Re: Most common attacks against women? Self defense class research
My thought (which more or less agrees with what Michael says) is that the most meaningful statistics would be local ones ("local", in both the geographic and demographic sense, to the population you want to serve). A young woman I know went off to college last year. She had practiced aikido pretty much her whole life, but I still pulled her coat and talked to her very frankly about date rape, which (as I see it) is the biggest danger facing her. Kotegaeshi doesn't work on roofies.
