That's a pity. Why did they disapprove?

I'm sure that if you want to continue you will find a way eventually. Don't lose hope.

If you have already restarted or started another art, best wishes to you.

My father always said MA is for boys! I got kicked out of the house for dating Roger and telling my younger sister to try to learn MA. After I met Roger I started to learn from his school, and he cooks.

MA for boys??? Rubbish. Some of the best MA practitioners I've ever had the pleasure of training with are women.

My TKD master (5th Dan) is a woman and she's really good at TKD believe me.

The creator of Wing Chun Kung Fu was a woman.

This coming from a guy who has over a decade of training in martial arts.

No offense but your father is a little misinformed.

I told him about wing chun. His response was it was a man dressed as a woman.

I don't mean to pry and you don't even have to answer this but how old is Roger? You are 14 and you are dating him and now you have moved in with him. Just curious.

Well, nobody in my family did any real martial arts but my dad was a wrestler in highschool and at one point was #2 in Ontario, my brother currently wrestles, but other then that I'm the first.

My dad never got heavily into the martial arts. However, he has been a real support to me throughout the years. He was a career military man. His dad, my grandfather, boxed to help pay for his college. I guess the military and fighting do go back a ways in my family. I work with my son some when he shows an interest he goes through spells but he's been around it all his life.

I'm 15 now and Roger's now 16. Yeah I live with him, his grandfather was like a recessive multi-millionarie. Who lived in a trailer from age 50 to 73.
