    The article-

    Learn how to defend yourself in church

    By Margot Jackson

    The Church at Rancho Bernardo's Self Defense Ministry is offering free self defense classes for 8 weeks beginning Jan. 11th. Bring your whole family for some friendship, healthy exercise and fun while learning fundamental karate techniques in a safe and respectful non-violent atmosphere.

    You, your family, friends and kids over 6 can now all be savvy about self-defense simply by taking a free eight-week course at the Church of Rancho Bernardo. I'm happy to tell you that of all the things I might have done, a really great judo and ju-jitsu course was something I really did and I've always been glad spent that time.

    I had a Filipino instructor who looked like harmless accountant when he was out of class but he certainly knew how to defend himself. <font color="red">The one thing he stressed was that if someone came at you with a gun, the only possible defense was to fall on your knees and pray</font>, despite what you see in the movies.

    Ahh well all self defense seminars to me are crap. They teach you had to break someone's grip. This does not work when a woman is 100 lbs and her assailant is around 250+. It's just another money making scheme like Christianity... sigh


    Pfft... an asshole with a gun wants my wallet? Shoot me dickhead. He'd better believe I'm not going to be shot without a struggle and I'm at least going to break something of his. Then I'd take his f'n wallet. :qleft1:

    Well, self defense courses are what they are. As for the 100 lb woman Vs the 250 lb plus man, it is possible as long as the woman targets weak points on the attackers body and not necessarily concern herself with the grab itself. It's usually the state and confusion of fear that precipitates defeat. As an aside, my workout partner and his daughter are roughly these weight differentials.

    Not saying a woman couldn't defend herself, I'm just saying that I'd teach the woman to strike the guy repeatedly in weak areas, versus the trying to break the grip routine I see in usual self defense seminars.

    And yes, praying could be done, not by me, but that option is definitely open :-D

    I think a better way to put it is:

    You may as well pray, because it's as likely to work as any fucking retarded gun defense you've learned.

    I'd admit, I'd go for it. Freebie, why not? Worst thing could be the material is crap.

    Plus, they won't ask if you're actually a churchgoer, right? Equal opportunity for the agnostics. ;)

    ICY..... I never said anything about a handgun self defense. Think before you start foaming at the mouth.


    Zeddy- I noticed that too and I was thinking do they mean from Catholic Priests or what?

    My comment wasn't directed at you...but honestly I thought you were kidding. Do you actually think you could get to somebody's gun before they pulled the trigger? As far as the "handgun" thing goes, do you think it would be any different with a long gun? Is your wallet worth getting shot over?

    Yeah, my wallet's worth being shot over. It's my money and my possesions. If he wants it, he can come try to take it. There's no guarantee he wouldn't shoot me anyway. Two things, Never be blackmailed and never give in to some asshole who tries to mug you. They'll just come back for more. I'm ready to die, is he?

    The thing is, if he has a gun, you're more likely to die than he is.
