Studio Jear Kids Self Defense Class in Action

8206 Philips Hwy, #39
Jacksonville, FL  32256

One of the greatest things we can arm our young people with is knowledge. With the sad events added to the long list of school shootings so far in 2018 - Studio Jear Group Fitness will include an active shooter info / drill segment to the workshop.  

  • It's terrifying to think about your child ending up in a situation like the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, or  the most recent tragedy in Parkland, FL. But experts say not only should you think about it - you should plan for it.
  • Sadly, we're living in a new normal, where mass shootings are in the news regularly. As we've learned, nowhere is immune to this. The good news is that there's already proof that drills can save lives.  

Must pre-register
5 - 12 years of age group:  Studio Jear Group Fitness  will discuss and have experts on hand to talk to our young ones about peer pressure, social media, bullying, depression, make SMART decisions, drugs, strangers, unwelcome touching, what to do in a crisis - things that may save your child's life. Education is the KEY to keeping our children safe, in the know and a strong preventative from making the WRONG decisions! Each child will receive a Certificate of Completion and an interactive coloring book on safety & awareness - wonderful gateway parents & caregivers to broach what could be uncomfortable topics for you to discuss with your children.
  • Kids / Teens given handouts summarizing what they learned.
  • EXTREMELY EDUCATIONAL -  Parents' Roundtable Discussions while the kids / teens are in class!

5 - 12 years of age group:

Master Katherine will be teaching a class of awareness & self defense for our young people. Education is the key on teaching your child how to stay safe, what to do in dangerous situations. This class will give them awareness and a gateway for parents / caretakers to have discussions with them on this all important topic. Here are some of the topics we will be teaching the kids:

Not every stranger is scary looking!  Some strangers look nice or pretty!  They're still strangers!

  • Strangers - the do's and don't's.
  • What to do if grabbed by a stranger (physical & mental tactics).
  • Gun Safety - what to do and NOT do if you find a gun
  • Educating parents - code words, putting your child at ease to talk to you about any topic.
  • Bullies - how to confront them safely and how to ask for help  
  • Social Media.
  • Question & answer period included.  
    No one deserves to be bullied! 
    How to make it STOP!

This is a NO NEVER!  Never approach or speak to a stranger in a car!

Learn to avoid situations that will escalate
Give your child / teen every opportunity to recognize potentially dangerous situations and how to handle them. 

Some kid keeps talking about bringing a gun into school....should I tell someone?  

Classes will cover bullying (face-to-face & cyber); what to do if you are being followed by a stranger; what to do if you grabbed by a stranger; "this adult is acting CRAZY! - I feel cornered - what do I do now?"; If I don't take these drugs along with everyone else - they'll think I'm a punk, teen depression / suicide prevention - tips for parents on what changes to look for in your child!

These are some of the topics that will be covered and more. If this class helps even one child / young person stay safe or make a parent more aware of the dangers their child faces every day...we will feel that we've MADE the difference.
