It teaches kids what to do in dangerous or stranger-danger situations. They learn how to fight off an attacker, how to yell "Get Back, You're not my mom!" and pepper the aggressor in the eyes with their fingers and do shin kicks.
|Kick him, Get away! Scream "No, No, you're NOT my dad!"|
|They were with us every step of the way, helping us, coaching us, yelling what to do!|
|Our principal came to our graduation, explaining the program to parents.|
They learn to scream if anybody were to grab them and strategies to get away if they are grabbed by a stranger. They also learn fire and gun safety rules, the importance of wearing seat belts and a bike helmet, and how it is OK to tell if somebody is hurting you. Nobody has the right to hurt you. They start out each day reciting that.
|Practicing all our moves together, "high hammer!", "block!"|
|Get him Grace! Pepper his eyes!|
|Yay! Cambria got away, go girl! Everyone cheers for you. It is VERY EMPOWERING!|
|Even the quiet, shy kids learn to yell and become fierce! I like that. Everybody cheers for their classmates!|
|Go! Get away! You can do it! Parents all watch from the chairs.|
