Rainha Fightwear is a family run business producing fightwear and lifestyle apparel made specifically for women in combat sports, martial arts and fitness. Our Gis, rashguards and spats are cut specifically to fit women, and designed in a range of styles to suit all ages, sizes and tastes.
In the future we will also look at developing ranges for girls under 16, creating more age specific designs involving imaginative, colourful illustrations and designs.
We really want to get involved in supporting the increase in participation of ladies in BJJ, combat sports, martial arts, and health and fitness in general, so please get in touch if you think we may be able to help.
who are we
Josie is a creative, enthusiastic and driven student and mother! She's a white belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and after her first competition in December (2015 BJJ 247 Southern Open) she's got the bug and can't wait to compete more.
Jon is a beard cultivating, beef eating, graphic designing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue belt wearing, combatives enthusiast extraordinaire.
Marlee may only be at 'big school', but insists that she's the boss! She loves drawing, writing, puzzles, dinosaurs, ketchup, outerspace, skateboarding, dressing as hulk princess, beef, bacon, boxing and BJJ.
Effie is our newest member. She's in charge of pooping, crying, sleep grunting, eating and looking cute.
More and more women are hitting the gym, and training and competing in martial arts and combat sports like Brazillian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Through the power of social media, a community of female fighters is growing, helping each other and increasing interest, with the number of women competing rapidly increasing nationwide.
This is really important to us due to the effect the BJJ community has had on us personally. For the last 8 years Josie has struggled through a condition called Fibromyalgia, which is basically chronic full body pain and fatigue. Thanks to BJJ, the lovely people she trains with at Phoenix BJJ, social media and some random bearded chap she has been surrounded by nothing but support and positivity! Although she suffers with the pain and can't train as often, or for as long, as she would like, the continuous encouragement and support has not only done wonders for her health but also for her confidence inside and outside of training.
This support and encouragement isn't something we have just witnessed at our gym. More and more people, no matter their personal challenges, are competing around the country. They're not held back, their heart and passion are encouraged and positively embraced. The BJJ community is exactly that, a community, a lifestyle, supporting people no matter what challenges they face and we think this is amazing, breeding positivity, hardwork and dedication.
