      Teen Girls Self Defense Classes

      Let's face it: Talking to kids about safety is tough. But, as your children mature, you want them to take care of themselves while living rich, full lives.

      Strategic Safety Classes are designed to help you begin a dialogue and find the right words to communicate in a loving, non-alarming way.

      Mother-Daughter Self-Defense: Women of all ages, their mothers and their daughters come together to learn about pressing issues facing each generation. Each class will be tailored to the needs of participants.

      One participant said, "Thank you thank you thank you. What an experience! You are a marvel." Another remarked, "This class didn't stop at the end of the day. It opened up productive, life-changing conversations in our home."

      And from one custom class organizer:

      Just a little "Thank You" from all of us gals! Your class ignited a lot of conversation on the drive home. And many more to come. We thought you were clear, informative, and definately a confidence builder for both the moms and the daughters. Having us all in a group setting was safe for the girls but really comforting for the moms to bring up topics we definitely talk about at home...but awesome to hear girls talk about it and moms reassured that their own peers are feeling the same way is priceless.

      Your tools were simple and easy to remember and your thought process on the "why's" of why we find ourselves in certain situations was very clear. Loved the clothes line!

      Thanks again...we will definately be passing your information on to our friends!

      Classes are Ongoing! offered every Wednesday and Fridays at 6:00pm at Danvers Martial Arts 20 Locust Street Danvers Mass 01923.

      What to expect, and do, when you get to high school or college
      How stay safe and still have fun at parties, athletic events and class activities

      One parent's comment: "my daughter was in your class on Sunday morning and I wanted to let you know how much she and her friend enjoyed it and found it invaluable. When I got them in the car to drive home, they didn’t shut their mouths. She showed me many of the moves after we got home and was totally psyched. Thank you so much – I am a middle school counselor and one thing that is crucial for me is to help young women feel empowered. You certainly did that for my daughter – thanks so much for what you do."

      KidsSafetyClasses, Bully Free Classes,

      Keep the magic of childhood safe in this low-key, friendly and age-appropriate class for girls and boys 5-9. A single 1 1/2 hour session works with young attention spans. In the first segment we will role-play in a non-threatening environment some of the common approaches used by perpetrators who target children. Children will practice the ‘five fingers’ approach: think, yell, get free, run, and tell. In the second part we will look at tactics that child molesters use to gain access to children through parents, and community resources available for your safety needs. Parents learn tools to continue the conversation, as well as to sort through all the information and misinformation on keeping their children safe. Learn about risks facing your kids, how to frame the discussion with children, and recognizing when someone may be targeting your family.

      Cost: $20.00 per class
