The Montvale Police Department has asked us to teach the self-defense portion of their newly launched Jr. Police Academy; a youth program for 7th and 8th Graders in Montvale NJ.
We are honored to once again help our community as we empower young people with the concept that “no one can protect you as good as you can protect yourself”.
In about a one hour time period we will unleash their human potential and give them the tools they need of thinking smart, being bold and confident and making good decisions. It’s smart to introduce them to an intelligent curriculum of a sense of awareness of things that really hurt people such as one’s own diet, one’s own attitude and young impressionable minds being manipulated by others such as through commercial marketing or unhealthy peer pressure.
Of course we’ll teach kicking and punching and other physical defense techniques of the martial arts but I would be remised as a knowledgable and experienced self-defense educator if I neglected to prepare young people that we protect ourselves with our knowledge, our thinking, and our ability to make good decisions based on principles and our conscience rather than emotion, popular belief or ignorance.
Also, we are going to have lot’s of fun and lot’s of smiles.
