of course they can, as the rules are that only the women may strike and then men do nothing

Berlick and Joelm I don't care what people say what I saw was some skilled men larger stronger get taken out by skilled Women of instructor level skill with sticks geared up to strike above the waist any thing goes. Except prolong inside fighting.

Again we were practicing targeting and precision not full scale war. From long range and inside they tri-angled and out manauvered men for the most or 1st strike to a specific target.

At first round elmination the Men didn't try hard, but after seeing the other Men lose the 2nd and 3rd round they tried harder some still lost. With a weapon it seems that women can equal/beat Men. There may have been a different in skill level in some of the matches, It was a seminar I don't know these people. It didn't look like it some of those guys looked pretty good. Seeing is believing.

Well I want to refer to this thread.
A difference of skill can make up for a difference in strength. And with some rules the effect of strength is minimised, rendering skill the decisive factor.

That post makes a little more sense, but when you say "women can beat stronger men pending rules" it sounds like you're saying that the only way that women can beat stronger men is if it is in a competition with rules. Am I wrong or is that still what you're saying?

Women generally have better eye-hand co-ordination, and bladed weapons handling is all about this.

This has been said many times before, but historically there have been women warriors who led men into battle. These women were of course exceptional individuals. I suppose todays' women when given weapons which do not require extraordinary strength to wield, and better eye-hand co-ordination means better speed and accuracy, an equiliser factor comes into play.

So I am not surprised at all. In gun shooting, especially handguns, I've seen women out-perform men, including myself.

Another factor is padding. Women have an in-born fear of physical injury to their bodies. With full padding, this fear is over come and they can concentrate fully on their technique. And I suspect that the men do most of the attacking and thus commiting themselves to counter attacks. We all know that taking a defensive position in combat have certain advantages.

History does report females being warriors on the battle grounds. Your analogy is almost exactly what happened the men after the second round the men charged in over confident like you poor innocent victim take this, and were angles off and countered quickly and precisely. Some were disarmed and standing there with there pants down so to speak.

Initially the 1st round was sure over confidence all the men lost. 2nd round was spirited exchanges still over confident and most of the men lost. 3rd round was heated quick exchanges and quick resolution, women won most, not all but most.

Could have been the luck of the draw. Again there were no finishing moves or prolonged inside fighting. Just entry, attack, counter..., exits.

JoelM thats opening a can of worms, I'll let you answer/ponder your own question, I'm just reporting the what happened.

I'm not opening the can of worms, I'm just trying to figure out what you're saying.

It seems that since you won't answer that you do see women as inferior.

Ok I'll bite I see women as sheltered, smaller framed people, with bodies that naturally can't pack as much muscle on, less competitive by nature and they think with the right side of their brain. But in this event they as I stated.

Initially the 1st round was sure over confidence all the men lost. 2nd round was spirited exchanges still over confident and most of the men lost. 3rd round was heated quick exchanges and quick resolution, WOMEN WON MOST time.

Could have been the luck of the draw. Again there were no finishing moves or prolonged inside fighting. Just entry, attack, counter..., exits.

JoelM I'm just reporting the what happened. It seems you have a problem imagining what I saw. Would you like to reason why or elaborate on why U question? I can't change what happened unskilled and skilled lost to skilled Women.

I mean who r what am gonna believe U or my lying eyes.

So you're saying women can't do any of the following?:

uses logic
detail oriented
facts rule
words and language
present and past
math and science
can comprehend
knowing
acknowledges
order/pattern perception
knows object name
reality based
forms strategies
practical
safe

These are all functions of the left side of the brain.

Also in saying that do you assume that all men only use the left side of their brain?

Neko, where did you get such an inaccurate statement from?

You sure know how to impress the ladies!
