Training Women in the Martial Arts is for male and female martial arts instructors, female martial arts students, and supporters of women in the martial arts. The book is designed to help people involved in the martial arts understand the challenges women face when training and help them create and provide appropriate martial arts and self defense instruction. The obstacles female students face, both in and out of the training hall often go unrecognized. By educating themselves, students become better prepared to overcome these hurdles. Instructors can offer more appropriate and effective instructions - thereby retaining students and helping women achieve their martial arts goals. There is no direct competition, since this is the only book that directly targets training women in the martial arts. Most how-to martial arts books are written primarily with men in mind and women's experiences differ dramatically from men's.
