I do a form of martial arts and we spar a lot in class. There are definitely people in class who are better than me but apparently I'm a pretty good fighter and I guess some guys in class are afraid to fight me for some reason. I'm afraid that that might be a big reason why guys don't ask me out :( I'm sort of on the smaller side and don't really look like I could hurt anyone so most guys I know are kind of surprised when they find out I do martial arts. Why do a lot of guys say they don't like girls who can beat them up? Would you date or like a girl that could probably beat you up? Why or why not?

Here's a short answer that will sum it up quite well.
How is your temper? Are you the jealous type? What are the odds of you getting abusive?
Answer those questions, and think hard about the image you project. If you seem like you could get scary, then yeah that's going to be detrimental. If you're level headed, and it's obvious, you should be fine, for some guys anyway. But naturally some guys might get intimidated.
