Uniting and empowering a diverse community of women and girls in the martial arts

We welcome all women and girls including individuals who are transgender, non-binary or self-identify as female. We aim to make our training spaces as accessible and inclusive as possible for our diverse community. Please contact us if you are wondering if this is a good program for you or your youth. 

2021 Camp Registration is Open!

Summer is here and we hope you have been enjoying the longer days and extended hours for your practice. With camp just 2 short months away, the PAWMA Board wanted to share some NEW updates and shifts to our Resilience in Motion camp! 

First we want to start by thanking you and our entire membership for being so flexible as we have continued to try to adapt to the changing landscape as it relates to the pandemic and the health and safety of our membership. Our goal is to offer the same opportunities for community-building and training that we all love about PAWMA camp, while also responding to the wide-range of appetites and interests of our community. With that in mind, here are a few updates to our 2021 camp:

  • This year we will be offering a tightened schedule, with camp running Saturday August 28th, 2021 through Sunday August 29th, 2021, wrapping up midday. 
  • Saturday will be offered entirely online. The schedule includes an opening ceremony in the morning, followed by classes, an annual meeting over lunch, afternoon classes, a brown bag dinner and continued conversation about anti-racism work, and then a social hour in the late evening. 
  • Sunday will include both online and in-person options. The day starts with classes online in the morning, followed by regional, outdoor, in-person classes midday that adhere to the health and safety regulations outlined by that area. These will take place where we have bigger concentrations of our membership -- stay tuned for updates! 
  • Registration is open! We are once again offering a sliding scale and flat rate school registration. Click HERE to register.

We realize that some of our members are regularly training in person, and others are still not comfortable or able to yet. We have designed a schedule that allows us to give the most access to as many members as possible. We hope you can join us!

Black Lives Matter Conversation

Our nation is engaging in conversations that need to be had about how Black Americans face disproportionate violence at the hands of police, a disproportionate rate of incarceration, and systematic racism that prevents access to resources. Below are listed ways that you can help with or without donating money.

This list is sourced from submissions from our PAWMA community and compiled by our newsletter editor. It is, of course, incomplete—we invite you to continue the conversation by sharing resources and reactions in your training communities and in our racial justice programming at this year’s camp!



  • The Bail Project: National revolving fund that battles mass incarceration
  • Black Lives Matter: International organization with a mission to “eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”
    Three women founded #BlackLivesMatter in 2013 as a response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer.
