nobody wants that, but through proper training and experience, you learn do that better, not be in that situation, and be a lot more comfortable in discomfort>>1148876
having a firearm for self defense is fine, and can definitely help in certain situations for sure. that being said, it's still a tool that requires it's own type of training and mindset, and is not the "instant win" situation that many make it out to be.
granted, you should never mess with a person with a gun for obvious reasons,as well as just psychological fear inducing to whoever you are facing, as it's a clear advantage on neutral ground beyond 5 yards no question. but within a certain range, somebody can still run in and disarm you if they are trained to do so, and if you aren't able to maneuver your gun in that short amount of time, then you can still be overpowered quite easily.
plus, there will be times you don't have access to a firearm, but there is never a time you don't have access to your arms and legs. so learning martial arts is always gonna be of service to you and your ability to defend yourself
plus outside of self defense, it's one of the best ways to stay in shape, and is very meditative, so very good for mental health.
