The CTS – Self-Defence for School Students training curriculum is designed to teach the skills necessary to help children protect themselves. Children receive realistic hands-on instruction about how to face threats/violence either indoors/outdoors.
Many children are confronted with intimidation, negative peer pressure and many other difficult situations. They can also become intimidated when dealing with adults who intend to compromise their safety. Children frequently lack the skills and confidence to handle these situations.
CTS – Self-Defence gives children, through repetitive role play, the opportunity to practice safety concepts in a safe and supportive environment. We use age-appropriate scenarios, with instructors portraying the “stranger” to create a realistic training environment. CTS uses a team of male and female instructors, during the training sessions.
Through CTS – Self-Defence training, children become empowered learning to replace fear, confusion, and panic in dangerous situations with confidence, personal safety skills and self-esteem. Through this hands-on educational training, children learn to use their voice, body language and physical strikes to set boundaries and keep themselves safe. Children develop confidence in their ability to act on their own behalf. The child feels confident and becomes courageous.
