Fighting--Should I do it?
I've been very interested in competitive fighting (something like karate, mixed martial arts, kung-fu, or boxing) for years, and I've always wanted to take a class. I was hesitant for two reasons: I am a girl, and I have a small stature (I stand at about 5'0 give or take an inch, and weigh about 100 pounds). I have been told that, because of my gender and size, I won't be taken seriously if I do decide to take a class (mixed martial arts and boxing in particular).
I'm curious, should I just go ahead and do it, or leave well enough alone?
