I have been training for the last 20+ years in a Okinawan derived style called Bushin Ryu.

In that time I've also dabbled in some other arts and had the good fortune to train under some excellent people.

comment Wing Chun or Southern Praying Mantis?
I realize that this question is important to you, but it is exactly the type of question we try to avoid here as it solicits opinion or extended discussion, and its usefulness is limited to a very specific geographical area. You can still edit your question into something better, but for now it's closed. For more guidance visit the FAQ.

comment Addressing martial artists of another style
Excellent answer. The respect is evident in your tone and mannerisms. They are not going to bite your head off if you get it wrong, but they sure will be grouchy if you're not respectful. It's actually really easy to say something like "I'm sorry for asking, but I'm not sure of the correct title to call you by?". You could almost safely bet that other people will be glad you asked because they didn't know either.

Thanks @JuannStrauss. Dave is right - my original answer was written at about 0200 my time and was a bit vague.

comment What material should be covered in a rape-defense course?
Unfortunately you need to concentrate on the defense not the avoidance - in a vast majority of cases avoidance is not an option because the victim has been "selected" or targeted. While I agree that some techniques are a waste of time of just ineffective, you must teach them something other than just avoidance.

I have removed the links you left as they did not add any value to the question, and this is not a place for collecting links to offsite resources.
