Asgarda are a subculture full of empowered women who come from Ukraine where women are often forced into the sex trafficing industry or feel like second class citizens to men. One hundred and fifty young women are a part of the movement which is run by 30 year old Katerina Tarnouska. Their tribe live in the Carpathian Mountains and practise tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology. The Asgarda train in martial arts, taught by former Soviet karate master, Volodymyr Stepanovytch, and learn life skills and sciences in order to become ideal women. The Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology were a group of women who cut off one of their breasts so they could use their bow and arrows more efectively. They went to war but were defeated and had to marry Scythian men and live a normal married life. The Asgarda are modern versions of the greek mythological tribe.
