Self Defense Class

Last night our Au Pairs were able to go to the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Training Academy for a self defense class with a great Officer.

The program was based on realistic, common sense, safety precautions/practices, and strategies we can implement to stay safe and avoid confrontations. The officer 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!
