Tonight's special guest is Stefan Verstappen from Toronto, a writer and martial arts teacher with over 35 years experience. He developed The Little Warrior program featuring The Little Warriors Street Safety Books over a ten-year period of teaching young children safety and self-defense. He is also the author of The Art of Urban Survival, and has done dozens of radio interviews on the subject of his booklet and video on the subject of "Defense Against the Psychopath." Stephan asks, "Since it is impossible for you or someone you can trust to watch over your children at all times what can we do to make sure our children survive such an encounter?" And he answers his own question, "One solution to preventing children from becoming victims is to train them to be able to prevent being targeted." Children do not have to understand all the reasons why something is wrong, they just need to know when something is wrong and what to do. Role playing games teach by doing, rather than lecturing. By physically re-enacting a skill through games and exercises, children create new nerve pathways in the brain that will enable them to use that skill instinctively later if they need to. These good instincts will serve to protect kids their whole lives. The Little Warriors is a unique street-proofing and safety program that teaches kids how to be safe, how to protect themselves from danger, and what to do in an emergency.
