Women come in all sizes, just like men come in all sizes. Women and men of all sizes train jiu-jitsu. Being a small man in BJJ is awesome. 311 more words
I didn't get to write a blurb on this but will make it short. All women deal with body issues but the most disheartening one is when someone's efforts are discredited because of the way she looks. It upsets me when I read the comments about Gabi Garcia from both men and women. She is successful in her sport because of the years of training she put in for it, not because she uses all her strength to beat ladies much smaller than her and this is usually in the open division. It also discredits the women she is put up against saying that they couldn't beat her because she is smaller. There are plenty of times when the reverse happens and we are all praising the efforts of the little one. In the past few months Gabi has done a lot and changed her appearance looking incredibly fit and lean. This is not to say that she has done so because of all the negative comments - I mean what are you meant to do when people call you a man and are apparently on steroids?! I'll tell you what you do.. you say fuck you haters I'm awesome at what you do and I'm going to keep being awesome!
