This program combines safety awareness education with self-defense instruction. Emphasis is placed on the learning of physical and verbal skills for self-defense. Students learn break-aways and defense techniques for close contact (being grabbed). Weekly safety awareness information addresses the lures strangers use to attract and abduct children and teens. Students progress in rank and earn their belts. We welcome students from any style.
Uniforms are available for purchase at an additional fee of $35. Contact Young Champions at (714) 478-3793 or (714) 425-4708.
