Womens' Issues: Health, Relationships,and Career Roles

There are a lot of websites, books, television name it...there's all kinds of information out there to bombard women and how to live life. You should be thin, you should be proud of how you look no matter what; you should eat better, eat here because it's cheaper; you should stay at home, you should work, you should be a mom and work, you should get married, you should not get married, you should get an education, you should be the woman who does it all, you don't have to be the woman who does it all....What message is being sent? CONFUSION!

Working in mental health, and particularly with women, roles for women are a huge factor in my counseling focus presently. Women CAN have it all, without having a man. They can adopt, have children by artificial insemination, have a career, and basically have their own lives without the need for a man. Men's roles are changing too because of this. What used to be our mothers', grandmothers', and women before them, expectations were to be stay at home mother's while the husband was the bread-winner. Times have definitely change as we move further into the 21st century. However, commercials and ads targeted to women push for them to be thin, look younger, have a career, have children/don't have children, get married/don't get married. There is no right or wrong answer to any of these. Each woman has a right to decide what she wants to do with her life.

A great womens' website resource is:

There is information on health- for body and mind, career and financial advice, and relational ideas/suggestions. It's important that as a woman you utilize the support system you have surrounding you. If you feel you need extra support trying to juggle all the things you have going on in your life, seek out a counselor or a therapist. Having a safe-place to explore these issues with someone who understands womens' issues can be very liberating and get you started on a new path to life. And remember, you are who you are, and be proud of that.

Hello Callum,You are welcome and thank you for the question and I am glad you asked it! I have been teaching Kung Fu San Soo now for about 14 years here locally in the US and really enjoy helping students learn to defend themselves and especially enjoy the confidence that they gain. It is awesome for me to see how that confidence moves out to other parts of their lives and helps them create successful lives from the training.I am also a Certified Fitness Trainer (30 years experience) and get the same satisfaction from helping my clients with their health and fitness. I am also a web designer (18 years experience) and have had several years of video editing experience as well. These three areas of life are what I love to do in this world along with the study of human potential.So in 1995, I decided to put all my talents together to help others and started by creating eBooks and designed a website to get them out to the world called Kung Fu Training Secrets . Once the site became popular I was inundated with requests to help people all over the world learn self defense and a fitness lifestyle. I decided to create an on-line school at that point to help everyone that was contacting me and after a couple of years the school format was not working well enough to give those people the help they asked for because of the challenges I had teaching from a distance.In October of 2010 I chose to switch formats to a members site and included a lot of other features so that the members could interact with me as well as each other. I decided to break it up into levels of instruction in hopes that the material would be easier to learn and also decided if this was going to work the way I intended it to, I needed to give away the basic principles for free to develop the member base.So here we are in February of 2011 and the site has more than 900 Free members and about a dozen or so that have moved up into the paying memberships. I am glad I chose to do it this way because I know that the members that are serious enough to pursue this will reach great success in their lives and the ones that weren t, at least got a chance to learn the basic fundamentals of Kung Fu!Good luck in your training!Sifu Tony Mendoza Jr.
