Should Self Defense Classes be electives in schools?
With the world becoming more and more violent, do you think it is a good idea for parents to have the option to sign their kids up for a self defense class if the school provided such a course? What negatives and positives do you see with a program like this?
Yeah! That would be sooo coool.
The problem is - students will want to practice on each other.
I do it all the time with my friends.
After school, we would go behind the school and practice.
I think it is a good idea, so yes.
I was an active in Martial Arts for almost twenty years and I have seen the various reactions and confrontations along the way. In my opinion, in spite of all the challenges along the way, I think a program such as this is a good idea.
The world, sadly, can be a dangerous place, better to be prepared.
As I have told my students.... it is SELF (for you solely) DEFENSE (is reactive and NOT proactive, it is for defense and not attack)
good morning Sue,
i think it would be a good idea for kids to be enrolled in self-defense classes. if it is offered in the school premises, its the best place to learn.
positives what i can see are very simple - children learn to identify the possible threats(bullying etc) which one can come across, not only in a school, but also outside.
