Self-Defense does not always mean fight back. 

Three Types of Self-Defense
1. Verbal
2. Mental
3. Physical

When a dangerous situation happens, you must be able to:

1. Think your way out
2. Talk your way out
3. Fight your way out

Three Types of Bad Guys:


Bully: A person who does not hide the fact that they are trying to boss you around, intimidate you, or threaten you. Bullies are usually jealous people who pick on others to feel better about themselves. Bullies usually are not physically violent and just want to put you in fear to get what they want.

Predator: The most dangerous criminal (bad guy) you can run across is the predator. They are aggressive, violent, dangerous, and worst of all, they are hard to see. Predators will act like a normal person to get close enough to what they want. This is their camouflage and when they get close enough, they attack. The predator is often so hard to see by the time you figure them out, it is too late.

Wolf: The wolf is trouble and does not hide his or her intentions. These people are very mean and nasty. They will try to hurt you to get what they want. Think about a real wolf. When you can see one, you know how dangerous they are because they can and will harm you.

Self-Defense: Threat Levels
RED: Imminent threat. You are in danger and must take immediate action to get away and out of the situation. This is the most dangerous level.
YELLOW: Medium threat. Try to remove yourself from the situation because you may get hurt.
GREEN: Low threat level. This is the same zone we spend most of our time in. Just maintain your awareness.

What is a Soft-Target?

If you get lost

If you ever get lost,  the best person to look for help is an adult female. Better yet, a mom with her children. A dad with kids is okay too. Next, someone in uniform like police officer, security guard or someone working.

Action-v-Reaction-w/Finger Gun

You can have the students do this by pairing off. The bad guy uses his fingers like a gun. The thumb is the trigger.

Student 1 points index finger gun to the head.

Student 2 disarms just like it was a real gun. This is a fun and effective way to illustrate Action vs Reaction.
