people of color and traditional martial arts
This community is about talking about the experiences of people of color in traditional martial arts from an anti-racist, anti-sexist and anti-heterosexist stance.

This includes experiences within your traditional heritage, or cross-heritage martial arts, as many of us have lost ties or our cultures lost traditional arts. It's about navigating the complexity of how privilege and appropriation and power issues play out in martial arts.

This isn't about style wars, or simple gushing about your school or style, this is about what you're studying in the larger context, and what it helps you find.
