Level 2


1.5 hour class

12 student limit per classes

Intro to Victim Proof is the first class in a series of non-firearm self-defense courses.  This 1.5 hour course teaches students how to avoid, escape, and defend against common everyday threats by combining situational awareness and Jui-Jitsu fundamentals.  It is designed for students of any age, size, or physical ability.

Intro to Victim Proof is available for age groups 5-12 & 13-17, so please be sure you're registering your child for the correct age group.  A parent is required to attend and participate with their child in the 

5-12 age group.  Parent  attendance and participation are not required in the 13-17 age group--you may drop off your children and use our range or leave the facility.  There are no prerequisites or prior experience required for attending this class. 

Class Description:

This situation awareness and self-defense class has a focus on empowering the children in our community with the ability to become bully proof and victim proof. This class is intended for both children and a parent, which promotes at home discussion and takes learned techniques out of the classroom and into real life.

Part 1: Situation Awareness & Avoiding Danger

Students and parents will learn how to avoid vulnerability and danger when in real-world situations, including walking to and from school/friends/park, waiting at a bus stop, being cornered by a bully, and more. An emphasis is placed on avoidance of high threat locations, reducing the risk of being targeted, and red flags for understanding when an attacker is approaching or in direct (verbal or physical) contact. Additionally, students will discuss “the bubble” and maintaining personal space, and zero tolerance policies as it pertains to school and home (answering the door, telephone, etc).

Part 2: Jiu Jitsu & Self-Defense Techniques

In the event a child cannot avoid a dangerous situation, and find themselves in the face of danger, they are prepared with physical techniques influenced through Jiu Jitsu, including:

• Defending against a standing attacker

• Escaping from a standing attacker

• Proper stance and movement while under duress

• Handling pushing and pulling

• Defending and escaping from all variants of wrist grabs

• Defending and escaping an embracing attacker (hugs)

• Defending and escaping chokes or grabs around the neck (front and rear)

This curriculum will instill our student with confidence, strength, dignity, and the ability to sense danger and react to it without further putting themselves or others at risk. Physical self-defense techniques also lead their way towards a more agile, aware, and able bodied athlete, including techniques valuable in contact sports like football, soccer, wrestling, and more. Additionally, these classes build self-respect, self-worth and unity among their peers and community.
