Jiu jitsu fighter?

Can’t people who train Jiu Jitsu simply call themselves ‘practitioners’? Or students perhaps?

As non-competitive women with full time jobs (me with three full time jobs), children and endless house chores, myself and the girls in our ladies BJJ class find it a little bit awkward and pompous to call ourselves ‘Jiu Jitsu fighters’ when all we do is just train three to four times a week for fitness’ sake and stress relief.

Then again, I think we should spend less time thinking about what to refer to ourselves as and more time drilling.
