Women Fighters
« on: January 15, 2004, 12:08:21 AM »
Good Evening:

I wanted to see if there were any other women in here thats compete on a team? How do you like it?

Do you also spar or continuous fight? What is your favorite?

I am also interested in the mens opinion as well. What do you think of women fighting? Is it a turn on? ;D OR a turn off? >:(

I hardly look at it as a turn on or off. I do appreciate some of the serious fighters among the women though.

Let me define turn on / turn off.

I meant it as are you appreciative/supportive of women fighters or not.


Thank you Sifu Rob for bringing that to my attention. ;D

Oh very supportive. Some of the best fights anymore in the amatuer ranks are the women. they seem to have more heart and less ego then the guy's.

I see.  ;) Yes, its time to stop if your getting hurt.

Fighting to prove something? The thought hadn't crossed my mind. I thought everyone fought because its just fun. ;)

Interesting comments. I'll be back gotta go think about it some more. ::)

Okay we've identified that we are in support at least 3 of us have. ;)

So lets start naming some of those great fighters. I heard that Barbara Bones was one heck of a fighter. Can anyone confirm this legend or truth? ::)

Serene,
The best woman fighter I ever saw came out of the school you train in! Her name is Mary Wilson. When Mary fought they hit each other hard. Not the tap, tap stuff they do today. Not only did she have power, but speed and combinations. She like a bull in a china shop.

By the way, her brother Bobby Wilson in his prime was the best fighter pound for pound I ever saw-PERIOD!

Continous fighting is better in my book.  It shows which fighters have better strategy not just cheap tricks.  (It is also a different adrenalin rush).

Women don't have as great an opportunity to continous fight.  I try to make 4 tourament each year.  In the last 9 years, I have had the opportunity to continous fight only one time.

As far as team fighting, in Ohio I have not yet seen team fighting that was strickly women.  Most team fighting is built of several men and one women.

Your absolutely right Prof.

Yes, however I was looking to hear of other women fighters too. I've heard names, now I'd like to see if they were legends or truth. ::)

Yes, Mary Wilson was the real thing!  ;D I remember they said that Mary was the girl that when she would kick the guys in the groin the cups would break. :o ;) I heard many men were afraid of her too and thats truth.  ;D

She will always be my idol. ;D

Mitch, I remember when Mary taught the class on benicia rd. She was one of the roughest teachers, but I didn't care because she was so nice to look at. Not to often you see that combination  8)

Greetings,
I will be competing in June and in Vallejo for the first time.  ;D
I will be sparring and competing in forms.  I am new to Kajukenbo and I am not sure what to expect.  I have always been a scrapper but I am finding it challenging getting in for the point. 

Do you know of many adult lower ranks that compete?
