Why people resist learning self defense

Fear Some people believe that if they study self defense that by acknowledging their vulnerability and that they could be assaulted at some time
It won't happen to me  This is another way of saying "I am afraid."
A job for police The police are few and have too many responsibilities. As a result they cannot protect everyone.
Feel foolish  People think they will be doing techniques that make them look and feel foolish. Learning a self defense drill is like doing a fire drill - it may have to be put to use.
Too busy  Time and convenience are often used to avoid learning self defense. When people use this excuse they are saying that self defense is not high on their list of priorities while they have time for other activities.
It's too hard to learn  When properly taught, effective self defense techniques are easy to learn and contain few movements.
