New York City Young Teen Self Defense Class: October 22, 2017
The Young Teen Self Defense Program is 6 hours of training designed for intermediate ages, usually ages 12 to 15. A children’s program would be too elementary, but they are not ready for our comprehensive Basic Self Defense course.
This Model Mugging course for young teens covers potential threats and ploys that predators use, de-escalation and conflict resolution, physical skills, and when to use the skills appropriately. The young teenagers will physical practice their learned skills against the padded assailant, which provides students with full force self defense fighting experience.
If they are ever threatened with violent threats, students need realistic experiences to enhance their performance under the stress of an attack. They also need to understand the proper context of personal protection and be willing to use the skills when necessary. The combined mind-body-spirit experience Model Mugging self defense training provides naturally develop as an empowering process in students.
Turn Fear into Power!
Young teens learn to work with their feelings of fear in naturally fearful situations, but most importantly channel this powerful energy force into action toward safer options. Students will be taught the ploys predators use to manipulate victims into isolation from family, combined with options to evade predator tactics. Defense against grabs, boundary setting, and abduction defense will be practiced.
Students strike full-force to the padded attacker!
The young teen self defense class is not a substitute for our comprehensive Basic course, which is ideal of women 16 and older.
