Free self-de­fence for kids

Wanneroo Times - - Wafl -

ATI Mar­tial Arts will be hold­ing free self-de­fence classes to boost child safety this week.

The academy is run­ning classes at all its branches, in­clud­ing Malaga, Hamer­s­ley, Scar­bor­ough, Trigg, El­len­brook, Mid­land, For­rest­field, Joon­dalup and Clare­mont, un­til July 7.

Di­rec­tor Tony Cur­tis said the classes were in­spired by a re­cent so­cial ex­per­i­ment which high­lighted the need for “stranger dan­ger” ed­u­ca­tion.

“We do not think it is taught enough in schools,” he said.

“We are a reg­u­lar part of chil­dren’s lives and as role mod­els and mar­tial arts coaches we have a big im­pact and can be very ef­fec­tive in ed­u­cat­ing kids in this area.”
