Unless you can Kung-Fu your way out of a bullet, don't waste your time. Take up Jogging, it's more useful to outrun your enemy.

Only I, the Hamburger Helper hand can kung-fu my way out of a bullet. One time I was too slow and lost a finger.

You can't outrun a bullet. The average 9mm bullet travels 1100 feet per second! By comparison, Hussein Bolt, the fastest man alive, can only run 28 miles per hour.

well talking of self defence classes,it is a good thing because you never can not tell when you might have a need for it if you are not trained you might need to defend yourself

I think at the very least, a self-defense course should be taken by all young people, girls especially. it was a great confidence boost for this girl.

Yes, and I practice regularly in several martial arts. Training in martial arts is the greatest decision I have ever made. It made me more confident, courageous, stronger, faster, more flexible, healthier, and most importantly happier. It is the greatest experience possible I think.

As a rape victim, I can advocate - learn self-defense! I wish I had before it happened (no offense to the resulting child!<3) and I enrolled my son as soon as he was old enough!

Learned to shoot, does that count as a self defense class. I have never had to fire it at anyone thank goodness ,but the site of it did come in handy once in a bad situation.

I personally don't think that a gun can be used in every situation. It can definitely scare people away though, but there are some crazy people out there that it won't scare away and you'd probably have to shoot... and then there are other times where the gun might not be available.

YES, a gum can be used in any situation and is the most effective form of self-defense IF you actually know how to shoot, keep up on target practice and have a personal gun permit (keep it legal). A bullet travels at the speed of seconds, A cop travels at the speed of up to a 20 min. response time.

I'm not against carrying a gun. I was a cop for 8 years. But unless you are walking around with it pointed in front of you at all times, it's probably not going to do you much good. By the time you get to that gun you have already been attacked and it's too late.

I know this from the dozens of videos they showed us in the police academy. By the time you can unholster your gun an attacker can be on top of you stabbing you to death.

Guns are better used when you have more than an arm's length between you and someone else. If you are too close to someone they can literally grab the gun out of your hand before you can shoot them and then your gun is being used on you. Even with a fast response time it just takes too long for the information to process in your brain that they are moving plus react plus have that reaction signal sent from your brain to your muscles.

Don't need it,I can learn on my own,or just go for their eyes,"nuts",possibly their gut.You could also squeeze their dimples.Anyway unless you live in the ghettos or "the hood",it's not necesary.
