Which is where your training in the martial arts should come into play. You should be experienced enough that you're not cowering under those barrage of punches, but making quick and effective decisions in order to get out of that situation. If the totality of your training goes out of the window when someone starts hitting you, then I'm afraid you've wasted your time and money practicing martial arts, and you should have taken up a different activity.
I agree totally.
My earlier argument was that if she had taken a more contact based style (like Bjj or Kyokushin), she probably wouldn't have eventually needed help to get out that situation, or taken the amount of damage that she took. .
The conclusion does not necessarily follow the premise There are a number of possible factors that could have affected her performance. For example, if she had more skill or experience in martial arts she could have taken less damage and gotten out of the situation without help.
