Would you or do you plan on putting your child in self defense classes?

In this day and age with so many creeps around I at least want my child to know how to fight back. By self defense classes I mean anything from karate, tai kwon do, etc.

  • I can't wait honestly. When I was in 3rd grade I was beaten severely by a group of 8th graders on the way home from school. My dad enrolled my in Jujitsu (sp?) the next day. I LOVED going. Not only did we learn self defense, we learned how to focus ourselves. Our teacher was very focused on meditation and self control. I took those lessons with me long after I stopped taking classes. I think my DD's will really benefit from a class like that. Plus, girls should totally know how to kick butt! :)

  • we have always talked about martial arts, but not for self defense. we would like it for the self discipline, self respect and respect for others as well.
