Over the weekend my daughter and I attended Sig Sauer Academy’s eight-hour course on Kidnapping Prevention for Young Women. This was the logical next step in constructing her self-defense mindset. For years now she has been shooting at our local gun club at our Friday night kid’s shoot and is comfortable around guns. A self-defense course was our next step and by traveling to Sig it gave us some precious time together to discuss her self-defense. One key takeaway from the course is to use your common sense—avoid vulnerable situations. Easy enough to say but sometimes difficult to do.
KIDNAPPING IS AN ALL TOO COMMON OCCURRENCE THAT RECEIVES LITTLE ATTENTION UNTIL IT HITS TOO CLOSE TO HOME.
Kidnapping Prevention for Young Women is a hands on course for girls between 13 to 17 years of age and their parent/guardian. This course will cover situational awareness, critical decision making and strategic planning for the entire family. Kidnapping and sexual assault are every parent’s worst nightmare. The young women in this course will learn proven techniques to survive any abduction or assault.
