What makes a woman sexy to men? The honest truth is that preferences vary from guy to guy but there are certain kinds of women that all men absolutely adore and fall head over heels for. And it just so happens that women who practice martial arts are one of them!

So what exactly makes a woman who practices martial arts so attractive to men? Today, Evolve Daily reveals the 6 Reasons Why Men Prefer Women Who Do Martial Arts:

1) Because men want a woman who is fit.

It’s not just about how sexy women who practice martial arts tend to be, but the fact that they make the effort to stay fit. Just as it is with men, getting off the couch to get in shape reflects how much a woman respects herself. That’s why a woman who practice martial arts is always fit, toned, and in the best shape of her life.


2) Because men want a woman who is strong inside and out.

Women are NOT the ‘weaker sex’ and many female fighters and martial artists have proven that time and time again. Martial arts strengthens anyone on the inside and out, making them both physically and mentally strong to stand up for themselves.

That is why women who practice martial arts are independent, strong, and confident, which is why men are so drawn to them!


3) Because men want a woman who is intelligent and adventurous.

It’s no secret that adventurous people are a lot of fun to be around. Martial artists are always adventurous; they love to try new techniques, spar with people that are better or bigger than them, and are always willing to test themselves on the mats or in the cage. Their experience training martial arts have also made them intelligent beings.

Men love women who are adventurous and intelligent. It could mean anything from creative dates and exciting outdoor activities to deep intellectual conversations . This helps keep things interesting and fun and that is extremely sexy to a man.


4) Because men want a woman who is passionate.

Passionate people are not common and they often have the most magnetic and attractive personalities. It’s hard not to be attracted to someone who is incredibly passionate about something he or she loves.

A woman who spends hours training and still finds time to YouTube her favorite martial artists afterwards show just how passionate they are. Isn’t that the definition of passion?


5) Because men want a woman who is determined.

Women who practice martial arts are ambitious, purposeful, and determined. They set goals and achieve them despite the cost. Having fought through so many tough moments in training makes a woman tough, powerful, and disciplined; a combination that no doubt sets her apart and makes her all the more attractive to men.


6) Because men want a woman who understands the value of teamwork.

Anyone who has been in relationship knows how important teamwork is. It takes two hands to clap, and sometimes that means not getting what you want in order to get the best outcome.

Martial artists are taught to be humble and respectful towards others. They understand the value of compromise and being considerate for one another, and no one can deny how useful that will be in a relationship!


Although preferences vary and there are many things a man looks for in a woman, but a woman who has all of the above will certainly stand out from the rest!
