Join this extremely important class and learn how to avoid and escape a kidnapping. We will learn about lures, self defense, escaping restraints, escaping the trunk of a car, and how to act if unable to escape.

Class experience

My experience includes 4 years of U.S. Coast Guard experience, where one of my duties included federal law enforcement. I have trained with several different local, state and federal law enforcement agencies on kidnapping prevention, situational awareness, survival psychology, and urban survival. I was also a fire fighter for 10 years where we often partnered with local law enforcement to talk to children about stranger danger. I meet with local law enforcement officials monthly on new developments on kidnappings and statistics.
1.) Stranger Danger and kidnapping prevention and escape will be taught (very much tailored to younger audiences)
2.) I talk about self defense how to quickly and effectively fight off a potential kidnapper.
3.) I do not talk to students as to any reasons why kidnappers kidnap children, besides ransom money. I leave that up to the parents. 
4.) I will also briefly discuss simple "less than lethal" weapons that most jurisdictions allow a child to carry, like pepper spray, or collapsible baton. 

*By no means do I ever talk about firearms*
