Children's Self Defense for Internet Safety Tips, Stranger Awareness and Abduction Prevention

Children's Self Defense for Internet Safety Tips, Stranger Awareness and Abduction Prevention
Children's Self Defense and Safety Tips for Internet Safety, Abduction Prevention, Kids Self Protection

Be Alert
Kids: Trust your feelings and intuition.  Fear is a survival signal to alert us to dangers in our immediate environment.
Parents: Teach children to trust this gut feeling and take action to change their circumstances.  Teach them what to look for in a dangerous situation and discuss options for escape.

Be Armed
Kids: It is important to be trained in how to use your survival skills, safety smarts and street savvy thinking.  Your best weapon is a trained mind.  It's OK to say NO! - even to adults when it comes to safety.
Parents: Teach children to recognize dangerous situations so that they are alerted to potential danger and armed with skills to get to safety.  Encourage open communication and have safety chats often.

Role Play
What would you do if...
Play the "opposite game".  If you are told to do something by a suspicious person, you should do the opposite.  "Be quiet.", means to be as loud as you can.  "Come with me.", means to escape and avoid going with them at all costs.  "Don't tell" means to tell immediately.  "Stop fighting me." means to keep fighting as hard as you can.  "Don't run or try to get away." means run and get away.  Bad guys often tell you what to do to best escape.  Are you listening?

Imagine Your Son or Daughter With Unshakable Confidence, Inner-Strength, Fit, Focused, and Strong Discipline.  That's what one Phoenix Martial Arts school does for children.

Build Leadership and Life Skills That Give Kids an Edge
Unlike most karate dojos and other martial arts schools, our classes are taught by experienced Master Instructors, champions and highly trained instructors with ongoing teacher training. We have built a solid reputation for providng high quality and results-driven, and character-based instruction in exciting and motivational classes filled with both high energy and discipline.

Experience The USA Martial Arts & Kickboxing Phoenix Difference

  • Better Training
  • More Opportunity
  • Award-Winning Curriculum
  • World-Class Instruction
  • Higher Quality

Be Strong, Fit and Focused
Physical fitness and mental discipline training are highly emhasized in our curriculum. We believe the martial arts is not just about the ‘punching and kicking’. It is about teaching life skills and personal development by means of the physical training. But don’t misunderstand, students will learn how to ‘punch and kick’ and use their self-defense skills properly and effectively, but it is not a quick process. It takes time and we hope for all our students to truly enjoy and appreciate the time it takes as they see themselves learning, growing, and achieving more for themselves.

Help your child develop extraordinary strength, confidence, focus, respect and courtesy. They won't get these things by sitting on the coach, watching tv or playing video games.

The best way to understand is to SEE FOR YOURSELF! Come watch or TRY A FREE INTRODUCTORY CLASS and you’ll be convinced. We highly encourage you to shop around and compare…everyone ALWAYS COMES BACK TO US! (Note: However,we are selective and do not accept just any student; you must qualify. If you are thinking of us as a drop-off baby-sitting facility or just giving your child something to do in between a million other sports and activities, or a quick-fix to a behavioral issue your child may have, you may not qualify. Students and families join our academy because they have specific needs and desires to achieve, learn, or improve their character, mind & body.

To qualify for any of our programs, we only require a true desire to try and learn the martial arts properly and then commitment.

We can and will help you and your child, but as parents you need to have the proper mindset and commitment level first. As we work closely together for the benefit or your child…YOU WILL SEE RESULTS! Grades and behavior WILL IMPROVE! They can and WILL improve in other sports too! Real-life statistics over the last 25 years PROVE that children who go through our program at our school have achieved more and developed the right habits and character to continue succeeding because we are constantly influencing and reinforcing them together with committed parents.)

Come SEE FOR YOURSELF! Come watch or take advantage of our awesome WEBSPECIAL and you’ll be convinced.  Even if we're not the right school for you we will do out best to help you find the right sport, activity or place for your child.  We look forward to meeting you!
