I'm curious of one thing.....

Do parents in china see value in having their children learn self-defense?

You maybe would. I wouldn't, it could probably only make the things worst, for me. I am not trained and I doubt I could face a person in a rampage state with a knife. I would though try to throw something at him or call the police.
As for your second statement, yes, many get trained in China in some type or other of martial arts.

Well I don't know how you could of made it worse, the woman was killed right?

Just yelling and drawing public attention could be enough to stop a guy like this, I doubt he would have the courage to face a whole crowd.  The coward attacked a woman, keep that in mind.

Back in the 80's the prevailing thought for rape defense was no defense - thinking that you could get more seriously injured or killed for fighting. All that thinking did was to make it easier on the attacker.

Screw all that.  You have to fight.  You have to make noise.  You have to do some kind of action.

Maybe the lady is too weak to fight back, should let her be armed with a pistol?

What is quite suprising is that in those 5 minutes, the police are nowhere to be seen, and it looks  ...

I thought in a country with death penalty such things cannot happen, because of deterrence?

Nutters and criminals exist in countries with and without the death penalty.

In my country, Spain, there is no death penalty and some 50 to 60 women get killed every year by their spouses and/or relatives.

The turmoil would come, if mainland Chinese can buy guns (Pistols) as easily as what in U.S.A.
It is the common sense of we Chinese.

Why?

Is our society really harmonious?

Were people around us forced by power abuse of many leaders to be harmonized in the past few years?  
our life is full of sunshine
