Monterey, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2005
"For a fighting chance." ThatÂs the motto of selfdefenseforums.com. The interactive web forum dedicated to the subject of self-defense and personal protection went online in December 2001. Now, 4 years old it continues to grow daily. "We have over 5800 registered members with new users signing up all the time. We expect the trend to continue as word of the website spreads," says forum founder and self-defense advocate James Perdue.
Perdue, like many, noticed an increased public interest in self-defense and related topics but his search for information through the internet yielded little in the way of useful content. So, he decided to develop his own self-defense based web page "I wanted to create a website where people could find information about self-defense and personal protection but I also wanted it to be interactive; the forums were the perfect solution."
The forums provide a wealth of information relating to the topic of self-defense with subject specific sections including "Martial Arts" and "Womens self-defense." There is even a section dedicated to avoiding common scams. The subjects are cross referenced and searchable making it easy for readers to find specific information.
One forum member who goes by the handle "Kanseg" posted the following in response to a user poll:
"I seriously consider this to be one of the better forums. There are serious people ready to discuss the realities of self-defense with a sensible, realistic attitude.
When asked to what he attributes the growing interest in self-defense Perdue says;
"I think that the current world climate coupled with fear of domestic terrorism have awakened in people a desire to feel safer and a willingness to be proactive about it. Our site brings together like-minded people as well as professionals from law enforcement, martial arts, and personal protection industries."
