A Dynamic Program for
Empowering Children to Protect Themselves
In Raising Kids Who Can Protect Themselves, Debbie and Mike Gardner share their decades of self-defense experience to show parents how to teach their children courage—the trait needed to make brave, smart, and safe choices, no matter what their age, no matter what the situation.
Raising Kids Who Can Protect Themselves helps families foster courage in their children at an early age so that it becomes an inherent trait, rather than a situational need. The book features:
- Age-appropriate methods
to instill courage in children without creating fear
- Courage coaching as a
way to create a “family” defense system
- Lifesaving skills, such
as quality eye contact, voice control, breathing,
control of inappropriate crying,
development of positive self-talk, and space
- Ways to reduce
- Site-specific survival
strategies, from parties to the mall to sports

Simply the BeST Crimie Survival Book
Learn how to prevent an attack and how to survive an armed
physical assault. "Simply the BST Crime Survival" is more than
an "how to book" it is also a "why" book.
KUBOTAN® Handle for Keys
Visualize a standard sized "magic marker" attached to your key ring!
A Kubotan® provides a wonderful "GRIP" for emotional control when you are afraid. In a desperate life-saving act, either end of the Kubotan® serves as a valuable weapon to strike an attacker. Simple instructions are included.
Please note. This is a martial arts weapon and CANNOT be taken on a plane.
From the Classes of Debbie Gardner...
The question isn’t: “Can you save your life?”
The question is: “Will you try?”
People want simple truths that they can apply immediately
and can also take home to teach to their children and family members.
CHOOSE COURAGE! is NOT a demonstration or selling opportunity
for traditional crime prevention products like pepper sprays, stun guns, etc.
It’s NOT about complicated karate-type moves, boring crime statistics,
scary crime tales and unrealistic safety rhetoric.
(Never walk along, don’t talk to strangers, use your common sense!)
It is about the BST© Crime Survival Plan!
It can be rapidly learned and easily remembered!
It does work effectively for most people, most of the time!
It requires full responsibility for one’s own safety at all times!
About Debbie and Mike
Debbie was the first female police officer in Cincinnati, Ohio in the 1970s and Mike was one of her co-workers. With a black-belt and police training, the frist time she was attacked, she froze! She tells the story on her DVD, so I don't want to spoil it for you.
This is not your traditional self-defense class or books. They teach Courage with Love, and action steps that you can take to protect yourself. If you buy every product on this page it would be less than $80...and the information could save your life, or the life of someone you love.
Yes, they teach live classes and their
fees are reasonable.

See below for testimonials and
companies who have hired them.
Debbie and Mike were amazing. I have NEVER witnessed a
more captivated audience
in my whole career working with
various associations and events (15+ years).
seen several types of speakers - but this was a very
powerful and educational session and yet, at the same time,
Debbie kept it very fun. We even had some attendees request
to bring guests or children to see it.
Anyway - I can't say enough about them. On the management side of things - they were very easy and super to work with. If you are considering them for an event - I doubt that you would not feel the same. I would be glad to answer any questions or provide more input if needed.
