We have always seeked out for female martial artists who are looking to progress in their martial arts journey. It is not an easy path to succeed, especially for women, as it can be that extra bit harder to get on the big promotions and sponsorship is a way of making it that little bit easier.

Welsh stunner and Pain Pit ring girl Kristie Raby has come onboard the Sidekick train. Kristie originally was a customer of ours after she purchased our ladies MMA grappling shorts. After following up with our customer service it was clear to see she was passionate about MMA, especially Jiu-jitsu, so we wanted to be a part of her journey. She has established herself as one of the top competitive cheerleaders in the UK with 11 years of service and now is ready to compete in Jiu-jitsu.

Kristie Raby met Conor McGregor

Kristie has now joined up with one of the top Kickboxing apparel companies in Europe to represent the brands female fight wear.

It’s an obvious choice for Kristie who describes herself as bubbly, motivated and with a lot of drive.

She also told us

“I’m always looking to try new things and challenge myself mentally and physically. I’m a former professional cheerleader so I fell naturally into BJJ and I absolutely love the physicality of the sport.

Female Fighters like Rousey inspire me. She is such a role model to other women who are or want to be involved in the sport. My coaches and team mates also inspire me. They keep me motivated when training gets tough and the sense of community and family between us is something money can’t buy.

It feels great to represent a brand like Sidekick, especially when the brand has good quality training products like it does. I’m looking forward to wearing and promoting their fighting products at the next few BJJ competitions I have coming up this year.”

Welcome to the Sidekick family Kristie!
