Book Description

April 15 2013 1484121899 978-1484121894
One strong move stops most attacks! Learn the simple and effective self-defense strategies and tactics our nonprofit organization uses to prepare teens and adults to protect themselves from emotional and physical assaults. You can incorporate these lessons into your own self-defense training or into workshops you teach to others. This book provides 150 pages of lessons, including cartoon-illustrated teaching tips and aids, to make learning and practices easy, safe, and engaging.

This is a useful and interesting resource for martial artists, self-defense instructors, public safety officials, and middle or high school physical education teachers - as well as anyone who is interested in learning more about self-defense. Although the focus of the book is on training teens and adults, it also provides information on how to adapt these lessons for teaching children.

According to Gavin de Becker, leading expert worldwide on the prediction and management of violence and best-selling author of "The Gift of Fear" and "Protecting the Gift", "Kidpower has an exceptional track record in the field of personal safety and violence prevention. Kidpower helps to reduce worry by promoting confidence and personal power."

David Harrison MD, says he became "acutely aware of the reality of personal violence" in his work as an emergency physician and has been teaching self-defense for more than a decade in Vancouver, BC. According to Dr. Harrison, "The clear and entertaining lessons make teaching physical self-defense to teens and adults a simpler task. This will be especially helpful in preparing martial artists and other teachers to use the positive and effective Teenpower and Fullpower curriculum to teach self-defense in their schools."

In this book, you will find cartoon-illustrated lessons for learning and teaching these strategies and techniques:

  • Awareness and target denial to avoid an assault.
  • Physical self-defense skills to escape from an attack.
  • Defense against weapons, chokes, punches, and multiple attackers.
  • Verbal self-defense tactics to de-escalate a confrontation.
