“We have it within our power to make the world over again”

Thomas Payne 1776

The G.E.T. PURPOSE: "To certify physical education teachers so they can empower their students with: sexual assault prevention training, abduction defense and bully defense.

Commonly Known Facts

  1. Sexual assault: 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys before the age of 18 years
  2.  14% of sexual assault victims are 0 to 5 years, 20.10%: 6-11 years, 32.80% 12 to 17 years
  3. Bullying statistics: Nearly 1 in 3 students (27.8%) report being bullied during the school year (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2013)
  4. College Sexual assaults: one in five college students experiences sexual assault during their college career, 95% goes unreported 
  5. Stranger abductions: According to the The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, more than 58,000 children were abducted by non-family members (1999 study)
  6. 1 in 6 endangered runaways reported to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in 2014 were likely sex trafficking victims.
  7. In 2013, there were a total of 60,956 instances of child sexual abuse reported to Child Protective Services agencies in the U.S. This statistic does not include "unreported" cases.

Our goal is that self-defense is required to be taught in all schools, nation-wide.

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.

G.E.T. Epowered


For example:

• 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.

Training of Physical Education Teachers is available to any School District. Our efforts are both preventive and response-prepared to assist certified trained school personnel to address and assist students with surfacing mental and emotional fallout.


We train Physical Education teachers in schools to empower children from elementary school through 12th grade with age appropriate skills to protect themselves from potential sexual abuse, abduction, and bullying, “With Physical Skills, Awareness, Boundaries and Confidence.” Our programs are funded by Grants, Private Donations and School Resources.


The urgency of educating young children on both victim-prevention and offender-prevention is implicit. To be comprehensive in our outreach, the mental and emotional welfare of the program recipients must be a priority for facilitators and educators. Our efforts are both (1) preventive and (2) response-prepared. As indicated, upon certification, teachers are able to provide self-defense and self-advocacy skills to their students. This preventive measure greatly enhances each child’s ability to keep or create a safer environment. Confidence and awareness are building blocks for not only physical safety, but also mental and emotional security.
