Have you ever taken or considered taking a self-defense course?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 19, 2008
“Never really thought about it. I’ve never been too worried about self-defense.”
“Yes. I’ve thought about it, but I’ve never been able to find the time.”
“I have. I was in the Navy, so it was kind of required. I think there are a lot of benefits to it, but people often try to perform at a level beyond their training, which can get you into a lot of trouble pretty quickly.”
“No. I’ve never been in a situation where I felt threatened. I don’t think it would be a bad thing to do; I’ve just never felt the need.”
