I live in Florida and the law states that we (citizens of Florida) are allowed to use deadly force (hand to hand combat, weapons, etcetera) IF we have already attempted to retreat from someone who wishes to cause harm. The only exception to that is if you are at your home or in your work place by which you do not have to retreat to resort to deadly force. If you are attacked while you are at or in your car, you can not resort to deadly force unless you attempted to retreat.tolore said:wow what states do you guys live in, for all those self defense laws. i live in washington state and 2 men killed someone trying to steal their car, and they did get a sentence because you can't kill when protecting property but you are allowed to physically harm them. I assume you could do even more in self defense, i'm surprised your not actually allowed to kill in self defense. i wonder how you find out those kind of laws.
Yeah I know that, and that is why I want to go to a school that teaches you it in the good way.tolore said:the only problem with self teaching is that if you do something wrong but its close enough that it looks right, you'll continually drive the wrong way into your head and it'll be very hard to unlearn. Also experience is an important part of learning martial arts, i can throw great kicks and punches in practice but when i'm sparring its much more difficult.
