The bottom line is this: Martial arts are not self-defense. Self-defense is not personal safety. Fighting is neither self-defense nor personal safety. While martial arts training can be used in a self-defense context, it is a far better idea to create a much stronger alloy of personal safety instead of any single “fighting” system. Martial arts are part of complete personal safety regime, they are not the sole answer.
Mike Hughes of NextLevel Training asserts that trigger control is one of the most unnatural elements of shooting. We have to train our three joints to work together and move in a straight line. And the motion is not constant due to the design of striker-fired triggers. What can we do in training to ingrain
“Traditional Japanese Jujutsu descended from the arts the Samurai used effectively in life or death battles. Other than the possible use of a gun, fights today are basically as they were hundreds of years ago.It’s still a good method of self-defense..I have been practicing Japanese Jujitsu long before it became popular in the public and it has been effective for me in several street confrontations.” – Doris (Sourced from a Yahoo!

Wing Chun for self defence is rarely captured on film however this amazing ‘challenge match was captured on camera which shows a Karate student against a Wing Chun person, why would they do this? Who knows. The point is, you get to see the beauty of the technique of Wing Chun in action:
As Thom Sakata of judoinfo.com explains “Striking techniques are more hindered by attire, and expose the executor to a higher degree of self-inflicted injury than grappling techniques. By contrast judo’s nage (throwing) and katame (grappling) wazas are less affected by physical attire and safeguard the body’s limbs, allowing the judoka to “fight another day.”
Probably one of the most widely known styles, Karate is a Japanese martial art that relies on quick punches and kicks. I would debate its usefulness in the street, but some in the MMA world, specifically Lyoto Machida, have had success incorporating it into their overall repertoire. Since the base stance varies from a standard boxing position, it can throw off a traditional boxer and work to the karateka’s advantage. You’re the best, Karate Kid.
Simply walk toward the attacker (who has any weapon but a gun), and throw a front kick straight up against his chin as hard as possible. Kickboxing thrives on this sort of move, and teaches the practitioner to execute it with such extreme speed, faster than the attacker can react, that it virtually rules out the risk of “fancy kicks.” Do it correctly and it will almost always break his jaw, crush his larynx, shatter his teeth, force him to bite off his tongue, etc. He will not fight after this. This sort of kick is well trained to the point that it can, in fact, be delivered efficiently, that is, quickly and powerfully, without being telegraphed.
There are many products that are marketed specifically for female use. Some products (such as OC spray and tasers) can be disguised to look like a thing of lipstick. This allows for inconspicuous concealment and the ability to surprise an attacker.
Some shooters, especially those new to defensive shooting, mistakenly think that they should try to absorb firearm recoil because it will make them faster or better shooters. The truth is that absorbing firearm recoil is reckless and dangerous when a semiautomatic defensive firearm. In this live-fire demonstration on the range, Rob Pincus shows the

They punch, block, bob and weave going forward, and punch, block, bob and weave going backward. They are drilled relentlessly with the maxim, “Always protect yourself”. The hands stay on both sides of the head, the posture crouched so that the whole body is ready for explosive power, and that the front of the torso is protected by the forearms.
