Last night our Au Pairs were able to go to the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Training Academy for a self defense class with 5 amazing Officers.
The program was based on realistic, common sense, safety precautions/practices, and strategies we can implement to stay safe and avoid confrontations. The officers highlighted day to day activities, and some simple precautions we can take to minimize being identified as a potential target.
We also discussed strategies and possible options (both verbal and physical) to reduce the possibility of injury in the event of a physical confrontation.
Everyone had a great time and learned many new tricks to stay safe!
