u do understand im the guy whos going to hit right
And you do relaize that girls do these classes with that knowledge right?
And I've done such classes with men, they except you to do so.
well how do women or girls usually fight, is it fighting with real aggression or just passive-fighting
Considering I'm not most girls and know how everyonefight, I can give you a direct answer. If theirfighting, one cnnomly assume that they are doing so with real aggression. I know the girls I'm around fight with real aggression, a lot you'd hair as a crutch, and when they are down, they go to town. But, if I'm physically fighting, I'm out for blood. It takes a certain point to get me to fight, mlm mostly because petty trash talk doesn't bother me. But, ifnyou touch me, I'm aiming to break nose's, fingers, ribs, etc. I've broken a couple noses and when I did wrestling, I gave girls concussions, not on purpose tho, but, I went a bit to ham during my matches
well something kind of worried me about what the owner of the self defence school and what she said to me
she said you better wear a special protective cup because women really do cause severe shots to a man's privates and she said a few men who in trained who did these courses as "the attacker" did not wear proper protection and had to leave. She said women in these classes are not going to have pity for men because some of them have deep embedded, pent up frustration or sexual assault experiences by men.
Yup! So? What do you expect?
Well I don't want girls and women going full fledge hits down there, how do you think I feel as a guy who has to be purposely leave my legs exposed to be hit down there by a girl smaller then me, it's hurtful for the pride of a guy... But, ugh, I know your going to say it helps women/girls build their self confidence in self-defence situations by fighting back and taking a stand against awful men/guys.
Well, first, don't assume anything to what I say, because it makes you look silly. Second, it's you who has to understand what these women went through. Women get told from day one that men are going to hurt them if they are not careful, how men are stronger, how men are faster how this is a mans world. We get told how weak we are and how fragile we are. Women get told it's their fault for getting sexually assaulted because she asked for it because of what she wore, or for going out somewhere. Their "pride" is diminished as soon as we hit puberty. However, we also get told that the great threat that we are told to be weary of, has a weakness. Their gentials. And guess what? When faced with a being who is physically stronger and faster than us, we WILL retaliate and use their weakness against them. You can wear jock traps and cushions to protect yourself. But guess what? Women, we dont get padding when we are raped. We dont get protection if we are grabbed one day and forced into terrible situations. Your pride? Please, I'm sorry, but if you're so worried about getting hit, then do what women get told to do, and "don't put yourself into a position to get hurt"
Also, if they know you're a instructor, they won't aim to hurt you, but, the hole point of these classes is to go full force. If you halfabut, you learn nothing. That's just fact in sports and auch
i can't argue that you are 100% right.
I'm not saying you shouldn't protect yourself tho love. Your safety is also a great importance. But, these classes are made for women to go ham during practices because it's a simulation for real life. If you want, you can make sure to emphasize that they need to know more than groin attacks, because they wo t always get a chance to hit a guys groin, they need more than just one move
yeah but lets be honest, if men think with their dicks and use that sexual arousal to attack women, im pretty sure that area is the #1 spot for retribution. I get what your saying but it really doesn't take much to take down a man, besides a set of keys, some pepper spray and boots. Really if a women plays innocent and coy, a man will put his guard down and that's when she can go in for the attack and run for cover and call the police. I don't support that type of violence but I'm not going to be surprised if I get a few light bruises on body and a couple of hard kicks to the groin. Even wearing a cup, it's like a shock wave which still affects that region being a guy... sorry i dont mean to be all descriptive with this. Im just trying to understand how women approach these classes, if there easy going or very aggression, i understand now its #2.
That's the thing though, its not that easy for lot of women to take down a man. Fear, being the number one issue. I've just graduated university for criminal justice and I'm going into LE, and I bbn spoken to many people, men and women, about assault and what therapists and offi CD ers had to say about victims and just being a gurkha myself and the concept nk of having to fight a man off. When they aren't expecting it, the dear alone has them freazingnip. The whole fight or flight is in effect. Especially if the guy has a weapon. This is what the classes help to do, teach women to handle such situations. Which is why I wish more would take such classes. To me, you should feel proud helping these women, because you are potentially saving a woman from experiencing the worst of humanity by teaching her how to protect herself. Even if it's just a move to get a guy off M of hers she is capable of escaping and yelling for help, thus rendering him off her tail and running away. And all because you and the other instructor taught her how to do so, and apply it in real life!Just know, that the bruises and the scrapes you endured during the classes, has the potential of saving someone's mother, sister, aunt, etc. And agian, just put emphasis on telling them to work on other moves. If you double padded, maybe it can help even more, I don't know the equipment that you'll be using, but just try to be careful, if you end up doing the classes. Also, fun fact, men who rape, dont typically do so for sexual pleasure, it's more of power trip. If they wanted easy sex, they would do for prostitutes or tumbler, it's not so much the sex itself, it's the "hunt" the domination of a real woman who can't defend herself. Rapists are sick disgusting individuals, who like the thrill of getting and taking their victims.
But what I don’t get is, in a self defence class if there’s a man who’s the attacker and he seems like an overall nice guy, how can a woman go full fledge and try and hurt him. Again, yes he’s wearing body suit padding but those things are 100% hurt proof. After your discussion I actually stopped by the self defence school/building and I spoke to the woman in charge. And I kinda asked her a dumb question :-/ which didn’t turn out so good.
Dude, have you never done sports? Have you never went ham during pravtice o your own teammates? I've done softball, wrestling etc and my teammates and I went ham on each other. This, is the same concept. They plan on going ham and they see you wearing a bodysuit, so have little worry about you getting hurt.
well earlier today i actually met with the woman who manages the business and i said are these suits really safe, she's like here try it on, now she know karate and different forms of fighting. When she kicked me between the legs I actually felt it and was like owwf and she started laughing, she's like don't worry after a while the men in the suits get used to it.
Ah whatever I’ll just take your advice and put my male ego aside.
Damn I guess you don’t have anything else to say after that story
Nah, I just dont live on this site. And as for you, I say do that and put your ego aside. Or, if you dont care, just dont do it. Nobody is forcing you.
I signed a contract for a minimum of 3 classes
Well then, next time read things and ask questions before toh sign your name on documents
Well then you join the class and tell those girls to go easy on me, how about that. Just be like ladies, down aim anywhere down there, he’s very nervous, your a girl they’ll listen to you.
Nah, I've already joined enough classes like that, I'm looking for something else, also, I'm not an out to go searching for you
Sheesh I’m gonna get my ass kicked by a bunch of women... bad way to spend a Friday night.
No your not. It's not that hard to stand tour ground wearing a suit. Piece of advice, when they make contact, breathe out, like a big huff. Especially if the hit your stomach. It helps break the impact and you are less tense, so your body doesn't eat the hit as much
Yeah but what if a girl in this class says don’t touch me loudly as I’m instructed to grab her and she hits me in the groin like 3 times in a row. I won’t have time to breath and exhale like that. I’m fucked then.
She won't. Its a class. Enough with the paranoia
well my ex girlfriend friend is in this class and she doesn't like me that much soo..
Well i did my first class, I figured to give you an update.
