Taekwondo world champion and Olympic bronze medallist, Bianca Walkden is hoping to encourage 100,000 girls to take part in martial arts by 2020.
Walkden, from Liverpool, has won gold in 22 competitions, losing only 36 of her 167 fights.
She has been teaching classes in multiple Liverpool colleges to encourage others to join the sport she loves.
Still seen as predominantly male sports, martial arts aren’t just about violence, but confidence and strength.
Kensington taekwondo students Sarah Flynn and Natasha Aziz speak about why they think more girls should get involved in martial arts, and whether they think it is still a male dominant sport.
