Youth Self-Defense Training

It’s never too early to teach kids how to defend themselves. After all, you won’t always be there to protect them. Once they’re old enough to go out into the world by themselves, they should learn the basics of self-defense. And that’s exactly why Vital Vigilance urges parents to sign their kids up for our youth self-defense classes!

Serving families in Annapolis, Davidsonville, Washington, D.C., and beyond, we offer self-defense training for youth ages 12-18. Our young adult self-defense course is mobile, as well, so we can bring our classes to local schools, community centers, churches, and anywhere else where kids feel safe.

For your peace of mind, our self-defense instructor has 20+ years of experience in the field and knows how to speak and relate to today’s youth. Through interactive, hands-on demonstrations, we’ll teach your kids about:

  • Situational awareness and trusting their gut
  • Staying in a group whenever possible
  • The importance of walking away when something doesn’t feel right
  • Making noise and attracting attention (rather than being quiet and submissive)
  • Freeing themselves from someone’s grip
  • Blocking punches and hits
  • Getting away and calling for help
  • And much more

Don’t you want to prepare your child for the real world? Our youth self-defense program will arm them with the powerful techniques and strategies they need to stay safe in these crazy times. Call now for more information!

Self-Defense Classes for Teen Girls

As a parent, you might worry about your teen daughter going out on her own. That’s why you need to give her the strength, presence of mind, and effective skills she’ll need to protect herself and take control in any situation.

Our youth self-defense classes will fortify your daughter with the empowerment she requires and deserves to carry herself through her daily life. You’ll feel better, and she’ll be safer. It’s a true win-win.

Anti-Bullying Self-Defense Classes

For kids who are being bullied at school, life can be miserable. And when that bullying gets physical, the situation becomes downright scary. No parent wants to see their child suffer through that.

This is why Vital Vigilance offers anti-bullying classes to help kids defend themselves. We don’t condone or encourage fighting, but every child deserves to learn basic self-defense skills for emergency situations. And that’s exactly what our bullying defense program teaches.

When you register your kid for our basic bullying defense class, we’ll show them how to:

  • Demonstrate confidence through body language
  • Use the buddy system when possible
  • Speak with a strong, commanding voice
  • Deescalate and diffuse situations
  • Walk away when their gut tells them to
  • Deflect hits
  • Look for escape routes
  • Call for help

The ability to protect themselves will boost their self-confidence, and they’ll carry this self-sufficiency all the way through high school, college, and the workplace. In other words, anti-bullying self-defense for youths makes for better prepared adults, as well.

So, give your child the ability to hold their head high, walk with pride, and feel empowered in all of their daily interactions. Sign up for our youth anti-bullying classes and self-defense classes today!
