This is why you need to Teach Your Kids Self-Defense

I saw this story this morning while browsing the news, and while this video is extremely disturbing it’s sadly becoming a very common occurrence throughout the country.

From thugs targeting innocent people on the streets in disgusting games they refer to as the “Knockout Game”, to criminals who feel emboldened after getting away with rioting and looting their own neighborhoods in Baltimore and Ferguson, there is an epidemic of violence sweeping the streets of America.

Earlier this month in Conway, Arkansas a 12-year-old boy was viciously attacked by a thug wearing brass knuckles, and not surprisingly the whole thing was recorded on a cell phone and uploaded to the internet for the world to see.

A warning before you watch the video: it is extremely graphic and disturbing. I usually don’t post things like this because often times it’s exactly what these sick people want; attention. But in this case, I think parents need to see it and wake up to the realities of the world that their children are living in.

I dedicated an entire section of my book, The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide: Self-Reliance Strategies for a Dangerous World, to self-defense topics and understanding the criminal mindset. The world our kids are living in is a whole different world than we grew up in.

Help Your Child Develop Situational Awareness

  • The number one thing you can do to protect yourself from violent attacks is to be aware of what’s going on around you.
  • Don’t let your kid be a Zombie! Make sure they stay off their phone, remove the headphones, and pay attention.  Criminals look for easy victims.
  • Start when they are young. Take the time to show them examples of what they should be looking for while out in public. See who can find the most exits at the store, and who can spot the quickest way to those exit points from various spots in the store. These are the kinds of things that will prepare them to face threats and disasters.
  • Teach them to be aware of their surroundings, and to start developing mental maps of places they visit. This will help them  during any disaster including natural disasters, fires, or any other situation where they might have to make a quick exit.

    This is why my kids have taken self-defense classes since they could walk! By the way love the book probably the best stuff I’ve ever read on defense and criminals!

    Guarantee that if this was the other way around Obama would already have the DOJ down there investigating it as a hate crime.

    This is infuriating. I hope this little bastard gets 20 years in prison, although with the culture we now live in the other kid’s family will end up getting sued saying he provoked the little gang banger because he wasn’t being culturally sensitive.

    This kind of thing happened on a daily basis at my daughter’s high school which is why she is now being home schooled. The teachers sit back and let it happen because they are afraid of being called racist if they try to stop it.

    It will assist them in school where they are bullied and even being hurt.

    Sick little sucker punching bastard, whose Dad is probably in prison. Any follow up? Has he been arrested or are the police afraid of rioting since it was just a white kid who got punched?

      He is arrested and they want him to be tried as an adult, but we’ll see if that happens. His mother is a loser white piece of trash garbage that claims he is really a good kid even after admitting he has already been in juvie for fighting. At least she claims to be his mother, who his real mother is at this point has not been verified.

        Thank you for the update. Sadly, jail will probably not improve this kid, only make him more of a criminal, but it is the least that he deserves.

    The sad thing is, we continue to do exactly what the true enemy (the government)really wants… focus on what’s least important- the race of the child. If you do your research instead of making a judgement based on 1 video, you would see that white children participate in this “game” as well. Do you REALLY WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH??
    The real problem is, our ultra-liberal, apathetic, entitled and apologetic society. More parents (black AND white) are concerned with being their children’s friends than being a parent. And there are too many absent and or emasculated father’s out there. Your son can only be taught to be a man, by another man. Much more can be said on the subject but does anyone care to listen…

      Race is probably most important. Have you actually looked the FBI’s uniform Crime Statistics? It is extraordinarily clear that blacks and hispanics commit many times more violent crimes than whites. If we can’t as a country properly identify the problem we have no hope of finding a solution.

    Don’t let anyone twist the facts.

    Thirty thousand white women are raped by black men every year in America. The reverse of what you see in movies and on T.V. Statistically, the number of black women raped by white men is zero. Does that mean that no white men ever rape black women? No. There are cases from time to time. But it happens so rarely that it wouldn’t even wind up on the chart. The reason we are deceived about this is that on those rare occasions when a white is the perpetrator and a black is the victim, we are inundated with reports in the news. This occurs even when it turns out to be unsubstantiated or totally fabricated.

    Much the same is true for pretty much all types of crime. Whites are generally victims of blacks. Why? Well the answers are both simple and complex.
    Research has shown that the differences between the races go beyond skin color. There is a biological, physiological difference which makes people of color more aggressive. They have more testosterone. The fact is that the black race spent hundreds of thousands of years developing a brain suited to survival in the hot jungles of Africa. A black is designed to act quickly and impulsively. One needs such traits to kill tigers. Whites on the other hand evolved traits that aid survival in freezing cold artic climates. They developed tolerance and loyalty and patience as well as planning and cooperation on long term projects. Responsibility and monogamous sexual relationships were essential for people in these northern climates. Where as black people in Africa were able to connect long enough for the female to become pregnant without any commitment on the part of the male. Females in warm climates can survive without the protection of the male. Where as females in cold climates with infants would die without a male. This gave rise to the protective and gentler nature of the white man verses the black man.

    In addition to the above: Slavery, the Welfare/entitlement and subsequent alienation of the black male from his female counterpart and their offspring, the constant demonizing of the white man, and TPTB blaming white’s for the problems experienced by blacks, and the trash music and perverse movies; all these things lead black Africans living in America to see white people as an enemy who is weak enough to attack without fear of injury, and wholly deserving of hatred and violent revenge.

    Last but not least is the controversial fact that many black people have very low cognitive abilities. Compared to white people, their level of reasoning is on a totally different plane. White people expect blacks to reason as they do but blacks do not. A white therefore imagines a black would not hurt him because he is not in any way threatening. This is where the white makes a critical error in logic. It doesn’t matter. You are white. You are prey. This is the law of the jungle.

      B from CA, you’re absolutely right. This is reasonably common knowledge among all but the most brain-dead leftists, but almost no one has the courage to stand up and say, or write, it. In fact people from the Middle East share most of these unfortunate traits and few Americans have the guts to say that these people should not be allowed to immigrate here.

      We can only expect attacks on whites to increase as our traitorous government continues to import savages from Africa and the Middle East.

    This video angered me so much that I began to shake. Something needs to be done about all of this evil bullshit. I will continue to take self defense classes and never allow myself to be a victim.

    In this case training in self defense wouldn’t have helped much since this savage attacked from behind. Best educate your children about the vast disparity in violent crime between blacks and whites.
