As a grappling martial arts instructor I find teach Judo to females is very difficult. Most females don't like the rolling around you do when doing Judo, BJJ or Submission Wrestling. Great Article by Rhea and a real problem for females doing just about any Martial Art

Couldn't agree more. Untrained offenders would often leave hand somewhere for grabbers, or get easily on a triangle.

This is a very important point to me and would like to ask for other's opinion on this. I may be completelymisunderstading what MMA is. Self defense is an intrinsic part of my Luta Livre training, which I believed, until now, to be same or very similar to MMA. Luta livre teaches submissions and torsions, which are all very useful to pacify opponents, or to hurt them if needed, but we also trained punches, multiple strikes, rotated and straight kicks, evasion techniques and other training specific to street fighting. I was fortunate enough to have to use this in Rio only twice in my entire life, and both times it worked well , on a thug beating a girl on the streets and 2 guys attempting to steal my car.


So the question is: Do you agree that MMA will not train you to street events? If not, then I still have not found what to train in America.

"I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, and the "macho newbie" I started with made things even worse. It was as if he had to prove something to everyone in the room by beating up someone half his size for at least 5 minutes."

I know exactly what you are talking about, I am a 12 year female martial artist and I have been doing BJJ for 9 years now.

I come in contact with many men that think they need to prove something to the rest of the class that he can not be over powered by a woman, it was very insulting.

The good thing about women in martial arts is that we demand respect, and if we show that we will always get it.

Wonderful article!

I think any woman who starts a martial art and steps on the mat is due a certain amount of respect.

You disagree with what I said, or with what you seem to think I said?

You should always show any training partner respect. The time that you don't is the time you are not welcome on the mat yourself.

That would depend on the training partner. For the majority yes, in BJJ it might be everyone. It's not the case in all the arts though.

Confidence not backed up by ability is almost never a good thing. Not saying that's necissarily the case here but be honest with your self, is karate actualy making you a better fighter than MMA was or is it just letting you feel like one.

Rhea you're one good fighter. Though I don't really think BJJ and MMA are the best martial arts for women, what matters most is how you value the sports and you're dedication to learn.

Why don't you think MMA and BJJ are the best martial arts for women?
