Female JIU-JITSU athletes are praised by Riley Gaines for their refusal to compete against men.

An exclusive article about female martial artists who declined to compete in a jiu-jitsu event after men began to dominate the women’s division was published by Reduxx on Friday. The North American Grappling Association (NAGA) changed its rules less than a day after the story was published due to the strong outcry caused by the news.The embargo was successful. Only women are allowed to compete in female events at matches sanctioned by NAGA going forward.

Riley Gaines talked about the huge win for women’s athletics with Charly Arnolt on OutKick the Morning Monday.
It’s enormous. Gaines stated, “That is what we have needed to see.” “We needed to witness girls [fight] back, and the results are evident when they do.”

It took 21 hours — just 21 hours — for NAGA to change their policies and protect women’s sports, prioritize fairness over inclusion.”
Gaines praised both Reduxx and the Independent Council on Women’s Sports (ICONS) for bringing attention to the issue.“Let’s be real: I don’t think a lot of people would know about this had someone not drawn attention to it because it’s jiu-jitsu,” Riley said. “It’s not a probably a high revenue, sport or anything like that. So a lot of people wouldn’t have known about this.”.
