Girls in Gis brings women and girls together from Martial Arts schools throughout Texas for once a month event. All Girls in Gis training sessions are 100% free and open to women and girls of all ages and skill levels. Each Girls in Gis events are hosted at a different Martial Art school in various cities across Texas.
