he end of the school year is fast approaching and summer vacation is just a few weeks away. This means kids will be playing in the parks and riding their bikes all over our neighborhoods. They will be out longer with the sun going down later in the evening.

 

In order to keep these kids safe a local self-defense school is introducing an “abduction prevention” course for kids.

 

Hiscoe Jiu-Jitsu has specialized in teaching self-defense in the Fraser Valley for the past 20 years.

 

The HEET Survival Academy is a new, innovative and fun self-defense program to help kids aged 8-14 acquired the skills and information required to be safe.

 

The HEET Survival Academy is a 1 day course designed by Steven Hiscoe, an 8th degree black belt in jiu-jitsu, veteran law enforcement officer and father of 2. This is NOT a martial art course; this is a course specifically designed to teach kids what to do if approached or if an adult tries to grab them.

 

This is a highly specialized course aimed at providing students with effective, practical yet simple tactics to keep them safe in the real world. The techniques taught in this course are simple enough that any child can learn them. Discussions on managing fear, total awareness and survival principles also form part of the course.

 

The goal of this 1 day survival academy is to give kids the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to protect themselves in the real world. The course is taking place on June 23rd at Hiscoe Jiu-Jitsu located at 17-8635 Young Rd in Chilliwack.
