Sometimes, young ladies take up ballet or beauty pageants. Other times, they pick up a samurai sword and learn how to kick some serious booty.
Take, for instance, the 10-year-old girl who is either taking a Samurai sword fighting class, or is training to single-handedly defeat Genghis Khan.
The sweet little girl shows the audience who’s boss as she whacks and whirls her sword through the air and practices the routine she’s been working on for the past six months.
You can’t watch this video without being extremely impressed, but you also can’t watch it without taking into consideration the way we talk about young girls. Our society often teaches them to be pretty, sweet, and perfect. But this little girl is a role model for many young women out there. Perfection is not the peak of achievement and we can grow into strong women with muscle you don’t want to mess with.
If you believe all girls are strong and if you stand for teaching children to fight like a girl, then SHARE this video and let everybody out there know that just because you’re a girl, doesn’t mean you can’t kick butt!
