If you are in martial arts or are thinking about joining up you should check this out.
This is a great read!
My only side comment is that on Thursdays in the last class (which is an all adult class), my sensei has made gay jokes before which have all been funny and not offensive at all. It’s quite funny actually and she’s such a supportive person who is non-judgmental at all.
PLEASE READ and if your club environment constitutes one of these in a bad way think about changing clubs! Martial arts is not about domination but about finding a way to better yourself and being insecure about your members or your instructor doesn’t do any good for yourself!
