Not just a couple of days with one instructor and a dozen giggling girls? Do tell.
Maybe we've had different experiences. I certainly don't remember the girls in my former MA classes giggling. Nowadays on the job, we need to go to periodic refresher/ new tactics courses in crisis management and restraint. Lots of teachers, young and old, school secretary, nurse, and teacher aids. No, it's not defense against a gun, it's defense against catching a roundhouse to the cheek or whatever, but still, I don't recall any giggling. Don't go after the teacher in room 4, she'll tie you up like a pretzel, and she's anti everything -anti gun, anti war, anti men, and the list goes on. Then again, she looks like Earnest Borgnine.
Only the ignorant find ignorance to be bliss. Only those of us who know better will suffer from it.

Yep, a single class is indeed enough for a woman to learn how to successfully take a gun away from a resisting male. However, it requires practice after the event or your money is wasted. And how much value you will get out of such a class depends upon your commitment to really understand what you are doing and why, and to practice afterward.
You have spent much of this thread arguing scornfully against a position nobody has actually taken. It's amusing, but not productive.
