    Probably Judo or Jiu-Jitsu (similar to Judo).Those forms of martial arts are used quite frequently in MMA type fighting.Boxing is also great for all-around body conditioning and self defense purposes.Judo is what I personally would recommend first and foremost.   [End]

    Best self-defence mechanism is to remove oneself from dangerous situation. If that is not possible, then one should strike fast and run. Sticking fingers to the eyes is the best approach, that gives you precious seconds before your attacker can start running after you. Do not try to beat men in strength, even if you are in good condition. That will only lead to bad places.   [End]

    You make large sweeping assumptions about carrying a gun. The way you make it sound, sooner or later it will come down to live and die by the gun if you have one. Not so. The vast majority of people who have, and carry, or just have, never pick up their weapon in defense, or anger. Most people go through lifetimes never having to resort to a gun. Because most who understand law and responsibility don’t or won’t. Frankly it is your kind of mentality that scares me as much as bad guys who do resort to guns, because it is vacant of reality and understanding but full of emotion.

    Cisco, I’ve always thought that feeling you need to be armed to protect yourself, actually makes you more of a victim. In order for this to be an effective strategy, a person would have to carry the weapon with them all the time, and the weapon would need to be loaded. Apart from the inconvienience of carrying a heavy gun around, there is, for me, the unacceptable danger that this weapon could find its way into the hands of a child, or be stolen and used against someone else. ... ...

    Good post, great points. There is a culture of fear surrounding being female, that somehow women are supposed to live in constant fear of attack.

  • use your charm :)   by motif  4y   2,160
     
    but in case you’re serious the best defense for women or other weak persons are these types of martial arts which uses force of the attacker against him. Aikido or Tai chi would be probably the best for you. I’d suggest also to think about stick (long or short) fighting classes - very effective even against the knife. ... Hard styles like karate, kung fu are really not for women IMHO unless you want to have lot’s of bruises, hardened hands, feet etc... ... ... Remember - the best style is fighting without the fighting.   [End]
