This program continues scenario training from our LEVEL 1 course C.A.P. Child Abduction Prevention.  Kids and women are assaulted and attacked differently. Criminals don’t generally walk up and punch them to gain control, they don’t believe it’s necessary. Just like most fights, it starts with a push, pull, grab, or hold.
This program we add and build through additional scenario training situation.  Your child will learn more effective striking, escaping, anchoring and more physical techniques.  We discuss more about.....
• What is Self Defense?
• Three types of bad guys
• Danger and threat levels 
• Who can hurt us
• Communication 
• What is a soft target?
• How bad guys think
• Verbalizing
• S.A.E. IT
• Stress test- Cell phone test, memorized numbers, names, addresses 

This course will be more physically active than level 1.  Students are expected to know techniques from prior course and will be participating in more scenario situations for class training.


All students will get a certificate of completion, a new color band for the level they are at, our new color of the year t-shirt and the opportunity to win our "TOP TIGER" award.
