    It should be taught to all kids in school from kindergarten on. There would be a lot less assaults of all kinds going on. I have to admit I love watching the woman defend herself against attack.

    A few thoughts on this:

    The woman, even though this is set at a gym, is wearing heels. Sheesh.

    Many of these moves are dependent on the woman being in good shape. The best self defense moves are ones that could be done by an elderly lady or a child, and still be effective.

    And in this video, the woman is “fighting fair”. That’s the last thing a woman in her position should be doing. They are avoiding showing eye-gouging, kicks to the groin, or standing on his throat once you’ve knocked him down, which is what she ought to be doing. And if she’s going to wear heels, she should be using them as a weapon!

    • I thought her whole getup was funny, because when I took self-defense class forty-plus years ago, all of us — teacher and students, as well as the male volunteers we practiced on — wore sweats and were shoeless. I wonder if her rationale was that women should practice their moves while dressed in their everyday clothes, such as they might be wearing when an assault might occur, and for some women (although not for me) that would include being in heels. And I agree, if a woman is wearing heels when she’s assaulted, by all means she should use them as a weapon!
