Following other Jiu Jitsu practitioners on Instagram is a great way to fill your feed with motivating and inspiring Jiu Jitsu content. Here are ten women you should be following if you’re not already:
Elaine Wynn (@JiuJitsu_Grandma)
Known on Instagram as “Jiu Jitsu Grandma”, Elaine Wynn started training Jiu Jitsu at the age of 69 and received her purple belt in 2023 at age 74. Her inspiring Instagram posts will put a smile on your face and serve as an important reminder to not compare yourself to anyone else. Your journey is your own, and it’s never too late to chase your dreams.
Rose Miller (@rosieRollz)
Rose Miller trains at Atos Jiu Jitsu Headquarters in San Diego, California. She regularly posts short videos of highly relatable Jiu Jitsu tips. I frequently find myself watching one of her videos and thinking, “I need to try that!”
Rear Naked Chicks
When I first discovered this page, I spent at least an hour watching their funny and super relatable reels. You’ll definitely be sharing posts from this page with your gym buddies!
Not only is Jiu Jitsu world champion Kendall Reusing is active on her personal Instagram page, she also hosts the Get a Grip podcast that focuses on mental health, mindset, and other topics related to Jiu Jitsu. Any Jiu Jitsu nerd will enjoy listening as Kendall shares her thoughts and interviews other Jiu Jitsu celebrities.
New Wave athlete Helena Crevar is a fierce competitor who at just 15 years old was already giving world champions some fierce competition. Not only is she fun to watch compete, it’s also fun to see what she’ll be wearing at her competitions as she has been known for some really fun and creative no-gi outfits!
The Jiu Jitsu Mom (@thejiujitsumom)
This page focuses specifically on community and support for moms who do Jiu Jitsu, including training during and after pregnancy, managing family life while training, and more.
Winning three consecutive world titles and earning her black belt while still a teenager, Shelby is especially an inspiration to young BJJ athletes. She shares competition and training tips as well as coaching advice on her Instagram page.
Atos black belt Heather Morgan’s page is another good one to follow for a constant flow of useful training tips to help keep your wheels turning even when you’re off the mat.
World champion Ffion Davies is fun to watch compete, and her upbeat personality makes her easy to root for. I recently had the opportunity to attend a seminar she led and can confirm she is just as delightful in person.
