Are our kids too trusting?

Can Our Kids Defend Themselves? Lets face it, a 200 pound, six-foot man can overpower a fifty-five pound child almost any given day. There is no way the kidnapped, assaulted child can fight the brute strength of an adult. This isn’t to say there aren’t any self-defense teachings the child should learn. The best thing a child can have going for them is a protective parent who teaches more than just the common “don’t talk to strangers” rule. Be honest with the children and explain more than just “some people like to hurt little children.” Think up scenarios and rehearse them with your child.. Parents also need to teach their children to yell NO and continue to yell. Teaching this may seem like a foreign concept to many parents. The thing is, many don’t know how to use it in situations with other adults. There is a fine line between being polite and respectful to an adult and knowing when to back away and say no to unwanted attention

or touch. It is the child’s body and they should have the right to say who can and can’t touch them. By teaching this to them in a known, controlled environment, they will have a better chance of doing the same in the unknown. If they are cornered, is there some type of weapon they can use? The child may be too small to hit the assailant upside the head but a good whack to the knees; arch of the foot or toes can sometimes slow the “bad guy” down. One of the most important things a parent needs to make clear to the child is to run away and put as much distance as possible between them and their assailant if they become free.

Fusion Self Defense Course for Kids This very unique course has been created by LeAnn Stanhope from the techniques that she learned during her time in the Canadian Military Police. The content of this course is not allowed to be taught in Canada as it is reserved only for the Police forces. This course is fantastic for kids, Mums and Dads who are not tough or aggressive by nature. The skills taught in this workshop require little strength and are designed to get an attacker to stop long enough for you to get away. It is a fun, interactive workshop that includes, pressure points, martial arts and holds that will help you to get out of a sticky situation.

Kung Fu Teaches Winning isn’t Everything Children from ages 5 to 12 can benefit from Kung Fu because it not only teaches them self-defense, but develops important mental, social, emotional and behavioral skills such as:

        

Memorization Concentration Critical thinking Self discipline Confidence Self-esteem Perseverance Respect for others Lifelong healthy living habits

The positive skills young children develop through Kung Fu training can then carry over into other pursuits in their lives and lead to effective study and work habits that will follow them throughout their life as they grow up and advance through their schooling and enter their careers as adults. Traditional Kung Fu training is ideal for the non-athletic type. There are many who do not care for team sports. Some may have self confidence problems because they are small, uncoordinated, shy, or afraid of being pushed around. Pressure to perform well can lead to

even greater loss of self esteem. The advantage of Kung Fu instruction is that it can be individualized. It can help a child develop confidence without worrying about winning. Kung Fu training also exposes them to Chinese culture, as they study the art of self defense. Fusion offers Kids Kung Fu Mondays and Wednesdays from 2:45pm—6pm. See schedule on the back of the newsletter for class times. Contact for an enrollment form

Rock the Abs Before the Kids Get Up! I am a morning person. I really like getting up and getting my workout over with first thing in the morning. Turns out there are many like minded people here in DB! When I started the Body IQ class Thursday mornings at 6am I thought there would be 1 or two interested. I was stunned to see 6 on the first day. This

class is about a good stretch and a good workout for the important areas—ABS! With a more subtle thrashing of the butt, thighs and upper body. We combine Pilates, yoga, martial arts, stretching and a few laughs to make a cracker of a class that you will remember the next day when you try and sit up in bed. It is also a great

time to talk about nutrition questions and training tips that might help you with your training program at home. Bring a friend and try it out! First class is FREE! Thursdays 6am

Belly Dancing Your Way to Sexy Curves Belly dancing is a hip new way of staying fit in a fun and supportive atmosphere. It appeals to anyone looking for a way to break out of his or her old fitness routine. Belly dancing tones muscle while accentuating curves and can be learned by dancers of all fitness levels. Do a Belly Roll * Stand straight, with your knees relaxed, and put your hands on your hips. * Suck in your diaphragm while you relax your pelvic muscles. * Relax the diaphragm while tightening the pelvic muscles. * Repeat over and over in a flowing manner, while imagining that your navel is making a full rotation: down, in, up and out.

Belly Dance for Fitness * Wear the right clothes. Belly dancing clothing is suggested, but anything loose and comfortable will do when you're just getting started. Belly dancing is performed barefooted. *Trim your midsection, thighs and hips while learning to shimmy. Belly dancing is noncompetitive and stress-free. * Get out what you put in. Depending on the length and frequency of your sessions you can get a body-shaping workout that firms and tones while strengthening muscles. Because belly dancing is low-impact, chance of

injury is rare so dancers of all ages and health levels can reap the benefits. * Improve your posture and balance through belly dancing by building abs and strengthening back muscles. Learning to control abdominal muscles takes practice and many strengthening exercises can be done anywhere, anytime.
