January 1, Female Jiu-Jitsu Athlete Triumphs Over Transgender Opponent’s Hidden Identity



Female Jiu-Jitsu athlete Ansleigh Wilk recently shared her experience of competing against a transgender athlete who did not disclose their biological sex beforehand.

In a video posted on Sunday, Wilk described the match that took place in July at the Submission Challenge tournament in Marietta, Georgia.

Wilk, a purple belt at the time, signed up for the tournament and was surprised to find out that she would be competing against a biological male.

She described feeling the athlete’s strength as soon as they clinched up, saying, “They felt so strong. I was like, oh my god, this is a very strong old lady.”

Despite the initial panic, Wilk managed to pull guard and eventually took the top position, securing a victory with an Ezekiel Choke. The two competitors were set to face each other again in a best two out of three bracket. In the second match, Wilk adjusted her strategy and won with a Paper Cutter Choke.

However, controversy arose when the referee stopped the match, claiming to have seen a tap from the transgender athlete. Wilk was ultimately named the winner of the bracket.

Wilk emphasized that her intention in sharing her experience was not to boast about defeating a transgender opponent but to give a voice to other female athletes who have felt scared in their matches.

She expressed disbelief at the notion that such situations are deemed acceptable.

The transgender athlete in question is 41-year-old blue belt Cordelia Gregory, who has achieved eight competition wins.

At the same tournament, Gregory also competed in the no gi blue belt female absolute bracket but did not emerge victorious. Wilk referenced two other female athletes, Jayden Alexander and Adella Carver, who had faced Gregory and expressed similar concerns.

This incident adds to a growing trend of female Jiu-Jitsu athletes withdrawing from competitions due to the presence of biological males in the female division.

Alexander shared her disappointment, stating, “For a man to be able to come in and sign up in the women’s bracket and discourage us from even being able to compete at all is absolutely heartbreaking and honestly scary.”

Wilk echoed Alexander’s sentiments, noting that many women are afraid to speak out on this issue for fear of being labeled as bigots or transphobic.

She warned that if this trend continues, women’s sports will cease to exist as medals, belts, records, and opportunities will be taken away from female athletes.

Why It Matters

The case of Ansleigh Wilk competing against a transgender athlete without prior disclosure raises important concerns about fairness in women’s sports.

It is not about denying transgender individuals their right to participate in sports but rather ensuring a level playing field for female athletes.

Wilk’s experience highlights the physical advantages that biological males often possess, which can significantly impact the outcome of competitions.

Women’s sports were created to provide equal opportunities and recognition for female athletes. Allowing biological males to compete in women’s divisions undermines the purpose of these divisions and discourages female athletes from participating.

It is not only a matter of physical differences but also the potential for psychological intimidation that can arise from facing opponents with inherent advantages.

By speaking out, Wilk and other female athletes are shedding light on a growing trend that threatens the existence of women’s sports. It is crucial to address these concerns without fear of being labeled as bigots or transphobic.

If this trend continues unchecked, it will erode the integrity of women’s sports and deny female athletes the recognition and opportunities they deserve.

    Too bad one of the women (biological females) didn’t win by an “unintentional” kick to its groin before choking it out.

    What is most despicable is the EASE with which those in positions of determining regulations for sports agencies, teams, orgs., etc….have so swiftly caved into the pressure and demands of the WOKE proponents. Are men in positions of “power” in women’s leagues? Who ultimately made the determination that these men, (regardless what they call themselves) – be allowed on women’s teams??? Were the women athletes on the teams consulted? Maybe – like fraternities – actually sororities, the determinators of policies…get to pick and choose those who pass requirements in order to be accepted!!!

    Any person who refers to a man in the female context only justifies the trans community’s insanity of claiming that they are what they are not. You want to have “trans” sports, then set up a transgender arena. Don’t be surprised if the turnout is low and you lose money, though.
