Legally there are consequences in fighting a woman, even if the same weigh. Physically women aren't built as tough and in the U.S. it would really look bad before 12 jurors for you to appear in court (3 times UFC champion or 6th degree Black belt) after injuring woman in a "fair fight".


On the other hand the new reality is Street gangs now consist of girls with the same agenda rob, mug,steal, cut, shot or kill to get ahead in the Gang. I've been raised not to strike a woman/girl as a patrolmen I've never had to knock one out. Alway stun and restrain no matter how big.

But once I bumped into a young lady in a shop meet, she didn't except my apology, she whistled and 4 others girls (15-18 yr old surronded me). I immeadiatedly went from smiling apologetic, concerned adult to predator, if you want some come get it, Male aggressor, no words just actions.

They sized me up and decided that it wasn't worth it or that they would get hurt really bad.

So I don't condone fighting girl/women, but if they threaten my life with a weapon or serious intent, they become the weapon and I'll take it where ever they want to go. Even, whatever.

In training its good that women should work with mens, in training I've been thrown or floored while in a full commiited attack on a woman. But in a real street fight I still teach women to counter and run or gain access to a weapon, to secure her escape.

There are some really tough and mean women out there, but FBI statistic still state that women are killed by men more often, spousal abuse, serial killers, accidental ManSlaughter, ect... . Then women kills men.

Personally, I don't like the idea of fighting a women.

I'm in the Canadian Forces so obiously if a female picked up a weapon in war time, I would put a couple rounds in her.

I guess the same would go for in the streets to, but if she had just hit me in the face, I'd laugh it off.

In the testicles, she better be prepared for a good hard beating, thats personal. No one touches the twig and dingleberries, and if they do (man or woman) they get it hard.

Self defense is not competition. My employment requires self defense fairly often. When it comes up, the client, aggressor is USUALLY in the inferior position because of the number of staff available to manage the potentially dangerous situation.

Self defense requires that you do the minimum you need to do to get away safely. (talking about the position of advantage). I am female. There is little I could do in an aggressive temper tantrum to injur a large male. Even if he is in the right, he is not really at risk and harming me should not be his first option.

It would be the equal if I am defending against aggressive behavior in my job, or even defending myself against someone in my Jr. High martial arts class or younger. I would never harm one of them on purpose, I would just manage the behavior safely until the threat was over.

I teach a course at work in how to avoid physical conflict. The physical portion of an episode is actually short lived. If you are male, defending against an aggressive, inferior fighting female, remember this. It isn't necessary to meet THIS encounter with an all out warrior spirit. Manage the situation. The high calorie output in a short space of time for her, can not be maintained for long. When it is over, you will not have to deal with the legal system if you only do what you need to do to defend yourself.

I have had several “fights” with woman workings doors.

Just treated them as smaller opponents, as such, restraints normally work.

Long time ago, we had a scrap with some guys, threw them out a side door, we walked them off the grounds…. one colleague, had someone jump on his back and grab him round his neck, he had no time to think and just threw his attackers over his head onto the ground……

Yep, you guessed it, a girlfriend of the group we had ejected, she was somewhat splattered…

I Did drag a real spitfire out of a club by the hair one night, she had knocked 7 bells out of her BF, and when I got to them she had a go at me….she was screaming all the way out the club…up 3 flights of stairs. My argument was that if I wrapped her up and took her out the club, I was open to an indecent assault charge,…...” he touched my breasts” …………so to protect my self I used her hair……

We live in the 21st century, and time of equality and non discrimination, Chivalry is dead, the woman’s liberation movement killed it , thank god!
Our woman can fight in the military, work as LEO & security, they have insisted in being treated as physical equals, so it surely cant be no worse a man hitting a woman than a man hitting a man. To state otherwise is being sexist isn’t it?
