For Women

Kunoichi – "deadly flower," the term used for a female ninja. It is said that women were particularly useful in information gathering by taking on roles exclusive to women in order to gain access to people and information (e.g. servant, maid, etc.). According to Dr. Hatsumi, kunoichi were specially trained in psychological skills and intuition as well as Hensojutsu (e.g. acting, disguise, infiltration) and entertaining skills (e.g. music, tea ceremony, dance) to master their roles.

Women excel at martial arts because of their inherent natural movement and intuition. Discover the many benefits from studying martial arts including: fitness, self-defense, well-being, flexibility, confidence and awareness of your surroundings.

"Martial arts gave me a sense of self; self awareness of the things going on around me and also awareness of my capabilities in protecting myself. I did things I never thought I would do. I think some people have the impression that martial arts is all about hurting the other person, it gives you a sense of peace and calm." Monica R.

"Learning martial arts empowers me to be confident and teaches me everyday skills to ensure not only my safety, but the safety of those around me. I apply the values and lessons not only in my personal life, but also in my profession. My children, through martial arts, are learning patience and perseverance while gaining flexibility, respect for others and self-protection." Karine L.
