    Wait. Are you talking about your girlfriend or your daughter? I might have misread "my girl".

    If it was a grappling class I kind of hope it was his girlfriend. I mean, the North-South position can be slightly suggestive...

    (Indeed.)

    I was mainly asking because it sounds like you're asking "where should I put my girl"...which is sort of the tone one might use for a child, as opposed to an adult.

    Do yourself, your girl, and the world a favor and put the kid in BJJ or Judo. It's going to be a rare case when a smaller woman can outstrike a larger man (Yes, I know there are always exceptions to every rule). However, a lighter person can use leverage and grappling principles to their advantage and fend off/submit a much larger opponent. How do I know this? It happens to me almost every single day. People way way way smaller than me kick my ass in class on a daily basis.

    I definitely think that MA can help women, especially grappling disciplines with a competitive element. My reasoning here is that this stuff will not only develop physical skills and conditioning that can be useful in fighting off an aggressor but that it is also likely to improve on the mental qualities that will be needed to actually make use of these skills if the **** does indeed hit the fan.

    I found this post which gives a pretty good picture of what I mean. The poster here mentions how men have their aggressive tendencies socialized out of them as they grow up and as far as I can see this applies even more to women (I vaguely remember JKDChick making a post somewhere here on bullshido describing this as women being brainwashed into behaving a certain way, I think that is a very good description).

    I would agree with the grappling/BJJ to a point. However, stand-up skills should not be overlooked for a self-defense curriculum. Often simple striking can be taught, and drilled, effectively.

    I would recommend the following styles/drills:
    - Boxing (for strikes/clinch)
    - "Straight Blast" (repeated strikes w/ the ball of the hand to the nose/forehead/face of the attacker)
    - This causes disorientation in an attacker and can be employed effectively due to the fact that it requires little accuracy.
    - Judo (for throws/locks)

    I would have to caution against grappling due to the fact that a smaller woman against a larger attacker may be in greater danger on the ground then on her feet. I would suggest most grappling be focused on escapes not submissions.

    Somewhat off-topic, but WG, those links in your sig are great. (I was going to PM you saying so, but the PM link doesn't seem to work.) I think that's probably the best martial arts practice for kids. If only every "Kids' Program" in the country were replaced with that.
