Kids Say They Feel More Protected with Krav Maga Training
Both parents and kids are concerned about protecting themselves from bullies and adult predators, and say Krav Maga training helps them be prepared for the unknown.
“We learn about what to do if people try to hurt us, and we can do moves to make them not hurt us…”
“We also learn how to deal with someone who is really trying to hurt us, and someone who is just being silly but we don’t want them to touch us,” said Catalina, 10, of Mascot.
“And we know what to do when someone grabs us or chokes us, we do our technique and then get to a safety zone and tell someone.”
“It’s really fun and interesting,” she said. “It’s different to Karate and the stuff we’ve done, it’s more fun. We get to exercise and kick and punch stuff.”
The theme of ‘empowerment‘ came through with all the first intake of Krav Kids.
“We learn about what to do if people try to hurt us, and we can do moves to make them not hurt us,” said Jayden, 6, of Mascot.
“My favourite part is when we get to do the kicks to keep people away from us,” he said.
“Krav is fun because we learn how to fight and be safe from enemies and bullies,” said Emma, 8, of St. Peters.
Other Kids Krav students said the key difference was the fun aspect of learning self defence skills in Sydney with Urban Kombat.
“I like Krav because it’s fun, we get to do flying knees, Krav rolls, I just love it so much,” said Ruby, 6, of St. Peters.
“I like Krav because it’s really fun, it’s really sporty, and it’s the most best sport I ever had in the whole world,” said Elena, 6, of St. Peters.
