I wouldn't say that it's necessary to carry around a ton of weapons to defend oneself nor is it useful to be paranoid.

However, it is useful to see that anything you have in your hand (whether it be a stainless steel coffee mug or a pen) can be used as a weapon. I would say that if you find a Filipino style that emphasizes learning how to effectively use weapons (and your body) versus disarming, you might want to at least give it a try.

That said, it's also not just the style but finding an instructor that your wife likes and wants to learn from.
