I wrote a post earlier this week talking about women in Jiu-Jitsu. I was referring to Keith Owen’s post found here.
When I first found Keith’s post and alluded to it on this blog, I had no idea he had already ruffled the feathers of so many people out there. I had no idea of how many people had read his post. Christy wrote a nice comment on my blog about the issue, but believe it or not, many others out there have written rebuttals as well.
I first found reference to Georgette Oden’s criticism here. I was looking through this blog to add to my “Top 50 Jiu-Jitsu Blogs” page and stumbled across this. By the way, the rest of this post is a very good read and I did add the blog to my list.
Basically, I just want to direct you to Georgette’s response to Keith. Whether or not Keith simply put this post out to gain publicity (these tactics have been heard of before) or whether he truly holds certain beliefs, we’ll never know, but do give Georgette’s post a once over. It’s a great response to an interesting take on things.
