All too often I hear about the legal consequences if you ever do end up defending yourself, but usually such stories and situations have to do with using guns in self defense. Since the gun debate is such a hot topic there are big arguments regarding the right to self defense with a gun and there's also arguments against using guns for self defense but you don't hear much arguments in regards to using martial arts, using your body and hands in self defense in situations that don't involve guns. As such people sometimes get in big trouble for taking down attackers and this is in situations that don't involve guns.

When it comes to damage and destruction guns are at a totally different level than martial arts, I don't care how good of a martial artist you are. Nevertheless you can still really get the book thrown at you if you ever do use martial arts in a real fight. I would like to discuss the law regarding self defense using just your hands and body and perhaps talk about taking steps to make it so that people don't get in trouble when they defend themselves.
