    I once knew a good BJ girl too .. um, but that isn't what we are here to talk about. :P

    I think every girl should learn how to defend herself. Even if she isn't the best fighter in
    the class - a girl who can punch a guy real hard
    in the throat is going to have a better chance in
    a bad situation than a girl that can't. You don't have to be excellent at martial arts for it to profit you. I'd rather my girl were half-decent at martial arts than excellent at badmitten.

    my kung fu eeeeeees better than yours!

    It's tough for women who have "masculine" attitude towards anything. I get the most negative feedback from other women. There's this one woman -- nice lady -- but she WHINES about everything. If I clip her a little with a punch (just a little contact, like to the arms or chest) she freaks. I mean, hey, I still shouldn't hit her in drills -- I don't have the control I want -- but she shouldn't be shrieking to the teacher either. The irony is that she has no control whatsoever and constantly whacks me very hard in stick and knife training and I don't say anything, becuause, well, I just wouldn't.

    But women like her make the rest of us -- the serious six-days-a-week'ers like me and another girl, the ones who break bones and keep training -- look bad. I have to remind the guys "I'm pretty sturdy, you know. You can actually hit me."

    I'm going to have to disagree with some of the posts made here as far as they say that women are unable to handle themselves. I help teach a bjj class at my local college and I don't lose to anyone save for the instructor and a nontrad friend of the instructor's who weights about 235 (I weight 145-155). This includes students who are wrestlers, marines, and football players of all shapes and sizes. But, there is one person who can get me in a scarfhold and pin me indefinitely. And it's a girl. She probably weights in the 120-130 area and is one of 'my' students. I haven't really taught her any submissions in depth from there yet... but when I do, I'll have to watch out.
