Protect Your Kids By Providing Them With The Skills To Protect Themselves
At Black Belt 4 Life, we want every one of our children to be safe. As a karate studio, we work hard to instill a strong sense of self in all of our students. This self-confidence is key to self-defense. We believe that all children in the Lexington community should have the skills to recognize dangerous situations and to keep themselves safe.
Our desire for our children to be safe is the reason we offer a specially designed Kid Safe workshop at Black Belt 4 Life. Our special seminar, designed for both kids and their parents, is built upon a thorough understanding of self-defense. We've worked hard to understand current research about the dangers that kids face and how they can keep themselves safe.
As parents, we've spent years teaching our children to be aware of and stay away from strangers. While this is an important lesson, statistics indicate that this concept is very hard for kids to understand. Many child abductions are carried out by someone who a child knows or has met before. It is very easy for children to confuse a trusted adult with someone they believe is a friend of their family.
Experts agree that teaching children to look out for a certain type of person is an ineffective way to ensure a child's safety. Instead, focus should be placed on building a child's self-confidence and awareness of his or her surroundings. In our Kid Safe workshops, we teach kids how to properly respond to a variety of potentially dangerous situations. Paired with strong self-confidence and awareness, these skills can keep kids safe in a sometimes scary world.
We strive to teach good self-awareness during our Kid Safe workshops. We will also teach your child how to effectively defend him or herself against many types of chokes and grabs commonly used by attackers. Your child will also learn that his or her voice is one of the best self-defense tools that he or she possesses.
Please take a few minutes to call us today at 803-358-2245 to enroll yourself, your children and their friends in our next Kid Safe seminar. We look forward to helping your child learn essential self-preservation skills!
