Sorry, But I did post this at the end of another topic but I was interested enough to start a new topic on it. Hope thats ok with the mods [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG].

This might be opening up a whole can of worms but my intuition says "Why should'nt a man hit a woman any more than a man shouldn't hit a man or a woman a woman or woman a man? (think thats all the combinations)"

I do mean this as a serious question. Does gender become an issue in fights? If your in the right (not the aggressor) then what difference does it make? As for being brought up that way[to not hit women] thats a horrible justification! Parents do not always know best. Now I appreciate I might be wrong be majority vote in this but I really want to hear other people in the forums' (especially some women) perspectives. Is it ok to hit women? (Obviously in the same curcumstances that you would hit a man. e.g a fight)

I also apoligize if this has come up before.

I've gotten into several fights with females. You know it just...I dunno. I tend to feel more guilty, this problem has been less occurent the more I do fight them.

Like they say, "if you want to challenge someone like a man, be prepared to get beat down like a man!"

You can just let go, it makes it easy to hit anyone. But remember this, don't let go, it'll hurt your opponent more.

It is wrong for anyone of either gender to hit anyone else of either gender except in defence of self, another or property.

If the above criteria is met, gender is as irrelevant as the colour of your attacker's hair.

Yeah, I'm sorry. I forgot to say "don't start it under any circumstances!"

Thanks for the replies Oozuru and Sharon. Sharon, I feel the same way, only you put it much more elegantly than I could have [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG].

i'm a female, and have boxed (just for fun) against a lot of my guy friends. A lot of my girl friends also box with the guys. From my experience, it is okay to hit a girl (whether you're a girl or a guy). HOWEVER, there is a particular person who is always saying that if a girl did so-and-so (usually something totally ridiculous), he'd hit her even though she's a girl, blahblahblah. It is NEVER okay to be the aggressor and hit someone because they're irritating you or what have you, whether you or they are female or male.
With that said, the only ones who seem to have a real problem with the whole "hitting girls" thing are the guys.

Only time i hit girls is in a competition or in Kickboxing, I find it disrespectful to hit women outside of the ring. If she attacks you, Use grapple moves and judo or something, Don't HIT her, Lock up her arms and legs or something untill she calms down...i dunno...i just don't belive in hitting women.

The issue, from the guys point of view, is also where you hit the girls, even in a MA training context. Just telling the guys to go right ahead and hit hard anywhere does not make it any easier for them.

Most men don't really have female enemies; all familiar females are either mothers, wives, girlfriends or sisters. Hitting a fellow female MA trainee makes you feel you are hitting one of these people.

So its not that the men don't want to, its more like they can't.

Its like killing and eating a chicken which you have reared from a chick as a pet.

i'm a male, and i believe it's wrong to hit females unless it's in a competition, or self defence. if they want to act like a man and hit you, then they can be treated like a man and be hit right back. but if their just playing around, or annoying you, it's not right to hit them for many reason, most being your prolly stronger, and females are easily hurt quicker. but when fighting, liek they suggested before try to just put them in a lock, or something and refrain from hitting them. but if neccesary, it's ok to hit them if they hit you first, and intend serious harm.
