I thought it a beautiful thing that a father and daughter could bond through martial arts. It is a sad state of affairs when a healthy parent/child relationship is demonized because of the sport they choose to involve themselves in. I see nothing wrong with a loving family that can feasibly stand up for themselves with no weapons other than their own bodies.
Remember, peaceniks, even Ghandi said that if you must choose between violence and cowardice, choose violence. Violence in and of itself is nothing to be hated. It is the misapplication of violence that is to be abhored. And whether you like it or not, if you rely on 911 in case of an emergency, you are participating in a violent soiciety. Better to take some martial arts training and rest easy then rely on a system that uses guns and tasers to insure tranquility. Hell, take your kid along. That way, if you are not at home, they can rest easy also. You might even bond in the process.
