Real-world personal-safety systems used by police

“Get Access To My Safe Kid Tips – and Learn How The ‘Experts’ Often Get Things Wrong

My name is Dave Young, the founder of Arma Training, US Fighting Systems and Your Family Defense – and a director at the Vistelar Group.

Since 1972 I have been concerned about kid safety — initially for myself (due to the neighborhoods in which I was brought up), then as a police officer and police trainer and, more recently, for my own children (five boys and a girl, with a 16-year-old boy as the youngest).

I have heard all of the advice and, frankly, much of it is a bunch of hogwash.

The reality is that most of the advice you hear comes from theories. An “expert” makes something up that sounds good and it gets adopted as the truth — even though it has never been tested in the real world.

In contrast, I have made a career of testing of what works and what doesn’t work as far as personal safety and self defense — on the streets where it counts.

Doing this is a requirement for my job, which — for over 30 years — has been to train law enforcement professionals how to keep themselves and the public safe.

Through all of these experiences, I’ve accumulated a wealth of knowledge about kid security and safety.

So I decided to develop an ongoing series of Safe-Kid Tips and put up this web page so people could access them from one place.

If you are a parent of kids of any age, you should access these tips — so you know what to do to protect your children.
