This just reaffirms my belief that gun people live lonely isolated existances. Does no one here have a wife, girlfriend or daughter? If there is an interest I am sure they will be willing to do a mens self defense class. Just call them and ask.

Luckily, all the females in my family are pretty tough! They could probably whoop me up like a red-headed step-child! What do you think I carry a gun for? a mugger? a murderer? I don't think so!
But seriously nonono90, thanks for the info. It is important that we, and our women, and our children take responsibility for our own protection within reason. The cops aren't always there, and the solution not always as P.C. as resorting to using a whistle to stop a rapist. I'll give out a swift kick in the balls before I bend over and hope he finishes quickly, or better yet, a 124gr. cor-bon!

I went there for a free Krav Maga class and am interested in taking the course but of course it's a little bit of a drive from Edmonds to Bellevue.

Like everything in my life, I've got no damn time to do what I want.

I'm sure you'd get a lot out of it if you went. Might be one of those things that could be worth the drive. Never now when someone is going to decide to attack or exploit.

The Krav Maga they teach there is good stuff. I've only been there for one class about 2 weeks ago, but I'll be going more in the future once work settles down and I finally get a condo. I'm you're looking to protect yourself in a very simple and highly effective manner Krav Maga is what you want. Also of interest to gun owners is their focus on weapon retention.

Krav Maga was developed in Israel for training soldiers in hand to hand combate. When developing they went for something that was simple, effective, and easy to learn.

Basically teaches fast/simple way to incapacitate an attacker. If you guys are really interested you should give the instructor patrick a call. He'll let you come out and participate in a class if you want to try it out.

But back to the threads point, you know any women who could use some self-defense skills (everyone in my opinion minus crazy people) let them know. You never know, maybe sometime down the road it saves them from being a victim.
