If you're a 14-year-old girl who knows kung fu, you could wander around in a park late at night beating up random older men who are by themselves and then telling the cops they attacked you.
Who's going to believe the creepy older guy over the awesome young girl?

Think about it.

Since this was the UK, I'm surprised they didn't charge the girl with assault and battery and slap her with an ASBO.

Remember folks, while the coppers in the nanny state won't respond to emergency calls for violent crimes, it's never ok to take the law into your own hands.

The story I loved was about the mugger farked up on PCP who ran up on an ancient former British Navy boxing champion. The old man set himself beautifully in an old-school stance, then threw one punch as the mugger closed. The mugger just deflated. Turned to Jello and spread himself thinly over the sidewalk.

Can't find the video anymore.

You got that right.

CSB: My spouse and I spent most of March traveling around the UK. At one point, we took a ferry from Ireland to England. There was a rather formidable guy on the boat who started picking fights with people. Several passengers reported it to the ferry staff. Nothing was done. When we got to the end of the trip (at a ferry/train station), there were people checking passports. This guy had none. They let him through, anyway. He continued harassing and threatening people at the train station. Several people complained, and about two hours later two security people appeared and told him to leave the station. We pointed out that he was most likely going to come right back and that the police should probably be getting involved here. The security guys said they'd called the police and that they'd said it didn't sound like enough of a problem for them to come check it out. When the train finally came, he was allowed on it. He proceeded to run up and down the aisles, going from car to car, harassing people. At one point, I'd fallen asleep and was abruptly awakened by this guy, who was sitting in the seat next to me. He wanted money for snacks. . . Dude could have just as easily had a knife.

Several stops later, the woman checking everyone's tickets threw him off at an intermediate station.

Yeah, GREAT law enforcement system over there. . . .

I tell all my friends to enroll their daughters in Krav Maga classes. It's the Israeli art of ball kicking.

I've been taking classes for a couple of years and it's fun as hell, plus in the unlikely case that I am in a street fight I can hold my own.

In the US they would have dealt with a situation like that way faster, and maybe even shot the guy dead before he did anything.

... Well only if he was blah. That important detail was missing from your CSB so not sure how the judge the police response.

To the guy who wants to know what martial art to enroll yoyr daughter, I'd go with the one's like ju jitsu, muay thai, krav manga, the one's that are focused on inflicting big hurts on other people... Id stay away from the showy dance stuff, the "sport" stuff, etc.

Fluke. It's a rare girl who can hang with guys anything near her size in striking.

Judo is perfect for kids. Throwing people and being thrown isn't as scary as hitting, and unlike most karate or Kung fu styles, you actually get to practice exactly what they claim they're teaching you. There's none of this fantasizing about chopping throats and poking eyes and other things you'll never actually practice doing.

This. She was beating up was the physical equivalent of another 14-year old girl. The girl won the assailant lottery in terms of possible attackers.

Moms and dads: please do not infer from this story that a black belt in tae-Kwan-leap, foreign-commando-attack or hexagon-fighting will enable your snowflake to deal with a large man, let alone multiple assailants.

Many, many (manymany) years ago, I took a short judo class. I was twelve or so - I think my parents paid something like five bucks a class at the YMCA. Since then, the minimal amount of fall-breaking skills I learned in that class has probably saved me a half-dozen broken bones and thousands of dollars in medical bills...

I'm not sure if you're putting us on, but you picked terrible examples for a sport vs. street argument.

Muay Thai is a pure ring sport.  The Brazilian version of Jujitsu (which I'm guessing is what you mean since the Japanese stuff is called "jujutsu") is as well.

Krav Maga is mostly grotesque fantasies about eye poking and knee smashing.  Amusing Simpsons episodes aside, nut kicks aren't a magical off switch for male attackers.

If you're seriously asking, no, Judo isn't a self-defense style, really.

Awesome sport, though, and since the focus is very much on  not hurting anyone (injuries in a match mean somebody done farked up) it's a good physical sport for children, and it's probably the best health regimen of any of the fighting sports, since it keeps pretty much your entire body strong.  It may be a good place to go to find actual self-defense classes, too, because of the focus on submissions and low-injury restraints it's very popular among police and other law enforcement types, who can point you in the direction of standard self-defense training (which is general police-sponsored).

cirby: Since then, the minimal amount of fall-breaking skills I learned in that class has probably saved me a half-dozen broken bones and thousands of dollars in medical bills...


Also, this.  Goddamned horses would have killed me half a dozen times without the standard break-fall I learned from judo and stage fighting.  Kind of a basic practical skill if you do pretty much anything that involves physically moving around a lot.

// One of my more sarcastic instructors used to call the break-fall the 'cowboy roll' for pretty much the same reason, most people that have ever worked with horses know how to do it even if they don't think of it as a wrestling move.

Eye poking and knee smashing are exactly what you want your daughter (or son or wife or husband) to be prepared to inflict on an attacker.

Elbows, knees, palms, feet - Krav Maga uses whatever you have free. And it teaches how to respond to people trying to grab or choke you. And you practice on the other students.

Anybody who practices fighting like that has a better chance in a real-world fight.

How about getting her into or on the Cross Country running team. I think the ability to put lots of real estate between her and anyone that makes her nervous would be more useful than her trying defend herself in hand to hand combat.  

+ strong legs to deliver a quick  kick in the biscuitsfor a head start.

Here's the problem:  You've never poked anybody in the eye in a fight.  That means you don't know if you can do it, and you don't know what effect it has.  Oh, you THINK you have a good idea, and you probably practiced some variation of aiming above, below, or to the side, or wearing goggles, or moving in slow motion or something.  Ditto for the ol' knee snap that everybody thinks is so easy.  The fact that sports like muay thai and gridiron football exists should be the evidence we need that the human knee isn't made of popsicle sticks, but there we are.  You have theories about the effect of these techniques and your ability to do them, but you actually practiced something else, unless your school has a lot of crippled, blind, and/or dead students hanging around.

On the other hand a boxer knows he can hit somebody in the face who's trying to hit him back while not getting hit.  He has done it.  A judo player knows he can throw somebody down who doesn't want to get thrown.  He has done it.

My take on the sport vs. street debate:  There aren't sport martial arts and real martial arts.  The sports are the only real ones out there.
