Self-Defense for Teens  

Teens are looking to increase their independence. They will need to take care of themselves while exploring and engaging in rich, fulfilling lives. They are out more with friends, teams, bands. They (or their friends) are driving. They may be dating. They may have part-time jobs and a new social environment that goes with employment. They are exploring the world, mostly without direct adult supervision.

On top of that, you may be concerned about social pressure and a cultural environment that romanticizes unhealthy relationship behavior. They could use some skills to help augment the experience they are acquiring. In this class, your emerging young adult will learn to recognize “red flags” that someone may mean harm, plan safe exits from iffy situation, practice physical moves (just in case), and learn to find supportive self-care.

Your teen will get honest, accurate answers in a safe space. In 3 hours, they will learn: • How to protect themselves when dates get scary • Red flags that they needs to call home NOW • Surprise moves to get free if grabbed from behind • How to stay safe and still have fun at parties, athletic events, and class activities

This class is for teens of all genders, ages 15-17.

** Registration for teen class must be made under participating student's name.

NOTE: This may require creating a new profile for the registration.
