Martial Arts is just as popular with girls in Japan than it is boys. Also some of the most famous MMA female fighters in the world are Japanese.

While girls can do many martial arts, I think there is a traditional connection with girls to do So(u)jutsu (Spear Fighting/Training) and may be popular with girls. Judo tends to be another popular martial art amongst females.

Strength is the product of struggle, you must do what others don't to achieve what others won't

in my opinion, ii guess it's normal for me because the world has changed. Women need something to protect themselves. Pepperspray sometimes does not come in handy esp when you forget to bring it. Thus, body as a form of weapon is a good choice for protection.

have a reason why you take martial art in the first place.
and "NEVER GIVE UP".
