Fight clubs for women officially opened in Saudi Arabia three years ago, although earlier they were considered unacceptable in the country.
In recent years, more and more Saudi women have been striving to play sports and learn to protect themselves.
Since the beginning of 2018, women in Saudi Arabia have been able to attend sports events in Riyadh, Ad Dammam and Jeddah.
In September 2017, the kingdom's authorities lifted the ban on women driving cars.
