It’s my view too. OUR VIEW: Women need to know self-defense tactics.
This story is about a local church (Alabama) teaming up a local martial arts school to offer “self-defense” classes. Anything is better than nothing.
What self-defense means is up to the individual to figure out. I like firearms. But in my youth I studied both Karate and Judo. The first taught me to throw a punch, and kick, and some basic blocking. The second taught me to take a fall without hurting myself. Both taught me a little bit about fighting, and I also took some self-defense training (which is more street-fighting and less tournament-oriented.) I have also had pepper spray key-chains. There’s a baseball bat leaning up against my fireplace. But like I said, today I really value firearms for self-defense.
