be fitter, and make friends of all shapes, sizes, and colors! This also came along with being a Zumba instructor and personal trainer.

With my blog, I hope that I can inspire everyone, especially black women, to realize that fitness and martial arts is for everyone. It doesn't matter if you're overweight. It doesn't matter if you're not good at it at first. Yes, sometimes your hair gets messed up! Yes, you'll sweat out your edges. But in the long term, your body will thank you!

Come visit my new blog for a mix of my bjj journey, life and travel across the world, fitness lifestyle, tips, events and other lifestyle things!
