Montgomery Children Say Self Defense Is For All Ages
CBS 8 and ABC Montgomery are taking action against crime -- it's a situation no parent wants to think about: their child being attacked, abducted, even molested. But tonight, some Montgomery kids are getting a life lesson on how to protect themselves incase that ever happens.
You hear about these stories where a child is abused. Sometimes it's from an adult they trust and care about. Sometimes it's a stranger.
But some Montgomery self-defense students say they've got the skills to protect themselves.
Mali Saul is 9 years old. While she's only going into the fourth grade, she also knows how to fight off an attacker.
You won't want to mess with the four year olds either. They know more moves than you think.
Teacher, Carol Smith, says the self defense tactics and knowlege these kids are learning is invaluable.
And being vocal is exactly what Smith and law enforcement recommend kids to be...
"But you're not going to let it be you?" Asked reporter, Catalina Trivino.
"No. I'll make sure that it won't be me," Said Saul.
And to kick off the school year, the Family Karate Center is offering a free week of self defense class for anyone (it doesn't matter how old you are).
