Martial arts, does it scare guys away?

I took it for five years. I got high up on the ranking system, loved it very much. However I spoke to a couple of guys who never did it and they seemed wary or that's how I took it.

What's your opinion guys that meet girls that are in it?

  • You may know martial arts but you don't tall and/or muscular, so "no guy wants an amazon" tropes has much less affect in your case, instead it is an waif-fu trope which is far more popular among guys, anyway I don't have problem with both, an as long as the girl the not taller then me, then I am fine, if I was dating an girl who is more muscular then me and/or an girl that have more fighting skills then me, then I think that is would encourage me to train more. :)

    "Strangely, as far as this trope is concerned her actual inclination and ability to (sexually) assault, maim, cripple, or kill him aren't as important as whether she looks capable of doing so."

  • I took karate for 3 years, it's good to be able to know how to defend yourself when the time comes. If it ever comes that you need to.

  • I couldn't care less. The only issue I might have with it is that I am wary of girls who are too much into typical male activities.

    • I like sports... but I'm not manly. I also love my makeup and etc...

  • Not me, no. In fact, I find it quite beneficial. That way, we both can defend ourselves against idiots. I don't know any myself right now, but I'm certainly willing to learn.

      Give me some proof besides word of mouth than I might believe you.

  • Are those the type of guys you would really be interested in any way? Consider it an easy way to quickly weed out douche bags :)

    • Chinese kungfu kenpo

    • That's cool. I recently took up Muay Thai. Not really a martial art and more of a combat sport but I like it.

  • U WANNA GO, BRUH? U WANNA FIGHT, MATE?

  • They were probably just disappointed that you train kempo instead of a real martial art.

    • Yeah... I had a guy admit they had fantasies about something like that...

  • I think it's pretty badass. I wish I took up martial arts instead of ballet. While ballet is beautiful and pushed me, I didn't want to actually dance.
