Overall, the ‘Wonder Women’ seminars will attempt to chip away at the gender disparity within the martial arts community. They will provide a dynamic seminar series for the UCLA community and will show the martial arts community that UCLA continues to progress towards inclusivity and innovation. Students will be able to view martial arts in a new lens facilitated through open-minded powerful female individuals.
Each seminar will highlight specific martial arts from around the world including Filipino Kali, Indonesian Silat and Thai Boxing. Learning the subtlety, power, strength and grace of these arts will also demonstrate to the community how changes in culture can be found throughout the arts in many ways.
