A parent is required to attend and participate in any youth class: parent participation is optional for the 13-17 age group (attendance is still required). Parents will be paired up with their child to role play and perform self-defense techniques.

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.

Class prerequisite: none
