Happy International Women’s Day 2017!

As is our tradition, we’re celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day with a fun photo shoot. Our theme for 2017 was femininity, and we wanted to show that machismo isn’t the only path to strength, and that ruffles, sparkles, makeup, giggles, and other traditionally “girly” things have just as much of a place in the martial arena as the trappings of masculinity. What better way to do that than with a group of students of all genders, mixing it up with sword, knife, and grappling, and dressed in fabulous skirts?

We got some pretty stellar shots out of the process, and some great candid moments as everyone got in touch with the swooshy, bouncy, glorious freedom of moving in ruffles.

And behind the scenes…
