For a fighter, winning and losing is everything. For the women of "The Girl Fight Gym" in Toms River, New Jersey, winning means more than having your arm raised after a match. Prairie Rugilo recognized that fact and opened her all-female Muay Thai kickboxing gym in 2009, and since then has been inspiring and empowering women through the martial arts. Along with her training partner, Jaime, Prairie coaches a fight team of people that may not have ever stepped into the ring unless they were at this gym. One of those students, DeAna, plans on making her amateur debut, while Prairie prepares for a shot at a championship belt that she once held and believes she was robbed of in a controversial fight. Prairie and DeAna must overcome their personal demons through the support of their teammates and loved ones to become the champions they want to be, embarking on a journey that takes them down roads they did not expect to go through. With the backdrop of the recovering Jersey Shore in the wake... Written by Matthew Kaplowitz

Great documentary for martial artists/REAL documentary fans
26 August 2020 | by micahbboswell27See all my reviews

So many "realty" films are staged now. This film seems REAL. Real struggles. Real conversations. REAL triumphs. Please watch this film with an open mind...it's excellent.
