Martial Women from history

Edith Margaret Garrud was among the first female professional martial arts instructors in the Western world. She is remembered for having trained the Bodyguard Unit of the Women's Social and Political Union in jujutsu self-defense techniques.

I read lots of articles about punching and the jury still seems to be out on whether punching is advisable or not in a self defence situation. Generally speaking if you have not taken time to condition your hands to impact, perhaps on a heavy bag or some kind of strike pad, then punching is not your best option in a fight.
