Kidpower Safety and Self-Defense 'On Your Own' Workshop for ages 9-14 with their adults 

"My kids loved the self-defense practice with the padded instructor - and I have more peace of mind!"

 Prepare youth to stay safe as they gain independence in the world both in-person and online! In this workshop, families with kids ages 9 to 14 practice “People Safety” skills to prevent problems and improve communication with peers, family, strangers, and others wherever they might go. People Safety skills help kids when by themselves, with groups of friends, or with their adults. In this class, kids will also prac-tice physical self-defense skills for emergencies, using their ‘full force’ power with an instructor wearing a protective “suit.”

Using examples and activities relevant to kids 9-14, we’ll practice skills to:

  • Stay aware, calm, respectful, and confident
  • Make a safety plan for everywhere you go, in person and online
  • Recognize and take action to avoid unsafe behavior
  • Develop effective Stranger Safety habits 
  • Set clear and appropriate boundaries
  • Stay in charge of your actions and words
  • Be persistent in getting help from busy adults
  • Protect yourself from hurtful words and other emotional assaults
  • Check First with an adult before changing the plan
  • Use physical self-defense skills in an emergency, with youth having realistic practice team-taught by a coaching instructor and a full-force instructor wearing a protective suit.
