Welcome to the Women’s Symposium website. We are a resource library dedicated to Kenpo women as they pursue their journey in the martial arts. On this site we get the opportunity to hear from women as they address personal and everyday challenges unique to women in the martial arts. Most often, martial arts classes and seminars are taught by men, and there is little input from women. However, we recognize that women are actively pursuing their dreams, influencing the martial arts, owning their own schools, and making a difference in the lives of others. This site will introduce you to the many leaders we have in Kenpo. You will gain insight into their personal journeys and find that though their experiences are uniquely theirs, we share similar challenges. Together, we can help each other. Thank you for visiting us.
