comment Who was the first female judoka?
I have edited the question into three questions. (I've dropped the fourth on sexism in aikido until I find a way to make it objective and not an invitation to discussion. I think it is vital, but perhaps a bad fit for SE). Note that some of the comments above were made prior to the edit and may now appear unrelated.

comment Choosing a Target When Cornered by Multiple Attackers
Let's keep legal discussions off the site; they are very localized. @Sardathrion's caution is legitimate - when considering an attack, ponder the legal implications IN YOUR LOCALITY. Anything beyond that is not martial arts, it is legal advice.

Quite possibly true on all accounts. I thought that I'd be more likely to get an answer here.
