Scottish Karate Governing Body's guidance for coaching women and girls

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Karate has a long history of mixed-sex training. The diversity of skills and actions involved in karate, and the diversity of its members, makes karate an exciting and dynamic martial art. Scotland also has a history of successful female karateka as club practitioners, association executive members, coaches, competitors, and referees/officiating staff. Developing or increasing a female membership can: dilute an aggressive bullying environment that has been found in some male sports; increases class sizes; increase the pool of expertise and talent within your club; aid men/boys developing respectful relations with women/girls; and, ofcourse, bring extra revenue into a club. As such, ensuring your dojo is suited to welcoming and retaining female members is beneficial for women, girls, coaches, and clubs. Informed by academic research, this booklet aims to help coaches increase and retain their female membership and develop encouraging and empowering dojos for women and girls by: 1. Raising awareness of barriers and issues that affect women and girls decision to take-up karate, or continue their practice, and, 2. Providing guidance of good practice
