    I have a daughter who has 2 black belts in 2 different martial arts. A few years back I watched her standing crying as another girl beat her around the head in a kick boxing tournament. I had to explain to her – you do not have to go toe toe, its OK to take a step back.

    She currently represents NZ in 2 different sports & has not listened to dad. She never takes a step back.

      Awesome what a girl.

      Martial arts teaches such good behaviour and mental discipline never mind how good it is for the body.

        I was never into Martial arts myself – so I do not know where this came from. At 8yrs she would go off to Karate Camp & come home with bits of wood saying, Dad – look what I broke !

        She actually kept broken bits of wood in her bedroom rather than barbie dolls.

          I did it and found it challenging and loved it, I was a bit like your daughter. For the young ones I think they love the sense of attainment and boys and girls treated equally and always with respect. Martial arts is big on respect to opponent and that creates a safe environment … such a motivator.
          Sounds like your daughter has a a good constitution and a touch of positively bad ass attitude to achieve good for her :-)

      That is awesome. My kids both coming up the ranks in Karate and it has been so good for them!

      I strongly suggest she starts competing against the boys. Only THEN will she find out that she is in fact fighting ‘like a girl’.

      No disrespect at all because girls do other things better. But running, fighting and throwing are all examples where men are far better.

    I do things like a bad ass girl, a good girl, a mature woman, a feminine girl, a hard out girl and all other ways being a girl because it is what I am, chick, lady bearch woman …GIRL

    Valerie Adams throws like a girl. Yvette Williams jumps like a girl. Allison Roe runs like a girl. Fiao’o Fa’amausilli plays Rugby like a girl.
