ROBYN TAYLOR

ROBYN TAYLOR

SPECIALIST INSTRUCTOR WOMEN EMPOWERED

With over 20 years training in a range of Martial Arts, it was only when she started Gracie Jiu Jitsu in 2011 she realised that until then she would not have been able to successfully defend herself against a much larger and stronger attacker. Knowing how important it is for women to learn Gracie Jiu Jitsu for self defence, she became passionate about encouraging more women to train. Through years of assisting with classes she worked towards her Women Empowered® Instructor Certification and proudly launched the program in South Africa in 2017.
