Answer: No but it is okay to hurt them bad enough to get away from them, never should it be okay to kill a human by self-defense. They are a living being. Would you want to be killed by self-defense of someone else. I don't think do. Your family and friends would miss you. Think of a better wa…y besides murder but if you have no other option then that's okay in a way to murder them if you have no other way (MORE)
Sure, you can be arrested for murder, if the stabbed person dies. You can also be tried for murder. "Self Defense" is a legal defense to a criminal charge of murder. Self Defense is a defense to a criminal charge and in a criminal trial. It has nothing to do with being arrested.
There are varying opinions on what ammo is the "best." Generally speaking, the best ammo to use is whichever ammo is the most reliable in your particular gun.
there are limits on how far You can go on the street, you're under at least some obligation to try to avoid violence to retreat at least Part way, if Possible, before striking a blow in self-defense. But this is a fine legal line. You become the aggressor when you use defensive force that is clearly… excessive. For example, you can't respond to the threat of a clenched fist with a gun and quick shooting, nor can you beat a man severely with a cane simply because he shoved You on the sidewalk. Self-defense is a defense to certain criminal charges as well as to some civil claims.. A person claiming self-defense must prove at trial that the self-defense was justified. Generally a person may use reasonable force when it appears reasonably necessary to prevent an impending injury. A person using force in self-defense should use only so much force as is required to repel the attack. Nondeadly force can be used to repel either a nondeadly attack or a deadly attack. Deadly Force may be used to fend off an attacker who is using deadly force but may not be used to repel an attacker who is not using deadly force. (MORE)

Most martial arts are considered a male activity, however there is one martial art that was invented by a woman. It is called Wing Chun , and its probably the fastest, most skillful, and most effective for self defense. Most women will be concerned that they do not have much power behind their s…trikes, but in Wing Chun one can generate maximum force from small range with nearly no muscular power. (MORE)
First lets open with Exodus 21 (NKJV) . The Law Concerning Violence. 12 "He who strikes a man so that he dies shall surely be put to death. 13 However, if he did not lie in wait, but God delivered him into his hand, then I will appoint for you a place where he may flee. 14 "But if a man… acts with premeditation against his neighbor, to kill him by treachery, you shall take him from My altar, that he may die. 15 "And he who strikes his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. 16 "He who kidnaps a man and sells him, or if he is found in his hand, shall surely be put to death. 17 "And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. 18 "If men contend with each other, and one strikes the other with a stone or with his fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, 19 if he rises again and walks about outside with his staff, then he who struck him shall be acquitted. He shall only pay for the loss of his time, and shall provide for him to be thoroughly healed. 20 "And if a man beats his male or female servant with a rod, so that he dies under his hand, he shall surely be punished. 21 Notwithstanding, if he remains alive a day or two, he shall not be punished; for he is his property. 22 "If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman's husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. 23 But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24 eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25 burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe. 26 "If a man strikes the eye of his male or female servant, and destroys it, he shall let him go free for the sake of his eye. 27 And if he knocks out the tooth of his male or female servant, he shall let him go free for the sake of his tooth. Our Lord would be contradicting Himself or Scripture by saying that one must never defend himself or his family in any circumstance. The Word of God does allow and encourage self-defense. In the Scriptures we do not find God encouraging His people to be either "hawks" or "doves" when dealing with self-defense. They are just to be reasonable.. In the early part of redemptive history we see the patriarch Abraham mustering one of the first armed militias (without the approval of any state or federal government, I would note) to rescue his kidnapped nephew, Lot (Gen. 14:21ff). This was not revenge but was purely defending and protecting (here rescuing) a family member and retrieving property. This can be labeled as a biblical example of self-defense. It is interesting to note that later "[t]he Israelite army was a militia army which came to battle with each man bearing his own weapons - from the time of Moses, through the Judges, and beyond." (Pratt; ibid.). In Exodus 20:13, part of the Ten Commandments, we read " Thou shalt not kill " (KJV). The accurate English translation would be " You shall not murder ". This commandment does NOT forbid the taking of life under certain circumstances. A good interpretation what this commandment does mean (requires of us) is found in the Westminster Larger Catechism:. What Are the Duties Required In the Sixth Commandment? Answer: The duties required in the sixth commandment are, all careful studies, and lawful endeavors, to preserve the life of ourselves and others by resisting all thoughts and purposes, subduing all passions, and avoiding, all occasions, temptations, and practices, which tend to the unjust taking away the life of any; by just defense thereof against violence , patient bearing of the hand of God, quietness of mind, cheerfulness of spirit; a sober use of meat, drink, physical, sleep, labour, and recreations; by charitable thoughts, love, compassion, meekness, gentleness, kindness; peaceable, mild and courteous speeches and behaviour; forbearance, readiness to be reconciled, patient bearing and forgiving of injuries, and requiting good for evil; comforting and succouring the distressed, and protecting and defending the innocent. (Q. &A. 135; emphasis added).. Note that the Catechism says to "preserve the life of ourselves and others by resisting â¦" (emphasis added). The writers of this fine document understood the necessity, at times, to use defensive measures to aid others when necessary. They also say "by just defense thereof against violence." This is a call for the legitimate use of self-defense. The Scriptures they use to defend (no pun intended) this statement are Ps. 82:4; Prov. 24:11-12; 1 Sam. 14:45.. The underlying argument for gun control seems to be that the availability of guns causes crime. By extension, the availability of any weapon would have to be viewed as a cause of crime. What does the Bible say about such a view?. Perhaps we should start at the beginning, or at least very close to the beginning -- in Genesis 4. In this chapter we read about the first murder. Cain had offered an unacceptable sacrifice, and Cain was upset that God insisted that he do the right thing. In other words, Cain was peeved that he could not do his own thing.. Cain decided to kill his brother rather than get right with God. There were no guns available, although there may well have been a knife. Whether it was a knife or a rock, the Bible does not say. The point is, the evil in Cain's heart was the cause of the murder, not the availability of the murder weapon.. God's response was not to ban rocks or knives, or whatever, but to banish the murderer. Later (see Genesis 9:5-6) God instituted capital punishment, but said not a word about banning weapons.. Did Christ Teach Pacifism? . Many people, Christians included, assume that Christ taught pacifism. They cite Matthew 5:38-39 for their proof. In this verse Christ said: "You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.". The Sermon on the Mount from which this passage is taken deals with righteous personal conduct. In our passage, Christ is clearing up a confusion that had led people to think that conduct proper for the civil government -- that is, taking vengeance -- was also proper for an individual.. Even the choice of words used by Christ indicates that He was addressing a confusion, or a distortion, that was commonplace. Several times in the rest of the Sermon on the Mount Christ used this same "you have heard it said" figure of speech to straighten out misunderstandings or falsehoods being taught by the religious leaders of the times.. Contrast this to Christ's use of the phrase "it is written" when He was appealing to the Scriptures for authority (for example, see Matthew 4 where on three occasions during His temptation by the devil, Christ answered each one of the devil's lies or misquotes from Scripture with the words: "it is written").. To further underscore the point that Christ was correcting the religious leaders on their teaching that "an eye for an eye" applies to private revenge, consider that in the same Sermon, Christ strongly condemned false teaching: "Whoever therefore breaks one of the commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven..." (Matthew 5:19). Clearly, then, Christ was not teaching something different about self defense than is taught elsewhere in the Bible. Otherwise, He would be contradicting Himself for He would now be teaching men to break one of the commandments.. The reference to "an eye for an eye" was taken from Exodus 21:24-25 which deals with how the magistrate must deal with a crime. Namely, the punishment must fit the crime. The religious leaders of Christ's day had twisted a passage that applied to the government and misused it as a principle of personal revenge.. The Bible distinguishes clearly between the duties of the civil magistrate (the government) and the duties of an individual. Namely, God has delegated to the civil magistrate the administration of justice. Individuals have the responsibility of protecting their lives from attackers. Christ was referring to this distinction in the Matthew 5 passage. Let us now examine in some detail what the Scriptures say about the roles of government and of individuals.. Both the Old and New Testaments teach individual self defense, even if it means taking the assailant's life in certain circumstances.. Self-Defense in the Old Testament . Exodus 22:2-3 tells us "If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed. If the sun has risen on him, there shall be guilt for his bloodshed. He should make full restitution; if he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.". One conclusion which can be drawn from this is that a threat to our life is to be met with lethal force. After the sun has risen seems to refer to a different judgment than the one permitted at night. At night it is more difficult to discern whether the intruder is a thief or a murderer. Furthermore, the nighttime makes it more difficult to defend oneself and to avoid killing the thief at the same time. During the daytime, it better be clear that one's life was in danger, otherwise, defense becomes vengeance, and that belongs in the hand of the magistrate.. In Proverbs 25:26 we read that "A righteous man who falters before the wicked is like a murky spring and a polluted well." Certainly, we would be faltering before the wicked if we chose to be unarmed and unable to resist an assailant who might be threatening our life. In other words, we have no right to hand over our life which is a gift from God to the unrighteous. It is a serious mistake to equate a civilized society with one in which the decent people are doormats for the evil to trample on.. Trusting God . Another question asked by Christians is "Doesn't having a gun imply a lack of trust that God will take care of us?". Indeed, God will take care of us. He has also told us that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments. (John 14:15). Those who trust God work for a living, knowing that 1 Timothy 5:8 tells us "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." For a man not to work, yet expect to eat because he was "trusting God" would actually be to defy God.. King David wrote in Psalm 46:1 that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. This did not conflict with praising the God "Who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle" (Psalm 144:1).. The doctrine of Scripture is that we prepare and work, but we trust the outcome to God.. Those who trust God should also make adequate provision for their own defense even as we are instructed in the passages cited above. For a man to refuse to provide adequately for his and his family's defense would be to defy God.. There is an additional concern to taking the position that "I don't need to arm myself. God will protect me.". At one point, when Satan was tempting Jesus in the wilderness, he challenged Jesus to throw himself off the top of the temple. Satan reasoned that God's angels would protect him. Jesus responded: "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God'" (Matthew 4:7).. It may seem pious to say that one is trusting in God for protection, and we all must, but it is tempting God if we do not take the measures that He has laid out for us in the Bible.. Role of Government . The Bible records the first murder in Genesis 4 when Cain killed his brother Abel. God's response was not to register rocks or impose a background check on those getting a plough, or whatever it was that Cain used to kill his brother. Instead, God dealt with the criminal. Ever since Noah the penalty for murder has been death.. We see the refusal to accept this principle that God has given us from the very beginning. Today we see a growing acceptance of the idea that checking the criminal backgrounds of gun buyers will lessen crime but we should seldom execute those who are guilty of murder.. In Matthew 15 (and in Mark 7) Christ accused the religious leaders of the day of also opposing the execution of those deserving of death -- rebellious teenagers. They had replaced the commandments of God with their own traditions. God has never been interested in controlling the means of violence. He has always made it a point to punish, and where possible, restore (as with restitution and excommunication) the wrongdoer. Control of individuals is to be left to self-government. Punishment of individuals by the civil government is to be carried out when self-government breaks down.. Man's wisdom today has been to declare gun free school zones which are invaded by gun-toting teenage terrorists whom we refuse to execute. We seem to have learned little from Christ's rebuke of the Pharisees.. Nowhere in the Bible does God make any provision for dealing with the instruments of crime. He always focuses on the consequences for an individual of his actions. Heaven and hell only applies to people, not to things. Responsibility only pertains to people, not to things. If this principle, which was deeply embedded in the common law, still pertained today lawsuits against gun manufacturers would be thrown out unless the product malfunctioned.. Responsibility rightly includes being liable for monetary damages if a firearm is left in a grossly negligent fashion so that an ignorant child gets the gun and misuses it. The solution is not to require that trigger locks be used on a gun to avoid being subject to such a law suit. Some might argue that this is nothing more than an application of the Biblical requirement that a railing be placed around the flat rooftop of a house where people might congregate. But trigger locks are to be used with unloaded guns which would be the same as requiring a railing around a pitched roof where people do not congregate.. Surely in protecting against accidents we cannot end up making ourselves more vulnerable to criminal attack, which is what a trigger lock does if it is in use on the firearm intended for self protection.. The firearm that is kept for self defense should be available in an emergency. Rooftop railings have no correspondence to the need for instant access to a gun. On the other hand, guns that are not intended for immediate use should be kept secured as a reasonable precaution. But to make the owner criminally or monetarily liable for another's misuse violates a basic commandment of Scripture: "the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself" (Ezekiel 18:20b).. Self Defense Versus Vengeance . Resisting an attack is not to be confused with taking vengeance which is the exclusive domain of God (Romans 12:19). This has been delegated to the civil magistrate, who, as we read in Romans 13:4, "is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.". Private vengeance means one would stalk down a criminal after one's life is no longer in danger as opposed to defending oneself during an attack. It is this very point that has been confused by Christian pacifists who would take the passage in the Sermon on the Mount about turning the other cheek (which prohibits private vengeance) into a command to falter before the wicked.. Let us consider also that the Sixth Commandment tells us "Thou shall not murder." In the chapters following, God gave to Moses many of the situations which require a death penalty. God clearly has not told us never to kill. He has told us not to murder, which means we are not to take an innocent life. Consider also that the civil magistrate is to be a terror to those who practice evil. This passage does not in any way imply that the role of law enforcement is to prevent crimes or to protect individuals from criminals. The magistrate is a minister to serve as "an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil" (Romans 13:4).. This point is reflected in the legal doctrine of the United States. Repeatedly, courts have held that the government has no responsibility to provide individual security. One case ( Bowers v. DeVito ) put it this way: "there is no constitutional right to be protected by the state against being murdered.". Self Defense in the New Testament . The Christian pacifist may try to argue that God has changed His mind from the time that He gave Moses the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai. Perhaps they would want us to think that Christ canceled out the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20 or the provision for justifiably killing a thief in Exodus 22. But the writer of Hebrews makes it clear that this cannot be, because "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). In the Old Testament, the prophet Malachi records God's words this way: "For I am the Lord, I do not change" (Malachi 3:6).. Paul was referring to the unchangeability of God's Word when he wrote to Timothy that "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Clearly, Paul viewed all Scripture, including the Old Testament, as useful for training Christians in every area of life.. We must also consider what Christ told his disciples in his last hours with them: "...But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a sack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one" (Luke 22:36). Keep in mind that the sword was the finest offensive weapon available to an individual soldier -- the equivalent then of a military rifle today.. The Christian pacifist will likely object at this point that only a few hours later, Christ rebuked Peter who used a sword to cut off the ear of Malchus, a servant of the high priest in the company of a detachment of troops. Let us read what Christ said to Peter in Matthew 26:52-54:. Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels? How then could the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must happen thus?. In the companion passage in John 18, Jesus tells Peter to put his sword away and told him that He had to drink the cup that His Father had given Him. It was not the first time that Christ had to explain to the disciples why He had come to earth. To fulfill the Scriptures, the Son of God had to die for the sin of man since man was incapable of paying for his own sin apart from going to hell. Christ could have saved His life, but then believers would have lost their lives forever in hell. These things only became clear to the disciples after Christ had died and been raised from the dead and the Spirit had come into the world at Pentecost (see John 14:26).. While Christ told Peter to "put your sword in its place" He clearly did not say get rid of it forever. That would have contradicted what he had told the disciples only hours before. Peter's sword was to protect his own mortal life from danger. His sword was not needed to protect the Creator of the universe and the King of kings.. Years after Pentecost, Paul wrote in a letter to Timothy "But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever" (1 Tim. 5:8). This passage applies to our subject because it would be absurd to buy a house, furnish it with food and facilities for one's family, and then refuse to install locks and provide the means to protect the family and the property. Likewise it would be absurd not to take, if necessary, the life of a night-time thief to protect the members of the family (Exodus 22:2-3).. A related, and even broader concept, is found in the parable of the Good Samaritan. Christ had referred to the Old Testament summary of all the laws of the Bible into two great commandments: "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and your neighbor as yourself'" (Luke 10:27). When asked who was a neighbor, Christ related the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37). It was the Good Samaritan who took care of the mugging victim who was a neighbor to the victim. The others who walked by and ignored the victim's plight were not acting as neighbors to him.. In the light of all we have seen the Scriptures teach to this point, can we argue that if we were able to save another's life from an attacker by shooting the attacker with our gun that we should "turn the other cheek instead?" The Bible speaks of no such right. It only speaks of our responsibilities in the face of an attack -- as individual creatures made by God, as householders or as neighbors.. National Blessings and Cursings . The Old Testament also tells us a great deal about the positive relationship between righteousness, which exalts a nation, and self defense. It makes clear that in times of national rebellion against the Lord God, the rulers of the nation will reflect the spiritual degradation of the people and the result is a denial of God's commandments, an arrogance of officialdom, disarmament and oppression.. For example, the people of Israel were oppressed during the time of the rule of the Judges. This occurred every time the people apostatized. Judges 5:8 tells us that, "They chose new gods; then there was war in the gates; not a shield or spear was seen among forty thousand in Israel.". Consider Israel under Saul: The first book of Samuel tells of the turning away of Israel from God. The people did not want to be governed by God; they wanted to be ruled by a king like the pagan, God-hating nations around them. Samuel warned the people what they were getting into -- the curses that would be upon them -- if they persisted in raising up a king over themselves and their families. Included in those curses was the raising up of a standing, professional army which would take their sons and their daughters for aggressive wars (I Samuel 8:11).. This curse is not unknown in the United States. Saul carried out all the judgments that Samuel had warned the people about. His build up of a standing army has been repeated in the U.S., and not just in terms of the military, but also the 650,000 full-time police officers from all levels of government.. Saul was the king the Israelites wanted and got. He was beautiful in the eyes of the world but a disaster in the eyes of the Lord. Saul did not trust God. He rebelled against His form of sacrifice unto the Lord. Saul put himself above God. He was impatient. He refused to wait for Samuel because God's way was taking too long. Saul went ahead and performed the sacrifice himself, thus violating God's commandment (and, incidentally, also violating the God-ordained separation of duties of church and state!). Thus was the kingdom lost to Saul. And, it was under him that the Philistines were able to defeat the Jews and put them into bondage. So great was the bondage exerted by the Philistines that "Now there was no blacksmith to be found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, 'Lest the Hebrews make them swords or spears.' But all the Israelites went down to the Philistines to sharpen each man's plowshare, his mattock, his ax, and his sickle;...So it came about, on the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people who were with Saul and Jonathan..." (1 Samuel 13:19-20; 22-23).. Today, the same goals of the Philistines would be carried out by an oppressor who would ban gunsmiths from the land. The sword of today is the handgun, rifle or shotgun. The sword control of the Philistines is today's gun control of those governments that do not trust their people with guns.. It is important to understand that what happened to the Jews at the time of Saul was not unexpected according to the sanctions spelled out by God in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28. In the first verses of those chapters, blessings are promised to a nation that keeps God's laws. In the latter parts of those chapters, the curses are spelled out for a nation that comes under judgment for its rebellion against God. Deuteronomy 28:47-48 helps us understand the reason for Israel's oppression by the Philistines during Saul's reign:. Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of all things; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.. The Bible provides examples of God's blessing upon Israel for its faithfulness. These blessings included a strong national defense coupled with peace. A clear example occurred during the reign of Jehoshaphat. 2 Chronicles 17 tells of how Jehoshaphat led Israel back to faithfulness to God which included a strong national defense. The result: "And the fear of the Lord fell on all the kingdoms of the lands that were around Judah, so that they did not make war against Jehoshaphat" (2 Chronicles 17:10).. The Israelite army was a militia army (Numbers 1:3, ff.) which came to battle with each man bearing his own weapons -- from the time of Moses, through the Judges, and beyond. When threatened by the Midianites, for example, "Moses spoke to the people , saying, 'Arm some of yourselves for the war, and let them go against the Midianites to take vengeance for the Lord on Midian'" (Numbers 31:3). Again, to demonstrate the Biblical heritage of individuals bearing and keeping arms, during David's time in the wilderness avoiding capture by Saul, "David said to his men, 'Every man gird on his sword.' So every man girded on his sword, and David also girded on his sword" (1 Samuel 25:13).. Finally, consider Nehemiah and those who rebuilt the gates and walls of Jerusalem. They were both builders and defenders, each man -- each servant -- armed with his own weapon:. Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon. Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built (Nehemiah 4:17-18).. Conclusion . The wisdom of the framers of the Constitution is consistent with the lessons of the Bible. Instruments of defense should be dispersed throughout the nation, not concentrated in the hands of the central government. In a godly country, righteousness governs each man through the Holy Spirit working within. The government has no cause to want a monopoly of force; the government that desires such a monopoly is a threat to the lives, liberty and property of its citizens.. The assumption that only danger can result from people carrying guns is used to justify the government's having a monopoly of force. The notion that the people cannot be trusted to keep and bear their own arms informs us that ours, like the time of Solomon, may be one of great riches but is also a time of peril to free people. If Christ is not our King, we shall have a dictator to rule over us, just as Samuel warned.. For those who think that God treated Israel differently from the way He will treat us today, please consider what God told the prophet Malachi: "For I am the Lord, I do not change..." (Malachi 3:6).

No. NOT murder. But the Criminal Code of Canada states that any person can use deadly force only to prevent the death or grevious bodily harm to themselves or any other individual.

In the UK is it illegal to use pepper spray as self defence on an intruder in your own home or property?
The police advice in the UK is that you can use 'appropriate methods' to defend yourself and your property. You do not have to think hard about the appropriateness in the heat of the moment, but the force must not be excessive. In those terms, it is up to you to think whether it is good to carry a p…epper spray on the off-chance that you may be attacked. You might have to justify in court your action of using the pepper spray. (MORE)
Because the average response time for the police to arrive at the scene of a crime will usually allow them to find you dead or seriously injured. It's not their fault, just a fact.
They ram their heads into the attacker, this works best in groups when the attacker is confused. Swimming away works too.
If what you're asking is about hormones, then that would be adrenaline. You'll get stronger, faster, and, in some cases, tunnel vision.
If you believe that it is right to defend yourself the choice of tool should not be important. Guns are a defensive tool that tends to work well.
It depends on where you are. In the US, almost anything can be done if you get the right judge and a decent lawyer. Elsewhere, firearms are for the most part illegal anyway and using one on another person - no matter what the reason - is very much not permitted.
depending on the type of truncheon yes you can be arrested for carrying them as they are a dangerous weapon. Many countries have banned certain types of truncheons (or clubs/nightsticks as they are also known as). My suggestion would be not to carry a truncheon, and if you feel the need too, keep it… in the bottom of your bag (if you are carrying a bag). Or learn to use your belt as a defensive weapon, this has worked for me in the past (especially if you have a belt with a large metal buckle on it). (MORE)

Regarding self defense, the 6.35 (.25 caliber) is one of the least effective cartridges available. The average muzzle engery ratings are in the 65 foot pound range, which is actually less than some .22 shorts.
What is "best" is entirely a matter of opinion. What is effective, and works for self defense is available in many forms and various system of Martial Art from all over the world. What makes it effective to a great degree depends on the feasibility of the technical applications, and proposed tactics…, as well as the skill of the individual. This will be determined by the competency of the teacher, as well as the dedication, and successful application of the individual's abilities. Most experts would probably agree that the best type of self defense is avoidance. These means that you keep alert to potential trouble, and avoid situations and locations that would likely be hazardous. It also means that you check your attitude, keep your mouth shut, and avoid getting into fights whenever possible. Many people who get into fights went looking for trouble in the first place. Another good aspect of self defense is being physically fit. You don't have to be the strongest person in the fight, but having good stamina, and toned muscles helps to apply techniques with better skill, accuracy, and self control. Perhaps the best advice is simply to look around at various schools of self defense, and find one that has a good reputation, qualified instructors, good quality students, and that you are comfortable at where you can learn, and are going to stick with it for a long time. While a person could study the practice of using weapons for self defense (mace, pepper spray, sticks, knives, guns, etc), knowledge of how to use your body as a weapon is something that is always available, and no one can take away and use against you. The three main areas of unarmed combat include skills of 1. striking, 2. Throwing, and 3. Grappling. Some systems have a preference and priority for long range striking, others go for close quarter strikes, throws and holds, while some systems focus almost entirely on ground-fighting and grappling. The choice is yours. (MORE)
It's proven itself time and again in street brawls since the sport's revival in the early 1700's in Great Britain. The modern sport of boxing, was the only "self-defense" smaller kids had against bullies prior to the 1970's with the rise of the more "exotic" fighting arts (like Karate). In fact, a g…ood 90% of World War II era males, know how to box, regardless of ethnic background. Is boxing effective? Put it this way; in East Los Angeles, boxing gyms, and people who go there on a regular basis are avoided by street punks and cholos for a reason. In fact, in a bad neighborhood of a large city, the safest place in said bad neighborhood is likely the area around a boxing gym; even gang members don't mess with them. There are always stupid punks who try, but 90% of the time they almost always get beat up, and badly too. Street kids, gang members have their reputation for being very dangerous street brawlers, but, believe it or not even they will avoid provoking a boxing gym. (MORE)
Quick answer, No. In UK law you can only use equal to reasonable force in self defence. In other words, enough to make sure both you and they don't get hurt further. You do however have the right to detain some one for assault in the UK until police arrive on scene, however using and form of fir…earm will most likely constitute as assault with a weapon. (MORE)
Opinions will vary on this one, and what characteristics you want to emphasize on will affect the ideal round for you. Personally, I'm partial to the Speer Gold Dot hollow points.

The best adaptation for escaping predators by self defense is thespray of a skunk. I don't know any predators that don't give upwhen sprayed, with the possible exception of a great horned owl.There is evidence that skunks can't spray when picked up and thisis what owls do.
No, because Self- Defense is about defending your self againstsomeone that could harm you or hurt you.
self defence is something to keep people safe, if it will benefityour safety then you should be able to teach a class on it, if youknow how.
You can be charged with murder if you kill someone in self defense. You killed someone else. That person is dead. The reason could be first degree murder, second degree murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, or self defense. In each case, the other person is dead and you killed hi…m. The only difference is your intent. You can be charged with murder in any case. The trial discovers your intent. A number of murder cases have been reversed on appeal because it was obvious to the appeal court that the prisoner acted in self defense. Some prosecutors or cops will not believe you. (MORE)
Whenever it is needed and you get the chance. If you are in a spot that you think this is needed, don't hesitate or do it half way.
That will require a miracle- or a change of government. Canadian law does not recognize defense as justification for a handgun license. The laws are far too broad a subject to cover here, but this link does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Canada
The samurai used more than one martial art for unarmed combat. Three of the primary ones were Jui Jitsu, Akaido, and Judo.
KARATE, cause it is more easily to kick someone, than throwing him on the ground.
In one on one unarmed situations JUDO In multiple opponents or if your attacker has a weapon, KARATE But, just for your information, there is no better martial art than others, it really depends on the skill.
More than likely it is perfectly legal to do so. To carry concealed you would undoubtedly need a license of some sort, however the last timed I checked open carry was legal. Check with local law enforcement for up-to-date information before doing so.
Crocodiles have many defense mechanisms, for which they are known. Listed below are a few. . The ability to bite. Crocodiles have more bite power than any other animal, exceeding 5000 psi. . The death roll - in which a crocodile bites down, hold on, and then rapidly spins its body. This usually ca…uses limbs to be torn or the victim to become weak. . Hide-and-strike: the crocodile hides in the water and when a target passes it jumps out and strikes. Crocodiles are responsible for more attacks than any other animals on earth, so it helps to follow crocodile precautions at all times. (MORE)
It all depends on many factors and you will find someone to argue that "their" form of martial arts is the best for self-defense. Many martial art's studios are training for competition rather than reality-based self-defense. Personally, I train in Krav Maga since it is not designed for competition…, but to address real threats, multiple attacker scenarios, gun, knife and stick defenses, and a training regimen that attempts to create circumstances that address reality based threats. As always you need to evaluate specific training facilities for your needs and ask the right questions. I guarantee you that any studio you go into will tell you that their method is a great solution for your self-defense needs. (MORE)
Well it might depend on the school's instructor but usually physical violence or just being involved in that has a high chance of demoting you.
The word "Aikido" literally translates as "the way of peace & harmony". This form of self-defence was developed in Japan after the Second World War when the Americans banned many martial arts. If you follow up your internet search you should be able to find a club in your area. You will be abl…e to learn to avoid attacks from multiple attackers & how to legally defend yourself. From day one of your training, you will learn 'arrest techniques' & how to turn an attacker's momentum against them. Alternatively, to practice 'legal self-defence' in England you would need to join the Police or the Prison Service, or, alternatively, you could become a mental nurse (they are required to restrain patients to administer drugs). Unfortunately, it is not legal for a member of the general public to own or carry a hand-gun in England. (The criminals you might meet - who are intent on breaking the law anyway - may well carry weapons. Martial arts like Aikido - & other forms of Jujitsu - teach you techniques to disarm an attacker with a weapon whether that's a knife, a chain, a bottle, or a pistol.) . It is not illegal in Britain to practise any martial art. You can practise anything you like, kung fu (Including weapons practice, swords, lances etc), Ninjitsu (swords, throwing weapons et.c), even Kendo or the more gentle martial arts as in Judo. It is not illegal to carry those weapons to and from the Dojo provided that you are licensed and insured with the appropriate martial arts organisation and the item is contained in a suitable locked bag or box and in the boot of a vehicle (i.e. not carried openly on the seat of a car). It is illegal to carry a martial arts weapons unsheathed in a public area at which point it is deemed a lethal weapon and may be deemed being "carried with intent", or threaten or harm the public with that item. If you use a martial art to defend yourself you are subject to the assault laws which state that you are only allowed to use minimum force to defend yourself. The Law does not state what minimum force actually is and it would be assessed on a case by case basis. This means that beating an attacker to a pulp using any form of martial art would more than probably result in legal prceedings taken against you and potentially could result in damages being awarded to the criminal. So in short you can 'practise' a martial art with licenced instructors on private premises, but legal issues can occur if your implement it in public. (MORE)
They actually go together. Karate will teach you many self defense techniques and methods, as well as increasing your awareness. Karate also teaches self discipline and patience.
Your question is far too broad for a WikiAnswer. Please narrow it down to a reasonable question.
There is no one answer to your question- otherwise there would be only one 9mm pistol made. It ill be the weapon that YOU shoot best, and is the most reliable in functioning. I am partial to the Browning Hi Power, other people prefer the Glock, some like the Sig, some S&W, some Mauser, Walther, Colt…, etc. If you are shopping for a handgun, find a shooting range that rents guns for use of the range, and try as many as you can.

The lion has its strength and is known as one of the world's fiercest animals. The lion's jaw is very powerful and the lion's teeth are also big weapons. They are not very fast compared to leopards and cheetahs but their claws could also come in handy during the need of self-defense.
Large ears to detect the movement of predators, such as leopards. Also the patterning on the legs, similar to a zebra's, has a confusing effect from behind when large groups run together. The predator finds it hard to distinguish one okapi from another - thus making it harder to single out and hunt …one (unless one is much weaker/younger/injured making it lag behind the others). They also have quite a good kick - but not powerful enough to cause any real damage - only to deter the predator. . (MORE)
Its important because you may get attacked therefore you'll need to protect yourself in case there is no one else around to help.
they tend flick their front arms up and sway side to side as anintention to make itself bigger and also flutters its wings as ifit were about to take lift
Karate is a martial art which not only teaches you to have a control on your senses but also teaches you some good self-defense. It teaches you disciple and emphasize never to be very aggressive. It has some really good techniques to knock out your opponent.
Deer are built for speed. When attacked, they prefer to flee. However, moose do have a tendency to attack domestic dogs, thinking the dog will attack them.
