Are you a Mom who Rolls? We want you to join the family. Send us your story and some pictures of you in your Gi, training, competing, playing with your kids etc… We will add you to our Moms Who Roll Page.
The goal of this page is to encourage other moms and families to learn about Jiu Jitsu! The purpose of these questions is to help guide you in your submission. Please feel free to answer as many or as little questions as you want, as well as share other information that you think is relevant. If you cannot answer one of the questions, just skip it and move on! (I promise, it’s not a test and no grade we’ll be assigned! ) We just want to share your story and inspire other Moms to get on the mat!
