    Do You Have a Female Sensei? By Willard814 - 07-28-2011 02:16 PM


    I have a wonderful and skillful sensei who happens to be a woman. At first I thought how could a woman teach an art that was developed by man for men at a time when women weren't even allowed to speak out of turn. We all know in Asian culture men don't give women the respect they deserve and traditionally they are almost second class citizens in some countries. But after training with my sensei I'm glad she is a female there is no testosterone driven pissing contests in the dojo, we get our instruction in a nurturing motherly sort of way which makes for a great learning environment. I also don't feel nervous or intimidated during kumite and sparring instruction. So tell me what you think about women in the world of martial arts.
