Personally I don't have the time or money to take a class, so by going to the seminar I can see where I currently stand, how much I need to learn, and whether a bigger commitment is needed before my next big solo trip.

An hour is still less than nothing...

The one thing that becomes a problem with classes like this is that it provides a false sense of security and I think that is what level5 was getting at...just be careful not to think that the items and concepts taught there will actually provide you any equitable resistance to an individual determined to cause you harm...

1 hour is a bit short. occasionally a woman will wander in my class, I always politely decline to train them. very very few, as you know cajun, are going to hang with the rigors of muay thai. I wouldn't mind doing some jujitsu with a few of the hotter chicks, but I don't need to go down that road right now.
I was never really impressed with Kim, I watched him train a girl I was dating in college.

A little background - I'm a woman that rides a bike mostly in groups, sometimes with just one other rider (female), and many times alone. I'm setting up for my longest solo ride in the Spring: 16 days up to New England. I carry pepper spray in my tank bag, but other than that I am without a personal defense device (gun, knife, etc.)

I've never taken a self defense class and have just lived in blissful ignorance of the dangers around me. I do try to be careful with where I go and how I present myself in public so as to not make myself a target. I only use well-lit gas stations, I watch around me at ATM machines, I leave my bike in gear at stoplights for the quick getaway, etc.

I work nights and can't take a full adult-ed class due to time and money restrictions. What's my best bet for a little more peace of mind?

well i dont think there teachin women to be mma champs or nothing, but an hour to help them get away from some attacker, is worth it, the biggest thing for the woman or anyone is to build up the courage to fight back, and i do agree getting into a program will work in your favor and always teach you somthing new

Jiu Jitsu is perfect for a woman particularly when it comes to situations regarding rape or a bigger, stronger attacker. But I can understand your apprehension to wanting to teach them. Muay Thai is not for the faint of heart...you must have LOTS of heart and resilience to do Muay Thai....don't know much about Kim but I know that any form which neglects to train in a full speed combat situation ala Karate and other various forms, are lacking...

when the woman is being attacked, she will panic and not know how to react like in demonstration/siminar.

Go buy a Bas Rutten DVD, and get a friend and a good mat.


been meaning to ask you cajun, before I (last straw) ask my master about a kick-strike drill. my best student is having problems reacting to an inside front leg strike. I have been (both right stance, to his outside leg) throwing inside leg strikes with my back leg on him, and he just gets perplexed. his muay thai is excellent for a guy I've only had for 18 months, so he can keep the outside strikes away no problem. I don't really want him closing his hips to a more traditional muay thai stance, cuz he gets too anchored. I don't want him switching to lefty in mid strike unless he's chuting in. I can't seem to get a happy medium, and I;m about to cripple him unless he just ten kans' away.
any ideas? been meaning to have you pop in on us, but our schedule is hard to maintain since the holidays.
theories?

Ohh that's hard considering I was having the same problems...luckily I'm kind of quick and that helps to account for my shortcomings technically- also, I'm more boxer than Muay Thai guy, that's why I want so bad to find a group to train with. I want to be able to use better use my legs. The only thing I would say is that you have to drill it over and over again. He has to get conditioned to react to it. Also, there are reads that he can make, each opponent will be different of course but most guys have "a thing" that they do before each strike and he has to be perceptive in reading that. I'll ask a friend of mine what he thinks and I'll pm you what he tells me. He's over in Japan right now though so I won't be able to call him until tomorrow morning....I'll keep you posted...

Can't afford the time/$$ for the class or a proper weapon. Add to that the fact that I'll be traveling through (potentially) 24 states, not all of which accept the TX CHL as a right to carry within their state.

It's on the list for the future, just not soon.
