3 Full Days Instructor Training
for PE Teachers

SHIELD Women’s Self Defense System as a part of PE classes








Nelson Nio



Los Angeles, May 16, 2013


SHIELD Women's Self Defense System is rolling out an Instructor Training Program for high school & middle school PE teachers. The intent of the Program is to provide schools with all the training, materials, and equipment needed for schools to incorporate rape prevention self defense training for teenage girls, as a part of PE program. 


Currently, our school teaches teenage girls how to climb ropes, jump a distance, play tennis, and others activities. We have failed to teach them on how to defend themselves if harm comes their way. In the U.S., every 2 minutes a woman is sexually assaulted, and every 9 seconds a woman is being beaten by someone they know. Teen dating violence is a huge problem in our society. And violence against women is recognized as a public health concern by LA County Department of Public Health, where we have been teaching self defense for the past 6 years.


SHIELD curriculum focuses on rape prevention self-defense skills for teenage girls. Our program includes drills that are designed to strengthen core muscles and make students become more physically grounded and balanced. We practice how to correctly execute elbow strikes, palm strikes, kicks and knee strikes in tight close range situations. We go through simple techniques to get away from common assaults for women, including various grabs from behind, chokehold, hair pull, wrist grabs, and various ground fighting techniques on how to get away from being pinned down on the ground positions. Our program also includes handling armed assailants (knifes and guns).


SHIELD training is unique because we generate power from the core & lower body strength, which is highly advantageous for women and girls.
