Some good points but strange philosophy

"Probably best for the single parent mother trying to raise a boy, we start from the premise that you want to run first, then talk, then defend yourself. Unfortunately there is little evidence that running will do more than encourage a bully and talk is nice in theory but I never saw it work other than as a diversion. The escape techniques are excellent and there is no information which could offend even the person soft as baby poop. Personally I suggest a more direct approach, but in some situations this would be balanced. I find a frightening lack of realism about the school yard where kids today may be armed, or junkies or both. Kids must understand that even the LEO will avoid confrontation with an armed junkie until there are reinforcements.
Overall, I would strongly recommend it where Dad can sit down with son and/or daughter while watching it and discuss family philosophy about violence viewed from the oppressed and as viewed by the oppressor."
