If you learn it just to defend yourself?

I am thinking of doing something like kung fu, but even if I learn it I am still a skinny 5"6 woman.. For self defence purposes can a martial art for women be much use? :yep:

You learn it to get off your arse and be active and fit Hopefully you won't have to defend yourself with it.

No, unfortunately I'm too busy looking for employment that the only exercise I do is cycling, and that really depends on the weather...

:kungfu:

the benefits of disciplined training in any martial art include confidence & self control. these will enable you to avoid risky situations and to maximise your chances if you end up in one.

It's good, I get to explore but at the same time I always have to watch out for cars. As long as I follow those little blue signs I should be alright

Yes, it is beneficial if you join a good club that doesn't allow you to slack.

That's exactly what I was explaining to someone the other day.

I'm 5'2 and a judoka, and in my classes I usually fight against women who are in most cases near my height and the same weight as me. This also applies to the competitions I enter, I always fight against women.. guys too if they're the same weight as me but that's very rare. But if I were to get man-handled by a guy, who will (99.9% of the time) be taller and heavier than me, where do my Judo skills come in? :zomg:
