Have you ever taken any self-defence classes? Could you defend yourself if you needed to?

I took one Tai Chi class, but didn't get on with it. I think that has more to do with the fact that the space provided wasn't big enough and the teacher wasn't there on the day went, so it was led by some of the other class members.
I did self defence classes for a term of sport in year 11 and 12. I quite enjoyed it as the teacher was very easy going. I doubt I could defend myself well though.
No I haven't. Having lived in a quite a dangerous area of London, I found that the best form of self-defence, apart from following common sense precautions like only parking in well-lit areas, was to walk tall and not act scared. Look tough and you are unlikely to be bothered. Worked for me for years! I would also be perfectly happy to jab a key into an attacker's eye, no qualms about that, so felt I had a back up plan as well.
I have never taken a class.

I do suffer from extreme rage, if someone try's to hurt me...(left over from a bad marriage)...Something go's off inside my head, and it is only triggered by an aggressive action, to me .....from another person.

I don't even know myself, when it happens....so it's a (maybe) I could defend myself, due to the amount of excessive adrenaline my body seems to be making.
You wouldn't last a moment if a male 'coward punched' you, though.
Neither do many others'.
This is a new senseless attack way on people that perp doesn' even KNOW!

Very, very scary!

I did Kung Fu for a couple of weeks but I didn't like it enough to stick with it. I've also taken a couple of those self defence classes for women.
What did you think of the latter?
by Vee
They were okay. They were a one off thing though, not an ongoing course so you kind of need to repeat it every few years or you forget what you learned.
I did once do a martial arts class and enjoyed it thoroughly, however I found myself too self-conscious to commit!
Yes, I have done judo many years ago but did not particularly like it.

I could not defend myself if I had to especially now with a huge back problem and nowhere near the strength I used to have when I had to lift bales of hay.

Tai Chi is is not a self defense -I have done this however it is just a good all round exercise.

Yes, and yes.
But must admit I ached all day after the training and needed to have a good soak in hot bathwater.
