Halloween is Safer for Karate Kids

Halloween is right around the corner!

Make sure your kids are safe when they are out trick or treating!  Martial arts and karate teach kids to be more aware.  On a night like Halloween, when there are so many potential distractions, it is important for children to practice being aware and staying safe.

Karate classes at the Laguna Beach Dojo help develop a better sense of awareness in all situations.  Through simulations and discussions, students practice what to do in a real life scenario to protect themselves.  Better yet, our students learn how to identify and avoid potentially dangers situations.

Parents learn important tips as well to insure their kids have a fun time on Halloween while staying safe.

Halloween Safety Tips

Simple things like:

  • Using the Buddy System
  • Having a designated check-in point
  • Using an app such as Life 360 to ensure you know their location at all times
  • Having specific times set to call or text
  • Making costumes bright or including reflective tape

In martial arts classes, students are taught to use their voice in a confident manner.  Using your voice is simply a form of communication.  Making sure that you have a good line of communication with your child will help you feel more at ease and give your kid confidence knowing there is a plan in place.
