About Revved Up Kids Personal Safety and Self-Defense for Children in Kindergarten – 5th Grade

Revved Up Kids offers three training formats that teach personal safety and self-defense for children ages 5-11. Our proprietary curriculum is evidence-based. View the program evaluation report at this link.. These programs teach personal safety and self-defense for children; they are not martial arts training programs.

Our interactive personal safety and self-defense training for children in K-5th grade has been designed to engage children’s visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles. Young children are more likely to retain learning when they see, hear and physically engage in the lessons. For learning retention, we provide monthly follow ups via email to help parents and guardians maintain an active dialogue and practice defensive skills at home.

Revved Up Kids personal safety & self-defense training for children is designed to teach a frightening subject in an empowering way. We use age appropriate language that helps them understand the seriousness of the subject matter, but leaves them feeling strong, not scared. It is our firm belief that the easiest target for a predator is a child who doesn’t know predators exist, and our training helps parents open this difficult dialogue with their children.

We offer 1-hour and 2-hour training formats for K-5th graders (ages 5-11), and a 3-hour training format for 1st-5th graders (ages 6-11). All personal safety & self-defense for children training formats teach participants to Be SMART (understand who predators are and how they operate) and Be STRONG (understand how to defend themselves) so they can Be SAFE.
