Fit4Defense is a national program that increases youth empowerment through self-defense, assertiveness training and the development of life skills. As you probably know, bullying and violence are serious problems facing our youth today in schools and the community. Youth are also less physically active as a result of computers and video games. This program provides them with information and techniques to gain life and leadership skills, improve communication and manage anger for the purpose of violence prevention, increased safety and risk reduction.
