International Women's Day 2022

International Women's Day 2022 - some of our female students have shared how participating in Taekwon-Do or Kickboxing makes them feel.

39% of women aged 16 and over are not active enough to get the full health benefits of sport and physical activity, compared to 35% of men. (Sport England)

Fear of judgement, lacking confidence, not having enough time and many other practical, and emotional barriers stop many women from being as active as they would like. This gender gap starts with girls being less active from a very young age.

In youth sports, girls are more likely to drop out than boys when they hit puberty, due to having their periods, lack of confidence, lack of positive role models, poor opportunities and poor practice from coaches.

Imagine a gender equal world.

A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.

A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.

A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Together we can forge women's equality.

Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.

As a female martial arts instructor, I vow to always support, progress and give opportunities to all my students equally, but also to promote an environment where girls are respected as martial artists equally to their male counterparts.

I will protect them as far as I can from discrimination, sexualisation (especially having been subjected to this myself) and inequality.

I know my girls (indeed, all my students) have my back, and I definitely have theirs!
