Why do children need to learn how to defend themselves?

Our children are faced with dangers in their day to day activities. When they are out and about going to and from school they can be approached by people who wish them harm. Children are often targeted by various groups of people such as strangers, people they know, and other kids such as bullies can threaten their safety. One can categorize the treats that a child can face as follows:

What is the International Krav Maga Federation(IKMF) approach to Kid's self-defense?

Children's Krav Maga mostly referred to as "Kid krav" was developed by IKMF as part of Krav Maga self defense solutions created for the various civilian sectors. Kids self defense enables children, in a relative short period of time, to learn self-defense techniques carefully adapted to match their respective age, physical and mental abilities.

Through Krav maga training the children are taught how to recognize common threats like bullies and kidnappers. The training also aims to improve their self esteem, build confidence respect and discipline. IKMF Kid Krav Maga methods, especially in the younger age group are mostly taught through Krav Maga games.

Games help the children develop coordination; learn how to follow directions and foster assertiveness. Through these games kids are taught how to avoid confrontation, and how to defend themselves when necessary in order to escape.Kid krav maga openly and cautiously explains attack scenarios kids may encounter the difference between being bullied by a classmate or by an unknown adult, their options in each situation, what is the proportional response and so on.The IKMF system divides kids' krav to five main age categories. As the children get older training includes fewer games and resembles the adult curriculum.

What does a child learn in your classes?

Children who train Krav Maga learn a lot about commitment and endurance. Krav Maga teaches them to appreciate and be proud of their achievements when learning a new technique or passing their grade test.

They get a true sense of the path they are on and their progress and they realize that no goal is impossible. In the process they also get a great work out!Kids who need to let out steam can also get a break in Krav maga training.

They're permitted to hit the punching bag, fight with another student under the instructor's supervision and in the process learn that without these pre-conditions it is not ok to hit or fight.
