What is Self-Defense?

Self-defense is what you use when someone makes you feel:

Uncomfortable

Afraid

Uneasy

Threatened

Self-Defense does NOT always mean “fight.”

Self-Defense also means run away, using words and screaming, and preventing yourself from being in a bad situation. 

When you are with your family and/or friends

  1. Stay in the group. Bad guys like to get you away so it’s easier to take you.
  2. If you get lost, look for an adult female for help. An adult female with children is even better.
  3. Do NOT engage in speaking with an adult you don’t know. Do not get close to the adult. Use distance as your defense by running away.
