I'm trained in self defense. It must be different here in Canada. We are taught that once the offender is down, not to run, but to cause further injury (like stomp on his face or throat before you run) to make sure we have time to get away without being perused.As I may've mentioned before, in my research for my Criminology MA I read an interesting paper about the response of yer classic 'Crimewatch' rapist to a woman's resistance.
Rapists in several British prisons were interviewed (I forget how many, could look it up if anyone's really interested) who had committed a specifically kidnapping-themed offence, where they'd abducted a woman to rape.
They were asked many questions, including some about how they'd respond if the woman tried to fight back and made a noise.
Their answers were split almost evenly between those who'd be put off and those who'd find it no problem or even a turn-on - about 51/49%.
So if this very particular disaster should befall a woman, she has about a 50/50 chance of fighting off the attacker, even with no self-defence skills. That's a good enough reason to learn some.
That's another thing that must be different here in Canada. A bouncer is not allowed to follow you outside to fight further. Not only will he/she be fired, they will also be charged by police.This looks quite nasty. But they could have walked away at any time.
That was great. Thanks for sharing.Here's a story of true chivalry that should put a smile on everyone's face ..

'An 83-year-old man pushed a suspected burglar off his roof in La Puente on Tuesday, capping an hours-long standoff with deputies, authorities said.
Crisis negotiators had been called to the neighborhood, where a man was jumping from rooftop to rooftop, Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said.
The suspect was on one roof for about five hours before the elderly resident “got tired” of his antics, climbed onto the roof and pushed the man off, according to Sgt. Joseph Morales.
“The grandpa did what we couldn't,” Capt. Tim Murakami tweeted after the incident.
It should be made into a movie with Nic Cage or Liam Neeson playing the part of the cop.Here's a story of true chivalry that should put a smile on everyone's face ..
Years ago when I did martial arts, we practiced in a church hall in the centre of town. One summer's night we had the doors open as it was really warm. Not long after we started a couple of youths come wandering in and start hurling abuse at the instructor. They were asked to leave several times and then one threw a punch at the instructor and was promptly sent flying by a kick to the abdomen. His mate picked him up and they legged it away.Pick another gym next time!
Would-be thief in Rio chased out by jiu-jitsu students
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A would-be thief in a Rio de Janeiro suburb apparently chose the wrong gym to rob.
Surveillance camera footage shared widely on social media shows the man entering the gym and jumping a turnstile after arguing with the receptionist. Several seconds later, the man is seen jumping back over the turnstile and fleeing outside. He is chased by several jiu-jitsu students dressed in uniforms.
Jiu-jitsu teacher Edgar Neto told The Associated Press that the incident happened Monday night and he reported it to police.
The man managed to escape. Police said Wednesday he hasn’t been arrested, but they have recovered one of his sandals that fell off during the chase.

Shocking dashcam footage captures the moment a baseball bat wielding thug got more than he bargained for after coming up against a mixed martial arts expert.
The recording shows a thug leaping out of his car and grabbing a bat from his boot following an argument with the driver of a Peugeot 206.
After threatening the man with the weapon he then takes aim at the car - which proves to be a very costly mistake.

A man apparently trying to carry out an armed robbery on a corner shop on Christmas Eve ended up pinned to the floor by the shopkeeper – a black belt in karate – and “begging” to be released.
CCTV footage showed the man threatening Sibu Kuruvilla and an assistant with what appeared to be a pistol inside the shop, before being thrown to the floor. Police later arrived, alerted via the shop’s silent alarm.
“You get to a point where you think you have to do something and you have to react. That is where I thought I could do something and I have the courage to do it,” Kuruvilla said.
