How to Prevent Child Abduction

Due to the tragic incident in Brooklyn, AmeriKick Martial Art School in Staten Island is hosting a Kidnapping Prevention seminar. It is open to the public and it is free. Please call in advance to reserve your kid(s) spots on the floor. We will be covering: who to talk to, family passwords, how important it is to do what parents tell them to do, who to trust, whether or not to get into a car/house and so much more.

Kids are very gullible and are easily persuaded. This is due to lack of knowledge when it comes to situations where they are confronted by elders that they may or may not know. For instance, a boy has his name on his t-shirt and a elderly man/woman comes up and says “Hi Timmy (name on shirt), your mom asked me to pick you up from school today, I’m your uncle bobby” or something like it. If it is persuasive enough for the child, they may go with them. If you gave him a password such as a code-word/phrase, for example: “fire started” etc., this incident may have been prevented. However, if the boy was taught this, he realized that the man/woman is an imposter.. now what? What will he do? Tell a teacher, run into a store and yell for help from the staff, call 911 if he has a phone etc.

There is a lot a child needs to know to be safe when parents are not around. Please pick up the phone and call to reserve your spot at the Kidnapping Prevention Seminar.

Why is it important to keep kids active during the summer?

Many kids during the school year study real hard, however, once summer comes around if kids do not have something to do… many will be stuck on the TV screen or on their game consoles.
It is imperative that you get your kids out of the house and into hands-on outdoor and indoor activities. Summer Camps are an amazing way to keep them active, however many cannot afford them.
Another great way to keep your kids active all summer long and building their discipline and self confidence is through Karate. Some part time karate school will be closed during the summer time; however, many like AmeriKick Martial Arts in Staten Island are open all year round. They have Karate Summer Camps that include indoor and outdoor activities; from karate, gymnastics to weapons classes. Going on trips from the parks, beaches to museums and so much more.
Best of all after summer camp is over, AmeriKick in Staten Island has regular evening classes. Starting the kids off from ages 3 and up. They have amazing karate programs for kids and an awesome adult karate/mma/Ladies kickboxing program as well.
