Minneapolis, MN (PressExposure) February 10, 2012 -- Black Belt Susan Martinez has just released a new e-book, Kids vs. Bad Guys: Teaching your Kids How to Handle Bad Guys and Bullies.
Kids vs Bad Guys is a personal safety and self-defense home course that parents, grandparents, teachers, and child care professionals can use to teach the little ones in their care how to avoid, handle, and escape from dangerous kids and adults. It includes simple saftey tips that kids can remember and self-defense techniques that will allow kids to fight back against an attacker and escape.
"It's so hard for parents to imagine someone harming their child, but it happens every day in every corner in the world. There's kidnappings, physical and sexual abuse, and bullying, to name a few," said Susan Martinez. "I never imagined it would happen to one of my children. But it did."
In 1989 Susan's fourteen year old daughter Amber was kidnapped by a stranger while out biking one block from home. Fortunately, Amber wasn't as helpless as she may have appeared to her attacker. She had been fortified in advance by her mother with crucial self-defense knowledge that helped her fight back, escape, and essentially save her own life. Today, Amber is married and the mother of two little girls.
"It's a dangerous occupation to be a kid in today's world!" Martinez says. "That's why it's so important that you arm your kids with a sense of self-preservation and some real self-defense skills. Give them a fighting chance against the bad guys!"
Susan Martinez is the author of nine books, a second degree black belt, and a personal safety expert. She is also a wife, mother of five, and a grandmother of two.
