The child abduction course is taught in conjunction with our Women’s Assault Prevention course. Mothers are encouraged to bring their children for the follow on Child Abduction Prevention course.
The children’s abduction course begins with 2 hours on our A.W.A.R.E. system (preventing putting yourself in a bad situation) and then the children move to another training area and go through the anti-bullying and stranger danger program. They learn basic strikes and escape techniques and then fight the “Redman.” (One of our instructors in a padded training suit)
The moms, after the A.W.A.R.E presentation continue with the adult prevention part of the course which includes basic strikes and escapes. The moms participate in the “Redman” exercise too. At the end course, we bring them all back together and conduct attack scenarios with the “Redman” and the mom’s and their children both participate.
