“Kids are one of the easiest targets for bad guys. They are smaller, lighter, weaker and more trusting, this makes them a ‘soft target’. However, they can protect themselves by learning equalizing techniques and being prepared if something might happen. Kicking, punching and traditional martial arts are all great but are not enough when facing a larger, stronger adult attacker. For this reason, you need tactical, reality based self-defense training regardless of age or gender to stop a real threat outside of a sport environment.”
At MA Fitness, we believe in teaching kids how to defend themselves, making them feel powerful and able to stand bullies.
Systematically and chronically inflicting physical hurt or psychological distress on one or more students or employees that is severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment; or unreasonably interfere with the individual’s school performance or participation.
Kids Self Defense in St Petersburg, FLPLEASE SHARE: Children will not receive this training in schools. Training for an attack or situation like this might mean the difference between your child safely returning home or them being caught in a dangerous place.In this scenario the child must break free of an attacker that has a wrist grab on him/her then run through a series of movements where they must think to execute motor skills under stress. Lastly they enter a mock room where they must locate a phone and call 911 to describe what is happening. #selfdefense #kickboxing #martialarts #antibully
