“We have it within our power to make the world over again”
Thomas Payne 1776
Case in point:
✎ Self-Defense training is part of the California State Curriculum physical education standards .Self-defense is required to be taught in grades 10-12th to girls and boys.
✎ In 2010, California State Bill 1290 passed and allows school districts to provide self-defense training as part of the standard physical education curriculum for students in grades 7-12.
Even though it can be taught, it's NOT!
✎ The school districts don't have the money to find outside training or have their teachers certified to teach it.
✎ Obviously the "train the trainer" model will be the most cost efficient and reach the most students.
✎ By teaching students in P.E., self-defense training is no longer a luxury "life skill" taught after school but becomes a "life-skill" that all students will have access to.
IMAGINE HOW MANY CHILDREN WOULD BE EMPOWERED
• Number of Middle Schools in San Diego County (including SDUSD): 112
• Number of High Schools in San Diego County (including SDUSD): 143
If you estimate that each teacher teaches 5 classes of 45-50 students…then each teacher could reach between 225- 250 kids.
So if you trained 2 teachers from each middle or high school, you could
POTENTIALLY reach between 114,750 and 127,500 students.
We utilize the “Play It Safe Defense” program that has taught tens of thousands of children necessary methods of protection. Other programs as they are developed will be included in our skill set.
Current project potential between 22,500 and 23,000 children per year by certifying 100 Physical Education Teachers
Based up the above figures it is less than
$3.50 per child!
Our training is approved by the San Diego County School District Schools.
