Is Jiu Jitsu just for men?

There is a perception in the community that Jiu Jitsu is just for young athletic men.  What would you tell women and parents that were  thinking about participating in training?  I would say that is absolutely incorrect, Jiu Jitsu is for everybody, it does not discriminate, it absolutely for everybody.  Jiu Jitsu is what you make of it.  If you are an 85 year old grandparent, it is for you just at a different pace and level.  If you are a 7 year old girl, Jiu Jitsu is for you.  If you are a 35 year old guy who hasn’t done anything in the past 20 years and you are out of shape, it is for you, we just tailor it to fit your needs.
