We are friendly and experienced athletes, coaches, competitors, martial artists and educators. We want you to come train with us! The seeds for Grappling Getaways truly began around 2016 in Upstate New York. April, Val and Julie; all purple belts in BJJ at the time, began to get together to train and prepare for world-class competitions. After all, other females at their skill level were few and far between.
Women are, after all, not as well-represented in the sport of BJJ as they ought to be. Many of us are the only women in our academies or one of a small handful. Those semi-improvised training weekend retreats began to have a broader vision and to maximize the impact of the camps on as many women in the most effective way possible, we’ve since expanded away from hotel group packages and Cheesecake Factory reservations.
We now run fun and exciting camps all over the world. Grappling Getaways are for everyone!
Our coaches and instructors come from everywhere: mainly local from NY, CT and NJ but also from Seattle WA, Mexico or Europe.
We are building networks all over the world to offer you the best experience and benefit.
In 2019, we expanded our brand to include everybody when we launched the Grappling Kids Getaways Summer Camp, where we accepted children of all genders.
We offer camps for every stage of your BJJ journey - please contact us if you are unsure about what to expect.
Generally we have competition camps, weekend retreats and international exploration camps.
We started small and local. Our main Getaway and home base are the Adirondacks in NY. 2020 we went international to the Bahamas.
It was a huge success and we can't wait for future camps and locations.
We want to represent our sport and especially women in Jiu Jitsu. It is our goal for women to be valued professors, competitors and training partners.
We love to explore! New Jiu Jitsu techniques, new people and new places. That's what our camps are about, WE GO FAR.
Wanna go far, girl? - We got you!
Stay tuned, we have plenty of plans for 2020 and will publish them soon!
