Have you had to defend your home?

I am catching up on email (sorry for whomever has emailed and not gotten a polite and timely response), and on threads at the Convocation of Martial Arts, and came upon a thread entitled, "How would you defend yourself in your home?" Excellent! Read through the whole thing, then post if you like, but I'd like to ask a more pertinent question that can be a learning experience for us all:

Have you ever had to defend your home? Rather, have you ever been in a situation where you've faced an intruder and, successfully or unsuccessfully defended yourself? If so, this isn't a theoretical situation for you, and you can help thousands of the readers of this blog and the partner sites at CoCA. Please reply via comment, or better yet, at the Have you HAD to defend your home? thread there.


  1. What happened?
  2. Why do you think it happened, or why were you vulnerable?
  3. What would you do differently?
  4. Any other advice for readers on this subject?

Many thanks,
