Did you know the best defensive move to protect yourself is the palm strike? Yes, one strong and explosive palm strike to an attackers chin can help you escape from a scary situation. Strike and run away as fast as you can!
The smartest thing to do however, is to not get into a threatening situation to begin with. That is why my F.A.B. Empowers business partner Sheila and I created the P.A.V.E program. We want to arm people (especially teens) with the tools needed to navigate the world wisely and safely.
P.A.V.E. is an acronym that stands for Palm Strike, Awareness, Voice, and Escape. We couple learning important concepts with fun dance moves and activities to ensure the needed safety tools are engrained in each individuals being for quick mental retrieval and safe smart daily living.
Look up from your cellphones and be aware of your surroundings. Listen to your gut and speak up if you feel threatened in any way. And if someone comes at you…. quickly and explosively use the palm strike to help you escape as fast as you can!
