Bankuei, in his winning answer, is right that this comes down to specifics. If you really think about the situation, the person with the gun has a huge tactical advantage of having a gun, while you do not. In such an asymmetric situation, you're not going to find a general solution that wins. If one existed, guns wouldn't be such a big deal. Instead, you ...

I assume that you are not in that 2 vs 1 situation right now. I'd say you run, as far to safety as reasonable, starting right now. If you have any possessions (or family) you don't want to give up, you better start packing your bags and move out. You say you don't have the money to move, but that can't be right. You must sleep somewhere, you sell it, or if ...

The main problem with this is that anybody who was in the IDF ...

The thing is, you're approaching it kind of from the wrong angle. You're asking how you can reduce the number of days per week that you train so that you can just retain what you have and not lose anything. So you want the answer to be a simple "1", "2", or maybe "3" days per week. That's just not going to be easy for you or anyone else to say. The problem ...

Unfortunately, there is no clear answer to this question. The minimum amount of practice you need depends upon many factors which vary from individual to individual: Other activities - If you play a sport like soccer, you are more likely to retain things like reflexes. If you are well known for having a mind like a steel trap, you are more likely to ...

Boxing (Western) is a great way to get and stay fit. You say you don't have much energy, but you need to push your cardio-vascular fitness to build that back up (also, eat right). The punching fundamentals of boxing translate well to self-defense and are simpatico with most other fighting skills you may pick up. As an added bonus, boxing gyms are usually ...
