    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.


    - W.B. Yeats

      They way I see it, if you have been doing ANY MA for any amout of time and haven't come to the conclusion wither it works or not, chances are you have never gotten into a fight, so, maybe you don't need MA for "self defense", so maybe, it doesn't matter...

      ( Playing devils advocate here, as you know, I think ANY MA that doesn't work should be extinct).

          Then she will learn the ONE WAY that everyone learns and never forgets.
          By experience.
          No the the best way in terms of what can happen to her, but, as youknow, many people can only learn, the "hard way".

              So you see, in my view, fighting is the last in a long, unlikely chain of events. IMO, developing fighting skills only marginally increases my overall safety and is like a bad insurance policy. Spending thousands of dollars and countless hours of time training, simply for the reason that I MIGHT be attacked SOMEDAY by a person who wants to seriously hurt me, that I can't buy off, that I can't out run, that I can't out fight naturually, that won't stop until I maimed or dead, is an ineffcient use of time and resources.
              I agree and disagree. This is what works for you and I and a lot of other people on this website. Let's not forget the people who take self defense who truly need it who can't runaway etc.

              FBI Crime Statistics for Los Angeles 2002 (Crimes that were reported):

              Murder/Manslaughter - 654
              Forcible Rape - 1,415
              Robbery - 17,997
              Agravated Assault - 32,429
              Burglary - 25,374
              Theft - 79,813
              Motor Vehicle Theft - 34,110

              Didn't look at Detroit or Washington D.C. but I suspect they are comparible or worse.

              If somone is a MA school and they claim to teach self defense... they damn well better teach it and not short change people into a false sense of security. Truth in advertising... :5hot:

              To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence;
              Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without spilling your Guinness.

                Do we have a place where all of these McDojo sites are listed in one basket?
