Safety Pointers for Kids

The full Via Potentia program is really intended for adults and more mature youth. "Self defense" for kids is primarily about avoidance, escape and dealing with bullies. Children really have no chance of being able to deal with the power that a full-grown male adult can bring to bear, so there isn't much point in teaching them techniques that are reserved for adults. Instead, we emphasize general conditioning and sport application in the classes for younger kids. This can help them develop strength, confidence and skills that can assist them in school or when dealing with bullies.

Following are some of the mental points that we try to express to kids:

We welcome comments, questions and suggestions for improvement.
