“Marin MMA has one of the most supportive, consistent group of women who train. Martial Arts is dominated by men, but contains crucial skills for women to know. I NEVER felt unsafe or disrespected at Marin MMA; instead always empowered and supported.”
– Erin Breslin, Jiu-Jitsu Purple Belt

One of the unique qualities which sets Marin MMA apart from other schools is the strong community of women who train together on a regular basis. MarinMMA is the most powerful place in the San Francisco Bay Area for women to train.
