I'm seeing a lot of ego statements, and lack of decisions in the replies. Look ladies, HAVE A PLAN. Are you prepared to defend yourself? Are you prepared to injure, and potentially even KILL another person that is trying to rape or kill you? Are you in good physical condition, or in some type of training program? If not, you are a liability to yourself. During rape counseling victims are known to say, "I was so scared" or "I just could not protect myself." It is a significant source of post rape PTSD. Avoid this scenario. You are encouraged to have a pre-determined plan, and the mental and physical fortitude to execute that plan. I' m a big fan of women carrying guns complete with the license to conceal it. However, YMMV.
I’m kidding, I really don’t know. I pray this never happens. My man carries a gun though.

A nonlethal bear gun is a nice alternative too! Makes loud noise and firework-like light.
I don't think kicking is a good option unless you are very good at kicking. If he grabs your leg its all over.
@british_empire_1707. Even pepper spray is banned? Fucking hell.
@KrakenAttackin you can not keep a weapon of any kind dedicated for home defense. For instance if you keep a cricket bat by your bed as a home defense weapon and were forced to use it then you are in trouble but if you actually play cricket and happened to reach for your cricket bat to defend yourself in the heat of the moment you might get away with it if you know what I'm saying. Even using karate to defend yourself can get you in a lot of trouble.
Too bad for you. It turns out he was a black guy, and Black Lives Matters rallies America into thinking you're a racist white supremacist, and from pressure by the black female judge, you're given 25 years in maximum security prison, regardless if he actually deserved to get shot or not. Should've stuck with the legally safe option.www.nepm.org/.../...0617fajpg-b8f036aa02eb4714.jpg
You DO realize krav maga is entirely a defensive martial art and isn't the same thing as MMA or kickboxing, right? Not trying to accuse you of being an internet badass or anything, but... krav maga?
@MCheetah Ugh, not his "BuT KrAv mAGa iS nOt a GuD ThiNg" again... It's not entirely defensive and literally a few classes would have proved you that. I know what I learnt and I know my limitations. Sure I won't be as good as an experienced MMA fighter because, first, I did not train as much and, second, that's not my goal. Literally all I need to do is buy myself some time to escape as having a prolonged fight in the street is not the best alternative for many reasons.
You said you would straight up kick his ass. Punch him, kick him, and *put him in a headlock.* That sounds like head-on fighting to me. Not "buying time to escape."
@MCheetah No, that's not a straight up fight as the goal of that is to neutralize the threat quickly. You don't need to do both but, for safety, to make sure the guy is down, you can combo them or even add more. The goal is to quickly do something that neutralizes the threat long enough to escape with a good safety margin instead of gambling that you will escape from the attacker with his full strength. The goal is not to have a prolonged fight but to end things as quickly as possible. The headlock would be only if I want to finish him, KO him. For example, if I feel like the initial hits were not enough for him to stop being a threat, I can use the opening these hits created to attempt to neutralize him. Now, it's a gamble as I'm choosing to keep the danger close without guarantee that I will win but it's something I could try in some situations.Now, as I stated earlier, I'm not an expert, a tough fighter or anything like that. I know my limits and what I will do will mainly depend on the situation but my goal is to take the safest alternative for me and for the people that are with me so I won't play the tough guy. Escaping with nobody harmed is better than playing the tough guy and ending up beaten and potentially endangering the people with you. Now, all of that is just my opinion, my strategy and I don't claim it's the best in any way.
Thanks for clarifying.
@MCheetah No problem!
*or i can use anything as a weapon.
um, you can, with one of the weapons listed above... wth?
marshal arts or just kick him in the junk maybe
not in the options, but good try
Well that's what I have on me...
