Can you explain a little why this is limited to boys?  Are similar classes being offered for girls?

Thanks.

It's an all-male class with a male instructor.
1) Some boys feel uncomfortable pairing up with girls for pratice of self-defense techniques, since it involves physical contact, however minimal.
2) An all-male class has a different dynamic from a mixed class and allows boys to ask a greater variety of questions unhindered by societal norms.
3) Some families have religious views and prefer a male only class.

We have self-defense classes for different groups at different times. We have had a women's self-defense course taught by a female instructor. In the future there will be self defense classes for girls only (8-14) - for the same reasons as above, a mixed class for youngsters (4-7), etc. Dates undetermined.
