Women embrace their warrior heritage with martial arts

Women have been portrayed throughout the centuries as being helpless and weak. Hollywood, toy companies, and beauty magazines create the belief that women cannot be strong and beautiful at the same time. Parents encourage their daughters to be "princesses" who should marry a "prince."  But times are chaning as women are showing that they can do what men do.  Women are warriors by nature and today more women are embracing their warrior nature through Martial Arts and combat sports.  Evidence of this can be seen in Hollywood as we continue to see more movies and T.V. with women being shown as being tough, heroic, and brave.

 

Is it true that women were historically known as warriors?

History has always spoken of the brave acts of men, but there is another side of history, where women ruled with power, commanded armies, and fought valiantly in battles, defeating enemies of greater size and strength.  If you ever thought you were not strong enough because you are a woman or girl,  then think again. These women are about to show you just how tough ladies can be.

Picking a Martial Arts that's right for you makes all the difference

Picking a martial art and a school can be a challenging task, but you can make this process easier by understanding what you like and the purpose for which you want to take a martial art. The majority of today's martial arts schools fall under 8 areas of Training focus: Forms Tournaments, Point Sparring, Tricking, Entertainment, Fitness and Health, Belt Ranking, Competitive Sport, and Self-defense. While there are some schools that will mislead potential students about their focus of training, the majority of the schools are very clear about what their focus is and how the students are trained. A school's focus is often reflected in the weekly training of the students, during the drills, sparring and attitude of the instructors. We make picking a martial arts easy for you.

How Choose the Right Martial Art School

What some schools don't want you to know about Black Belts

There is a common perception in western society that having a Black Belt makes you a tough person and that you know your Martial Arts. For many years now the media and even some schools have pushed this perception to brainwash students, parents, and the general population into thinking martial arts belts are the ultimate trophy to gain. Everywhere you look, you see and hear the perception that the highest achievement and the ultimate level to Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Karate is to get the legendary black belt. Once you achieve this level you will be a fearless, skill fighter with everything you'll need to defeat your bullies and attackers.

Here's the reality about black belts and your training and what people don't tell you.
