But is it bad on my end if my main objective is just to hit a man in the groin as hard as I can in these classes?
I mean self defense is self defense, but I guess a good idea to go is if ! Your attacker isn't Male or two the attacker has you in a position you can't kick them in the groin
From what the self-defense classes are based on, it's a few men who are kind of like crash test intruders/enforcers and the class is just for women.
plus they said the men wear protective cups so *shrugs shoulders*
Intruders can be woman too, but either way the classes are a great idea
Your right but lets be honest these classes are meant against attacks against guys, I don't have to worry about a female encountering me for sex and being aggressive or using cheesy pick-up lines.

have you ever done them?
No, I haven't but I don't see any downsides to attending them
i mean i went to 1, this guy in the class basically wrapped me with his arms from behind and i just swung low and hit him in the groin and he fell down but im assuming its not that easy to take down men.
If it's not easy then I think the classes would really help. It's better than nothing
im not trying to sound like a mean person but I admit I just want to hit him down low, is that a cheap way to fight? :-s
No, I don't think so. Men are naturally stronger than women so you have to capitalize on their weaknesses in order to overtake them.
Oh I would definitely capitalize, some guys in the class make fun of me because I'm 5'2 and I can't hurt them and then try to pull cheesy pick up lines... its pretty annoying tbh.
Well.. I wouldn't say you should assault people because they're making fun of you... I think it should only be used when you're in an unsafe predicament and someone attacks you.
I know this may sound odd but what is the best method in your opinion in self-defense to hit a guy down there? Punch, knee, or kick?
Probably the knee, you can do it quicker than the other two
