    Self defense is a vague term to describe ones natural impulse to avoid danger. Blocking a slap from your wife is still self defense, as is fighting actively against a street gang with weapons. In many instances, self defense can empower a victim with a high amount of potentially dangerous confidence – it wouldn’t be the first time I had heard a story of a well known boxer getting a bottle smashed on his head in a bar from a previously defeated opponent, or of someone who, rather than running, tried to defend against a small attack which escalated into an assault with weapons. Many self defence classes do their best to improve peoples confidence in a fight, which is good – however, that confidence can sometimes be their downfall

    Quite simply, if you are not able to look after yourself and your family, then no one else will do it for you.
    The police cannot do it, to serve and protect is a lie unless we each have a personal body guard who is a policeman and who gets our lattes for us.
    On one hand, it is argued that the world is more peaceful now than at any time in it’s history, on the other hand, it is argued that as more people are living in cities they are more likely to encounter random violence.
    So, it is a nice sunny day in the world but you are getting your ass kicked outside your house.
    You do not have a personal police bodyguard, and the nearest one is 5 blocks away looking for the attacker of one of his other, what, marks ?, friends ?, pay checks ?, what ?…

    You are out cold on the street, your best friend (the police) is busy, and your family is unprotected…

    Danger exists.

    Self preservation. One could argue that is the nature of every living thing, it is by design and function.
    Continuation of a species.
    That is my argument for that.
    The counter argument would be, it is better that one gives up his life for another, no greater gift has ever been given than this.
    That is kinda getting religious, but it is also purely philosophical in practice.
