Who is Gigi Good?
Gigi Good is a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jujitsu, Pro Jujitsu Fighter, Combat Veteran, Fitness Trainer, writer, and mother. Some might say she is a Wonder Woman, I say she is a Warrior Woman.
In her six years of service in the US Army, she was a combat/flight medic where she served in two combat tours in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Six-month deployment to Afghanistan and a 15-month deployment to Iraq. Gigi was a MEDCOMM Soldier of the Year and took 2nd place overall in the Army Soldier of the Year competition.
After her military service, Gigi had one daughter and went on to get a creative writing degree where she wrote about her experiences in the Army. One of her stories was published in an anthology of stories, all written by veterans. She
won the Metropolitan State University’s ‘Writes of Spring’ competition with other pieces inspired by the war.
Another passion of hers is fitness and nutrition. This is where she met her current coach. He, along with her college writing professor, introduced Gigi to Martial Arts. She says her journey with martial arts changed her more than anything she has ever done. Even though she never went pro in MMA, it definitely changed her outlook on life. It took tremendous effort to overcome her low confidence, personal insecurities, and shy demeanor. Most people who know Gigi now would not recognize her before her fighting days.
Gigi currently competes in professional Brazilian Jujitsu and has a record of 3-1.
