weapons are for pussies, go do jiu jitsu
not really b....weapons are for self defense. If a niggga is putting me in danger, do I really wanna roll around on the floor with him and get all dirty and sweaty? Do i wanna wrestle the gun/knife away from him and run the risk of getting shot/stabbed/sliced? IDK about you, but I don't. I'd rather just pop 4, call the cops, turn it in, and get dismissed for self defense.
You know if you break a dude's arm in a fight, it's excessive force...and in real life a dude's not gonna tap out and stop fighting cuz you put him in an armbar. Your only option is to choke them to sleep. Otherwise, if you pound them too bad, it's excessive force, not self defense. Trust me, happened to a dude i knew.
And jiu jitsu is only good if you go to the ground....other wise, you're better off taking something that shows you how to end a fight or self defense situation in 3 moves or less....like krav maga or some other form of military hand to hand combat.
Like, if i'm bare handed and i'm fighting a dude who's like 6'4" 240lbs, i'm throwin my thumb in his eye full force, punch to the adam's apple, poppin ear drums and all that....self defense is different from "fair fighting".
