Free Safety Workshop Starts a Safe Summer

Julio G. Anta

It’s that time of the year again — summer vacation is right around the corner. Children will be going to the park, hanging out with friends, going on vacation and some will return to their native country to visit family.

Summer vacation can be memorable time for children but predators and criminals are also preparing to victimize them and ruin a vacation. Are you and your child prepared? At Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense, our mission is to make America safe, one child at a time.

On Friday, May 18, at 5:15 p.m., we’ll host a free community service event: the “Steal-Proof Master Challenge & Child Safety/Anti-Abduction Workshop at Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense. We’ll screen the “Journey of the Steal-Proof Master,” a fantasy-based abduction prevention movie and program for children and their parents. Anta’s “Steal-Proof Master Challenge” will provide free training in an all-out effort to teach children and adults about preventing abductions.

According to the FBI, no area in the nation is safe from predators trying to harm our children. Miami was rated No. 23 in the FBI’s list of America’s unsafe cities. (Over one million children are abused, molested or abducted every year!).

This summer your children will be playing in parks and you will be on vacation. As a father of two boys, and a retired Law Enforcement Officer, certified instructor in the National Safety Alliance and Kids Safe Network, as well as a martial arts instructor, I believe every child should be versed in street safety.

Having been featured in numerous TV shows and conducted many abduction awareness/stranger danger seminars in the City of Doral and throughout the U.S., I’ve studied with the top experts of realitybased self defense and stranger danger. Yet, what still worries me the most is how innocent children cannot adequately defend themselves against the lures of the twistedmind sexual predator or abductor.

“The Steal-Proof Master” can change all that, using the vehicle of fantasy adventure that introduces children to the most common lures and tricks used by predators and, most importantly, teaches them how to respond appropriately.

Kids will love this movie and its creative approach. It holds their attention so that critical information gets transferred in a way they can relate to. Don’t be surprised to see your child practicing and acting out the various behaviors associated with each evil warrior depicted.

It’s a great way for you and your children to begin your summer vacation, learning to recognize predator lures and how to maintain awareness. We are so excited about this program that we will continue to replay it throughout the summer in our summer camps. Call us today to reserve your spot. Have a fun-filled and safe summer, too!
