The Way of the Bullet does beat the Way of the Empty Hand.
But I'm Canadian and can't carry a gun. I always have my hands and feet. Well, right now, anyway.

Personally I thinks this issue is very difficult... Because most people say they can defitintely kill someone but when it happen in real life they will get all scared and be unable to shoot the person. MA may be effective but it does have disadvantgae too. Not everyone can win a fight all of the time especially if they have no real life fighting experince. So... here is what I thinks should be done, the women should go to school that TEACH THEM SOME COMMON SENSE!! Such as following:
1. DON'T walk outside when it is dark by herself, always bring at least two other person.
2. If you have to go to somewhere at night time, park in well lit public place where everyone can see you (the closer to store or restaturant window, the better, closer to police, paramedic truck, or fire truck, even better, closer to the emergency service system, WAY BETTER!).
3. Install alarm in house or car so if something happen, you can push a button and get attention or call 911 automically.
4. Lock all of the cars door when you are driving.
5. ALWAYS wear shoes that you CAN run well in!
That is just a very few of simple example of best self defense. The rest about disabling the attacker somehow are BS! Why walk into trouble when you can STAY out of it? If the trouble follow you, just go into store or something and call the police. That will give you more chance to survive than trying to fights against the trouble yourself.

Another point is it is one thing to learn to shoot a target and another to shoot a person. The argument of fear for my life may not apply because it is that fear that would cause you to pause. I know that even with all the bravado a forum like this brings out shooting someone is tough. That pause could get them killed. As the saying goes " do not pull a gun unless you are ready to shoot the gun"
Of course this hurts, after all it is not basket weaving.----------------------------------------

Do you really train or just bore people on message boards and parties talking about it.

&gt;Hmmmm... I wonder if Asia knew about the .380 in his ankle holster?
Ankle holster in issue boots? Not likely. Besides it was an officer. He would need a Powerpoint slideshow to remind him it was their!
&gt;Another point is it is one thing to learn to shoot a target and another to shoot a person
Very true. I've seen it myself. Pple will freeze the first they take aim at another human.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
