I can't find this info in past threads (apologies if it has been asked before).

I understand that MA appeals to few females, and certain arts seem to have a higher male:female ratio. Would interested folks please post the adult gender ratio in their dojos, and the art? (Not kid classes, or adults that take private lessons only.)

Thank you.

At my current dojo there are four students that come on a regular basis (me and three other people) all female. Usually class is just us four and some kids. There is one adult male that I have seen in class twice, the two Sensei's are male.

At my dojang in Toronto the split is pretty much 50-50.

In my undergraduate program, in my year, of 110 students, there are 5 females (me and four others). So the balance at my dojang seems better then what it probably is :P

When I was in American kenpo approx. 75% men.

Current JKD school, approx. 95% men.

Besides the ratio at any given time, it is also meaningful to see the ratio of long-stayers.

My view is males tend to stay around longer. The early drop out rate among females is high.
I'll rather be happy than right, anytime.

Of the dozen adults I saw the last time I attended class, two of them were women.

Beginners in schools I've been in are roughly 50-50 split. However as you go up the ranks, the number of women decreases quite a bit.

I'd say that there are more women by ratio in TKD than Jujutsu from my experiences.
