COBRA-Defense Child Abduction Prevention

Reality For Kids

Parents, here are several facts that we do not like to admit are true but we cannot deny:

  • Most attackers will not be hurt by simple kicks or punches from children ages 5-12
  • Children are soft targets and easy prey
  • Self-defense courses are not required during general or higher education/schooling. 
  • Cell phones are useless in saving a child. 99% of victims cannot retrieve and/or complete a call during a dangerous situation.

Our program comes from many years of study and training — along with a dose or two of common sense — to create the ultimate in child safety & self-defense. During the one day of training mini-academy, children participate in the following:

  • Vehicle Abductions
  • Home Invasion
  • Anti–abduction
  • Communication Drills
  • SAE IT Drills (Scream Attack Escape)
  • “Circle Of Security” Instruction
  • Simulated 911 Calls
  • Kidnapping Defense
  • Advanced Child Special Striking
  • Written Exams
  • Bully & Confidence Scenarios
  • Apply Their Skill Against Bad Guys (Scenarios)
How to Piggyback a News Story

How to Piggyback a News Story

Over the weekend, a news story broke about a girl who used a code word to thwart a potential abduction. The media and readers of the story all praised the “brilliant strategy” of a code word and how this “top-notch parenting.”

On Twitter, the hashtag #codeword blew up. So I banged out a blog post entitled, “A Code Word Did NOT Save a 10-Year Old from Abduction.” While code words seem like a good idea, Chris Sutton of COBRA-Defense convinced me otherwise. Never teach a child to engage in conversation with a stranger.

I then searched for the hashtags #codeword on Twitter and Google News. Here I could target high traffic Twitter pages like Good Morning America and Tweet my short headline and a link to my personal blog

The key is that you have to add to the story. You can’t just comment. Bring a different viewpoint from the norm. In this case, the praise for the strategy was almost 100%, so a fresh viewpoint adds to the story. Of course, some people will disagree with me, but I’m used to that.
