    Well, in that case, no one is absolutely safe and Martial Arts are short to solve the problem...

    Not sure why one's religion is relevant to one's need for self defense skills.

    I, however, have a different view.

    Growing up in Boston's Archdiocese in the 1960s, self defense skills were an integral part of our religious protocol and dogma itself.

    They were called "Priest Repellent."

    That's right, I said it.

    as christians,(baptist) we all need to know how to defend ourselves and family, due to the bad folks coming against us.

    What kind of bad folks?

    Is it related to the times we're living now?

    An important aspect of self defense is understanding what sort of threats you are likely to encounter in a given situation.

    If you are living in El Paso, Texas you are far, far more likely to be assaulted by a Christian and/or a capitalist than you are to be attacked by a communist or a member of ISIS. It's just a matter of demographics.

    It's not like they come to Western countries just for the purpose of committing attacks. It's not an "invasion" in the way one could imagine.

    The ones that blow themselves up over here are for the major part born in the West and are regular delinquents looking for an excuse to hurt others. ISIS gives them a reason to let their hate flow.

    The country that actually has to worry about "ISIS folks coming over the border" is Turkey, not the US.

    As Tony said, ISIS and communists make up a minority of the potential agressors in your area. Also ISIS people don't go around mugging people or starting brawls, they either go boom or go on a gun rampage, which are situations where martial arts training is not that relevant. Unless you're on a Thalys and you're lucky: France train attack: Americans overpower gunman on Paris express
