It is surprising that the 19 year old was able to find an attorney who would take a case against a 17 year old. When you sue someone, you sue for something, and most 17 year olds don't own enough to make it worthwhile. So unless the 19 year old is merely threatening to sue, then the 19 year old is...
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.

Security specialists the world over advise MAKE NOISE! WAVE YOUR ARMS WILDLY TO GAIN THE ATTENTION OF OTHER CAR DRIVERS OR PEOPLE ON THE STREET! Get out of the car when it slows down for a turn, or stops for a traffic signal. Cause the kidnapper to wreck the car! This can be accomplished by...
Any of the three can be effective for self defense. Hapkido and Jujitsu are similar in some respects, and of course Judo was derived from Jujitsu. As a second degree black belt in judo I would say that either of the first two would be better because I believe they both involve learning to block...

Wake up! Don't sleep while driving, it's EXTREMELY dangerous! Behind the wheel is no place to be napping! But seriously, I believe the best offense is a good defense. In other words, DONT GET CARJACKED in the first place! A carjacker will jack your ride usually for one of two reasons...
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
most states do not require any license to have a frearm in the home. Again, most state allow for self protection in ones home.....................
This is a difficult question to answer, because of several things. The following answer should be considered to be a very basic answer: First, under general deadly force laws, you are not justified in shooting or even shooting at a person unless you are justified in klling that person. So, in that...

This is a rather vague question since you would have to specify who "they" are. However, Taekwondo has been used for self defense from the time it was first established as the national Martial Art of Korea, until today. Even before the name Taekwondo was officially used to describe the Korean...

Three types of non resistant self defense are Japanese Jujitsu, Judo, and Aikido. These arts do not utilize power against power. They use your opponent's own force and momentum against him, but it takes years to really master them. Addendum: Actually, the only means of non-resistant self...

Brazilian Jujitsu it a good fighting art, not self defense art. If you hop in a ring with another dude, and agree to a set of rules, BJJ is the way to go. On the street, BJJ will get you killed. For example: You are challenged to a fight, you land a punch and he goes down. You, being a BJJ...

The standard of the evidence varies between different states, in some states the evidence must be "clear and convincing" while in other...
Japanese is always better because you maintain your standing position and never give it up. This means that you always are upright and can fight more opponents at the same time or back to back quicker. Also it is a lot deadlier and far more effective.
i don't think sp because his dead and who would show for his defense or appeal __________ This might be a long shot, but if you were found not guilty because it was self defense you might try to file a civil action against this guy's estate for whatever damages you claim to have. Call an...

The best martial art to take for immediate self defense is Judo; far as "tools" the truth is its best to trip someone and then just run, assuming they are not using a firearm. It also depends on your age and where you are; usually, modern day bullies are protected by the teachers, so its not wise to...
The best women's self defense teacher I know goes by the name Raziq Shaikh and he is from Hyderabad. I have attended his classes for a month, 5 days a week and came to learn that he is more focused on practical street fighting techniques than focusing on tough-to-remember martial art techniques. ...
ok first of all you have to size them up, if you are 5,2 and and they are a 6,4 bodybuilder. You would be stupid to contemplate fighting, so in that case you should run. But if they are a reasonably similar height to you and not to large, attacking them would probably be best to teach them a...
I am assuming you are a US citizen correct? Well, the answer is yes, Mexico has unarmed all its citizens- that is why the police in Mexico is corrupt and all of the Mexican government is bought out by the Drug smugglers. You need to be a resident of Mexico with a "Grey Card" and have a permit to...

Murder isn't considered self defense. They are two different things, two different words with different definitions. If you mean "killing," killing and murder aren't always the same thing. Murder is killing unjustly. Killing another person can sometimes be justified by law.. If someone runs at you...
Self-defense is a thing that happens in the moment. You defend yourself with only necessary force at the time you are assailed. Retaliation is after the fact. Say someone beat you up & left you lying in the street, and then they left the scene, maybe to a bar or back to their home. If you track them...
Kick them straight in the nuts. That puts any man down ! Yes, a swift kick in the nuts works, but it also depends on the circumstance. If you are truly afraid for your life, punch them in the throat (not with a fist, with your knuckles curled on you fingers), if it is a simple schoolyard fight...
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.
It would of course depend on what you mean by "successful", and from whose perspective. I can't answer your question because of these and other reasons, but perhaps I can help you focus on what you are interested in. If for example you had a concealed carry permit and were carrying a gun when...
Answer Your instructor will teach them to you when you are ready. For an instructor to share these techniques with you requires a trust that you will not misuse them and hurt people inadvertently, nor teach them to others until you are properly trained and certified as both a Black Belt, and...
Well Krav Maga is a combination of many martial arts like Jiujitsu, Muy Thai, and Kickboxing. It seems that Muy Thai is pretty similar. MMA would be like the sport version of krav Maga. They are both a combination of several martial arts, both are modern, and both are proven to be effective, but MMA...
