Good.

I support any peaceful, law abiding citizens learning how to defend themselves in a bad situation...

Especially the poor gays.

Otherwise, you gonna end up like Russia...

They have Orthodox Christian fight clubs


Pagan fight clubs


Muslim fight clubs


Atheist Communist fight clubs


Etc lol Russians of all stripes love fighting...

They have all-female fight clubs too


Only ones who don't have own fight clubs, in Russia, pretty much, are the gays; which is why everyone else beats the hell out of them when they try to protest for equality and such...

From Rio to Orlando, self-defense classes are catering to LGBTQ people
LGBTQ people face a heightened risk of hate violence, and this is part of the reason martial arts studios are tailoring classes to their specific needs.

It is sad to see that it has come to this simply because stupid and bigoted Heterosexuals attack members of the LGBT Community thus, they have found the need to protect themselves from farther harm. What I have never understood is why do the anti-Gay bigots feel the need to use destructive force against Gay people? If they don't like them or what they do then just leave them alone. After all, they are not bothering them and most times don't even want to mix with them. Yet bigots always come looking for trouble to belittle and to fight with those that cause them no harm. Thus, the need for self-defense not only in Brazil but in every country in the world where that is happening.
Well, even if you aren't LGBTQ you can be attacked by random people or people targeting you for any reason. So suffice it to say that it is wise that everyone learn some self defense, despite bigotry. But overall this is a great thing to do for people who need it.
