Q&A Personal Safety Strategies
MISSING:  Antionette Martiznez
We are in a rural district and don't have the problems of the urban schools. How would we benefit from this training?
Anyone who may ever come into contact with assaultive behavior can benefit from this training. Our young people will leave the safe confines of our communities for travel, higher education, and to seek employment.

Our School is trying to reduce violence. How can teaching physical techniques fit in with our philosophy?
The emphasis of the Personal Safety Strategies program is non-violent resolution and situational avoidance. By teaching personal safety, students build the self confidence to avoid minor conflicts while being able to protect themselves with minimal force when it becomes necessary.

I don't think I can do the fancy kicks or moves I see in martial arts, how can I teach them?
Most importantly, Personal Safety Strategies doesn't teach "karate." While many of the techniques are martial arts based, the flashy moves take years to master. You will learn simple, effective defenses that have no high kicks or punches. All techniques are instinctive, easily reproducible, and can be learned with a few short repetitions.

Budgets are tight, how can we justify the costs of adding this program?
For less than $1 per student today, we can train your entire P.E. faculty and supply the curriculum to service your entire student body for years to come.

How Can We Find the Funds to Invest in This Program?
Grant monies such as "Safe and Drug Free Schools" or the "Carol M. White Physical Education Grants" are two sources which help fund teacher training programs such as Personal Safety Strategies.

What our participants are saying:

“This was not what I expected and was very helpful. It offers a different mindset that is important for safety. It planted a very good seed.”
