    Personal Defense?

    I'm just wanting to know what others are doing to train and prep themselves when it's comes to hand to hand or defense against a weapon. What fighting styles are more popular? How often is anyone training in hand to hand? And methods of your conditioning.

    What are people doing with knife fighting such as training and knowledge enhancement?

    I personally believe most people would do better using the time to get their weight down and getting into shape before they consider hand to hand training. Most people who take some type of martial art or hand to hand combat training only take enough to give them a false sense of security. But yes if you are in good shape and have the time go ahead and take it. Just remember any one that is attacking you will probably be armed it is best to not trust anyone you don't know and keep at a distance and if the SHTF don't go out unarmed and preferably with other that are armed. I remember watching one show where a man was training his 10 year old daughter in self defense, where he should teach her to run, scream, scratch, throw things, anything to get away not have her have some false sense that she can fight off a man 3 times her weight.

    If you need hand to hand or a knife you already messed up and let them get to close.
    You get in that kind of a fight you already lost.
    Good physical condition at any age is a plus the better shape you in the longer you can run that few extra yards you can keep moving may save your life.

    So true. I'm just to old to but up with the bull of hand to hand combat. I've said too much already.

    Best form of self defense anyone could have. Get a CCW permit and train with your weapon.

    In self defense, distance is your friend. First layer, a nice bolt action rifle. Second layer, medium distance rifle. Third a handgun. In SHTF senario I ain't lookin' for trouble, I will avoid it at all costs.jmho

    Train with your firearms as much as you can. The more you train the better you will become. A person has got to know his or her limitations and perpare for what you good at.
