Why self defense are not taught compulsory in school?

Everyday there are reports on robbery, rape, killing, etc. What happens to these strangers can also happen to us. We are not guarded 24 hours by personal guard. We are not celebrity or politicians. We are just common people who go out to work in the morning and come back home in the evening. There are millions of people living here in Malaysia alone. Do we even have at least 1 million police to cover all the crimes that happen everyday?

There are areas that are classified as “Red Area”. Which means if you go to this place, there are high chances that you will get killed or robbed. Why crimes keep happening at the same place? Why police are not patrolling in that area? Is it because they are being paid bribes so that they don’t do their work? Just like in movies. Maybe there are just so many such cases that police are not able to cope up. The cases outnumber the police. Is that the case?

We are being taught religion at school. We are being taught science at school. We are being taught moral studies at school. Is that enough to fight rape? Is the law not strict enough to fight these monsters? If it is not strict, then why aren’t we approving stricter law to fight them? The perpetrator are not afraid of the existing law.

I remember when I was a kid, there was a self defense class taught in school. My brother was sent to this class but myself and my sister were not sent. I don’t blame my parents because they are not rich to be able to pay the fees. Looking at the number of crimes happening everyday makes me wonder, “Why self defense not taught in school as a compulsory subject?”

Imagine all the kids are taught self defence in school. They are taught when to use and why they use self defense. Will bully happen among kids and students? They will know how to defend themselves. At the same time, good manners are taught to kids from young age. If they are being attacked, they will know how to protect themselves. The police will have lesser cases relating to robbery, rape and killing.

You might be wondering why am I writing on this. I have been thinking a lot about this. Especially now I’m teaching spiritual values in Tamil school, I realized some kids are troublemaker. They like to vandalize things, hit their friends and make noise for fun. It is really difficult to control them. When it is difficult to control them now, do you think it will be easy to control them when they are adult? It will be impossible. The right age to start educating is when they are still kids. Another issue cropping up now is parents don’t want their kids to be punished and blaming the teachers for little punishment (I will write this separately).

I know nothing is gonna change by just writing this. I just want to let out my frustration. I am not a politician or someone with influence to be able to do something to change this system. I am just a normal human being who wished things can be improved in a better way so that we can live in a more peaceful environment.
