    If anybody wants to study self defense and/or martial arts go for it! Keeping in shape is a great thing.

    But if you want to have a better chance of living or not being raped or kidnapped etc, learn to protect yourself with a firearm.

    I tell this story when people began to discuss martial arts training; I have a nephew who had studies martial arts for years. He earned his Black Belt and then a degree or two above BB. But, he is a douchebag know it all elitist socialist punk at heart.

    He was in excellent shape in his early years of being an adult male and I was a slightly overweight middle aged man. My nephew decided this was the day to show his skills to Uncle Slippy. He and I never really liked each other and he was ready to show me up with his years of martial arts experience.

    I took the little punk down in 2 seconds because I was bigger, stronger, faster and meaner.

    Maybe it would have been a different outcome if my nephew had trained to FIGHT like some of the MMA guys and didn't just train to get belts. But MMA is a different story and I doubt @Michelle is looking to start an MMA career.

    Take some classes to get or stay in shape and take some classes to learn to protect yourself from evil with a firearm is my suggestion.

    My brother is a martial arts guy. Tae kwon do mostly, but other disciplines as well. Ran his own Dojo at one time. He saw "Enter The Dragon" as a kid and has been involved ever since. His take is that some knowledge is almost as bad as no knowledge. If your going to do it, learn it and practice it. My take is some knowledge and command would be helpful, although I would not necessarily rely on it, particularly if your a woman. I have used some of my Brothers instruction when I was younger and it can be a surprise to someone not expecting it. I was a brawler in my day, I used everything at my disposal. That said, I can tell you there is always someone, bigger, faster, stronger, and tougher, then you. Carry a gun.

    Suppose the woman lives in a state that will not issue concealed weapons permits?

    I don't think anyone suggested it should be the only line of defense.

    We will not agree on this. I think it's unrealistically optimistic to think that an average woman could defend herself against an average man. Speaking as a woman and mother of three daughters. I wouldn't want my daughters' lives to depend on it.
    Speaking as a man who has known "average," trained women who could defend themselves from the "average" male, I know it isn't unrealistic, and the training doesn't take years and years.
    of training.

    From what you are saying, I am assuming you and your daughters are not trained. Are y'all safer by not being trained?

    Criminals are cowards who look for easy targets; they aren't looking to go toe to toe with someone who doesn't feel like being a victim.

    Sure, you might have a sidearm on you, but the attack might be in a manner that doesn't allow you to grab it. Now, if you had unarmed defense training in your "toolbox," you'd be in a better position to change the situation to where you would be able to draw.

    If someone is serious about self-defense, there is no reason to refuse unarmed self-defense training.

    Grrrrrrr.

    First, there are too many fkn laws that infringe.
    Second, there is NO law that supercedes our God-given right to Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    Re the question you posed? Carry anyway. Carry small, hidden and stay quiet about it.
    If you need it, use it. Saved life vs fine for illegal carry shouldn't be a real question.
    Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
