Self Defense for Young Teens
The young teen self defense class integrates the mind-body-spirit into developing skills for self-protection and avoidance of danger.
▪ Physically, students practice full force fights against the assailant that include boundary setting by applying the gentle art of verbal self-defense and conflict de-escalation. They will also have numerous full force drills before they practice against the assailant.
▪ Mentally, we address the tactics predators most often use to lure and then victimize young teens. We focus on both deception and pressure lures that predators and manipulators apply to isolate their victims.
▪ Emotionally, we merge the physical and mental into the fighting spirit needed for effective self-protection. When students understand the ploys and tactics, they simultaneously begin to build their fighting spirit.
Though our Teenage Self Defense course is shorter than our Black Belt System course, the dynamics of the Model Mugging system improves teenage self-esteem by teaching teens to fight back. This is the quickest and best self defense teens can experience. Tactics taught to teens work for developing self-confidence, especially for stopping bullying.
