Ladies Only Class at Grappling Mastery a Success!

The Ladies Only Class at Grappling Mastery is a success.  The Womens class has been years in the making.  Ever since I helped run the Gracie Barra in Orlando, I saw a need for a women’s only class.  Most Women don’t want to train with the guys, or so I thought.  The group today proved me wrong by staying after and joining in with the guys for an MMA Conditioning routine!
