Children and teenagers are often more vulnerable to physical attacks. Hence, picking up a practical, high level self-defense skill is important for any situations that they may stumble across in their everyday life. The Krav Maga Global Kids training will teach them realistic self-defense techniques that are effective not only against bullies, but any adult assailant as well.
The curriculum includes solutions to conflicts or violent situations that are most typical for each age group. Common situations they will learn to deal with include slaps, punches, kicks, shirt grabbing, neck grabbing, choking, and being thrown to the ground. Children and youth are taught to recognize possible danger situations, the best way to avoid them, and protect themselves against any physical attack.
This is also important in the case where they might be attacked by adults in criminal assaults or sexual abuse. Children and teenagers will be taught the most effective way of defending against a much stronger adult, escaping, and also to report the incident to an authority figure.
Children also learn important skills such as break-falling and rolling that will help them to fall safely. Apart from danger situations, this can come in useful when they are playing, whether it is running, skating or cycling.
HOW WE TEACH KRAV MAGA FOR KIDS AND TEENS
Just like Krav Maga Global lessons for adults, we teach children in an efficient and fun way so they can better defend themselves at school, in the playground or on the street. We also place emphasis on the development of important personality traits such as self-discipline and self-confidence. Children and youth learn the ability to make decisions in stressful situations and knowing to use fighting techniques at the right time.
Training is carried out by qualified instructors who have gone through specific training for children, and is conducted in a safe environment with safety measures to minimize the risk of injury.
THE KIDS’ INSTRUCTOR COURSE (KIC)
The KIC equips instructors with educational methods, training and tools to teach Krav Maga and self-defense techniques to youth. Candidates for this course must be certified instructors (GIC) with at least one year of teaching experience and possess a strong inclination for the field.
