Circles Of Safety
Self Defense Training

As children grow, so too, does a parent's list of worries.  “What if my child is grabbed by someone?” “Will my child be able to stand up to a bully?”  “How can I teach my child to be more street smart?”  “What if my daughter has a problem on her date?” Every stage of a child’s development comes with safety concerns.
