Training in the martial arts offers an experience unlike any other physical activity, including running, biking, yoga, and team sports. It’s one of the few activities that offer a total body workout while also challenging your physical, mental, and emotional limitations.
Women Are Recognized for Their Accomplishments in Martial Arts
Today, many women earn master’s ranks and higher black belt ranks in various martial arts disciplines, and some even dominate the competitive martial arts circuit.
The popularity of martial arts in the West has largely been influenced by Hollywood and other entertainment cultures. Several notable film and television icons, especially the likes of Michelle Yeoh, have been huge influences to women in martial arts.
Also, more recently, the accomplishments of mixed martial arts athletes such as Angela Lee, Ronda Rousey, and Gina Carano, to name a few, have bolstered the interest in martial arts among young women.
