School and campus safety

ImageOur school safety self defense training and consulting services are intended to be used by school boards, superintendents, university administrators, faculty and staff to prevent and manage school/campus violence and reduce safety risks and liability.

 In today’s world our teachers need to know how to protect their students. And sadly, our teachers need to know how to protect themselves, too.

A critical part of our mission is to equip our teachers and school administrators with defensive tactics to protect themselves and their students in a crisis.

Krav Maga Kentucky has created a program to train education professionals what to do in the moments when nightmares turn into reality at school. We prepare faculty and train them to deal effectively with school violence, including these topics:

  • Restraining kids in altercations (in school and on the school bus)
  • W eapon defenses
  • Use of force (i.e., the Force Continuum)
  • Female teachers vs. large male students
  • School gang training (prevention, intervention, and enforcement strategies)
  • School bus security (teaches bus drivers how to prevent and manage violence and emergencies on school buses.
