A special association wide women’s group?

What are your thoughts on a special woman’s group (Joshi-bu) for our karate organization (Seiwakai) and / or for your association? Not necessarily nor specific to Goju-ryu Karate-do.

While here in Japan, I asked two of the female members of the JKF Goju-kai, whom were volunteering at the seminar, for their thoughts on the matter. Both agreed it would be a spectacular idea however both also commented that it wouldn’t be well accepted. As of yet, no woman has made such a proposal and perhaps it would be better received if a male initiated the idea, of course to get the ball rolling and then a core group of women could take the reigns.

I’m curious if the ladies that follow our group or association would be interested. Let me know your thoughts.

I’ll propose the same to Vassie Naidoo Shihan while here with the intention of such a program being further adopted by the JKF Goju-kai and other organizations.
