Sensei Liviu Badescu, Hanshi 8 DAN, explains how a child can react on the street to an attempted kidnapping.
How can a child defend when attacked to be kidnapped?
As a rule, the aggressor comes down and grabs his hands to immobilize him and bring him to the car.
How can a child defend in this case?
The reaction must be very rapid, otherwise, the outcome may be tragic. The stages of the counterattack are:
- Hit in the groin area
- Hit the face
- Leave the place of aggression
Watch a self-defense example of a kidnapping with Vlad Tuţă, 13, Ramnicu Valcea, brown belt holder, Karate-do, and lt. col. RZ. Iulian Mesea, 2 Dan Karate-do.
Follow what happens in the absence of the child’s reaction and what is the difference when the child fights back.
