During this class students will learn the most important thing I have learned in my 15 years of training in kung fu. Contrary to popular belief, it is not some special movement, it is learning to be aware of my surroundings. To do this, I will introduce a game that will help to focus that awareness. Following this we will interactively discuss different scenarios involving stranger interaction. We will discuss the dos and don't s involved when dealing with people they do not know. There will...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn a game that will help them to become more aware of their surroundings. They will learn the proper way to respond when someone they don't know attempts to interact with them. They will also learn how to draw as much attention to themselves as possible, if by chance a stranger does manage to get a hold of them.
I have trained in kung fu for 15 years. I have also taught kung-fu for at least 12 years to students who ranged in age from 4 - 68 years old. During that time, I have taught multiple in person classes on safety around strangers to young people.
No additional homework is required. Though I would encourage them to practice both the activity to increase awareness of their surroundings and how to yell with intention.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will be discussing techniques to avoid being hurt or kidnapped by a stranger. I would encourage the parent or guardian to assist with practicing how to yell with intention. Unfortunately, in crises situations, all people, not just children tend to panic and freeze up. The more a child practices this, the more natural it will become, and the more likely they are to actually do it when necessary. My goal is to keep your child as safe as possible, by teaching them some skills to be more aware around strangers.
