Loss or injury of a family member to a violent crime is devastating. I believe most crimes can be stopped with a little understanding and knowledge. In my 25 years as a police officer, I have seen what happens when a child is abused, when a teen aged girl is victimized, when a college student is robbed, when a woman is stalked, or when a senior citizen is attacked. It not only victimizes the person attacked, but the whole family and community at large.
Most crime incidents, if detected early, can be stopped in their tracks with a few simple techniques. Our programs focus on awareness, avoidance, and simple self defense techniques to discourage a criminal from attacking you or a family member.
We have programs for every age group.
KidsSafetyParty.com – For boys and girls ages 4-8 years old, the program can be taught anywhere, indoors and outdoors, in a school, in park, or even in a backyard. In this 60 minute program, we focus on helping children understand that most people are good, and that there are many adults who can help them. However, there are a few bad apples, and we show them how to identify bad people through behavior. Then we give them a reaction plan. We also focus on fire safety and bullying during our time with the kids.
SafeKids.training is our kids personal safety and self defense seminar where we help kids develop awareness and avoidance skills, while building them up with confidence through discovering simple self defense skills for kids ages 6-10.

We employ the “tell, show, do” method of teaching, so each technique is hard wired when needed.
