I trained with women, way back in the 60s and 70s in the martial arts. Usually, they were smaller, and you had to be watchful not to break their bones. To get more information about Martial Arts visit at http://mtkim.com/.
Still, they learned well, and, excepting for the infrequent ball kicker, were better affected. Now I see people like Rhonda Rousey, taking anybody and everyone to the mat and …snap! And there are women teaching the martial arts all over the place. Some are worthy, some are bad. But that holds true for men.
There are many differences, however.
The best way of telling these differences is through pretentious neutronic poetry: women are the nest and men are the spear. Ladies have a propensity to gather people in and take care of them; men have a tendency to go out and bash heads. And, this symbol is so inadequate, yet, there is a truth within.
If you take a look at the yin yang look of this: women internalize, men externalize. Which is like saying women cry and men yell. Yet, again, there is a truth within. Not for all, lots of anomalies and exclusions, but…the truth is still running deep within for most.
The most interesting thing for me, though, is the type of art sought by the masculinities. Should men seek hard, arm bashing, skull knocking arts? Like Karate and kickboxing, and so on? Should women seek force guiding, flowing arts? Like Tai Chi Chan, Wing Chun, and so on? It is an stimulating question, and there are enough exceptions that this question will likely never be answered. (Though, in certain arts, it has been answered in the historical).
