COURAGE, DEDICATION, INTUITION

IF KARATE WAS JUST MUSCOLAR STRENGHT, HEAVINESS OR EFFORT IT SHOULD BE FIT ONLY FOR MEN.

PRECONCEPTIONS ON PHYSICAL INFERIORITY AND LESS ATTITUDE OF WOMEN FOR MARTIAL ARTS ARE UNFOUNDED.

PRACTICE OF KARATE EXTREMELY EVOLVED THROUGH YEARS BECOMING SPORT, SELF DEFENSE, IMPROVEMENT OF PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH.

LOOKING FOR WORDS, PHRASES AND IDEAS TO DESCRIBE MARTIAL ARTS WE FOUND ONLY THOUGHTS AND CHARACTERISTICS DUE TO WOMEN'S NATURE: VELOCITY AND LIGHTNESS, PERSEVERANCE, SELF CONSCIOUSNESS, INNER STRENGHT, CONCENTRATION, ARMONY, PASSION, RESOLUTION, AUDACITY, DEFENSE, LOVE FOR THE BODY, RESPECT. NOWADAYS, ALL OF THESE WORDS HAVE EXTRAORDINARY RELEVANCE THEY ARE VALUABLE TOOLS FOR FIGHTING GENDER'S VIOLENCES AND WOMEN'S RIGHTS VIOLATION.

FOR THE PERFORMANCE WE CHOSE THE SHINY AND DETERMINED FACE OF A WOMANAND THREE WORDS: BRAVERY, DEDICATION, INTUITION.

WE DEDICATE THE DEEPNESS OF THESE EYES CONTAINING ALL THOSE WORDS TO ALL FEMALE KARATEKA OF THE PRESENT AND OF THE PAST
