Women and MMA

Did you ever wonder if you have what it takes?  Are you intimidated by Mixed Martial Arts?  Women's interest in MMA has increased in the last few years and I am proud to say, the WOMEN bring it!!  Sanshou is just one of the favorites for women that I will talk about today.  Sanshou was developed by the Chinese Military and concentrates on four essential skills:  Kick, strike, throw, and lock.  Sanshou features hand/kick combo's, takedowns, throws, sweeps, and clinching. 

As women we really need to always be aware of our surroundings.  If presented with a situation where we would have to defend ourselves and/or our children, could we really do it?  I know, for myself, I always think I am bad ass and can take care of myself.  But the reality of it is I am middle aged and completely out of shape.  I think no matter how old we are, we all would benefit from some type of MMA technique.  What are your thoughts?  Would you want to learn?
