Women are supposed to look pretty, not get their faces punched in OR Women don’t belong in a gym OR Get back in the kitchen
Utter objectification. If we are talking about equality in the 21st century, what better way than women taking up their own responsibility of fitness and safety? Why be a commodity that needs a man around to protect her? Besides exercising the right way can only make you look younger and prettier.
I know people are squeamish about girls getting hit in the face. It’s understandable but it’s not very rational ~ Ronda Rousey in an interview
Women can never be as strong as men
Women should only dance
Martial Arts is a dance. The flow state you get in when training or sparring with a partner is primal, raw and actually brings out the warrior spirit in women.
Women look manly with all the muscles after training
There is only so much level of the muscle building hormone, testosterone in women. Unless externally dosed with, a woman won’t grow bulky like a man. She can be as strong nonetheless. In fact with advancing age, women should take up such training at a gentle pace to stimulate the generation of testosterone and avoid muscle waste and atrophy.
