Kids punch, kick their way to being more aware, mastering self defense


Kids in Syracuse punched and kicked their way to mastering self defense during an Abduction Workshop over the weekend.

Instructors at Champions Martial Arts welcomed kids to learn awareness, ways to protect themselves and how to recognize a dangerous situation. Chief instructor Carlos Tearney believes workshops like this one can help give parents peace of mind.

"As a father of four, I know that I'm always trying to instill these values and tips to my kids but they always need a constant reminder of it," says Tearney. "Sometimes when it's being taught it's a different perspective and they way we do our workshop is really interactive and go over some scenarios and skills to really help them if they're ever presented with a certain situation."

Champions Martial Arts plans to hold two more workshops this summer as part of their Summer Safety Series.
