Women have some inalienable rights which men do not have. I am sure if the situation was reversed, the instructor would have stopped it.

As men, we intuitively know that there are parts of the body of other men we should not attack, unless it is a life and death situation. Just as we also know that there are parts of the female body we, as men, should not attack in a training environment.

pepto_bismol, I'm sure matters aren't as bad as they seem. Things like hat...you have to be in it to understand.

I mean, for a psychology experiment on behaviour modification/conditioning I decided to use punishment instead of positive reinforcement. In my dojo.

The aim? to decrease the amount of times my knees weren't bent. Method? A whack to the back of the legs with a bamboo piece from a broken shinai every time my knees weren't bent. Needless to say I had the best results in the class.

We all had a laugh during the experimentation, it's no biggy, people need to losen up.

HOWEVER, I don't understand why it is the "blessings" you're encouraged to hit. Is your instructor a woman? If it's a man, I don't understand AT ALL. I hear it's not a good feeling and I try not to get people's "b;essings" if i can help it.

So here we have this GIANT ENEMY CRAB...

...and we attack it's weak spots for MASSIVE DAMAGE...

That's what it's like for some women- a video game. You fight the boss, and you attack the pre-defined weak spot to win. Same goes for fighting men...it's too easy, and it should be banned. Like, Geneva Convention banned...

Then there's also the range of motion advantage gained from not having to wear a cup.

Hey PB, If you cant spar with control, donít get upset when you partner looses it as well.

Also, I donít see how a shot to the nadds = breaking a chicks nose.

If anyone ever intentionally hit me in the dangly bits, (cup or no) I'd never spar with them again. I need to be able to trust my training partner.

I wouldn't go seeking revenge, though. Two graves, and all that.

She will always remember never to kick me in the groin again...

duh

If a girl is to kick a guy in the groin which I consider NOT a target, then I don't see why I can't punch her in the nose, after all that is ussualy NOT a target.

Ok yes my instructor is male. The guy I hit had also broken several ribs of a yellow belt a few weeks prior. He was big headded and cocky. I have no choice but to train with guys. I'm the only female in the advanced class. At the time I was 17 and weighed about 105 lbs. this guy was also about my age but weighed about 180. A big difference in size. I felt it was either busted ribs or a kick to the jimmy to get him to back off. My instructor hasn't encouraged it as much as he used to since this guy has quit. He came back one other time and it was restressed and he left. I don't go around kicking guys in the nuts for the fun of it and I haven't done it intentionally since. Yes I have accidentally kicked another guy there a few times but it was completely accidental and my sparring partner understood.

I'd imagine that the sparring rules were light/medium contact PB, not full force.


Anyway, I was helping my instructor teach an Isshinryu class to an elementary school, the first question was "Who founded Isshinryu karate?" one little black kid raised his hand high in the air, and was called on "Tatsimo shimmaboo, shimmabooboo summthin like that!" which threw us into histarics. The next question was "Where was Isshinryu karate from?" Another little kid raised his hand, and was called on, his answer "Oklahoma Japan!"
