Sometimes the truth is inconvenient
Here are a few inconvenient truths about the martial arts. Some people may agree that they are truths, and some may disagree, but the evidence speaks for itself if you just consider it, even though it may be inconvenient to do so.
If a martial arts school teaches these truths to its students, the students may become disillusioned and stop coming to classes and paying for classes. However, if the school was truthful with its students from the beginning, they will already know now these truths and will have accepted them, and probably, in spite of them, still be happy with the martial art they have chosen to practice. As with anything else, there are always exceptions to the truths, but exceptions do not means the truths are not in fact, true.
Men are physically superior to women
Contrary to what movies and televisionwould have us beleive, man will most always beat a woman in a fight, no matter the size or skill level of the woman. Men are naturally stronger, faster, quicker, and more aggressive than women. This is why most physical sports conduct separate competitions for men and women. Mentally or emotionally, women may be equal to, or arguably superior to men, but physically, men are superior. Yeah, there is always the argument that men do not have to endure the pain of childbirth, but then women do not have to endure the pain of a groin kick during a fight. A big man will usually win over a woman regardless of her size or training; however, he will also usually win over a smaller or untrained man, which is why there are weight classes in competitions.
