not too sure if this has been discussed on here, I cant seem to find a search button!!!!
anyway, i have some younger students, about 8-14 years old, that I would like to start teaching some basic self defence issues. ie the running away, not getting into trouble, watching out for bad people, talking their way out of trouble.
the problem I have is that though I had a few issues when I was 18 or so, getting out of pub fights, running away myself etc and only having 2 or 3 fights in my life, I dont know how to go about teaching the above issues to the students. i know they have to relate this to school yard bullying or strangers taking them off the streets.
I have looked at things on the internet and have actually bought some usefull books. ie Kane & Wilder Little Black Book of Violence and I have been thinking of doing Iain's long distance course on self protection. Also there is a local systema group who are doing a Multiple Attackers Seminar at the weekend that I was thinking of going to.
Is there anything else that could benefit me in this subject???
