    I don't know if it should be, but it's definitely part of my training program, at least during the fall, spring and summer. And I'd have no problem running away in a real self defense situation.

    I chose that I run regularly, but like I said, not it the winter.

    True. I think it should always be your first option. There are too many vairables in live situations to get involved in a conflict. Most people for some reason look to escalte a situation, instead of avoid it.

    I created this poll in response to this thread:
    http://www.bullshido.net/forums/showthread.php?t=29754

    Since running is advocated in so many self-defense scenarios -- particularly those involving multiple opponents -- I can't help but wonder what percentage of "victims" can actually outrun each and every bad guy involved.

    Further to that, what type of running best lends itself to self-defense scenarios? If you have a wicked sprint that can only carry you for a 100 meters before you run out of steam, that's no good. Conversly, even if you're marathon calibre, that moderate jog just isn't going to keep you ahead of a group of rabid attackers.

    So what do you do?

    I did all my running in high school track I occasionally run for exercise but thats about it. The thing you forget, is when running away you don't have to be faster tahn your attack just faster than the chump you are with. Thats why I always make my girlfriend wear really tall impractical heels.

    Hopefully 100 yards can get you into a situation where threr are other people, stores, or something safe.... If it is a long distance that you need to cover, hopefully a sprint, then running at 6mph will be enough to lose your attackers because they are not conditioned.

    I think an attacker would have to be really motivated (revenge, contract, or a vendetta against a particular victim) to give chase in many situations.

    And sometimes, as hopeless as it seems, you can just be SOL.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Damn this thread and it's damnable logic. Now I have to start running. I hate running.

    Assholes.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".
