CURRICULUM

The Stop Abduction Program raises societal awareness to new dangers and equips students in Kindergarten – College to live well-informed without living in fear.   Our curriculum redefines who a stranger is, both in-person and online, and teaches students how to recognize and respond to their own instinctive warning system, with people they know, hardly know and do not know at all. Our safeguard tools include interactive materials, videos and practice scenarios in preparation to be alert, to be informed and to be prepared when online or in proximity to others.  Stop Abduction is scalable to every school, college and university
nationwide and can impact every community where people live.  

Stop Abduction curriculum is best facilitated in Physical Education classes or designated classrooms in grades K-12.  College and university students utilize the initiative through athletic programs and student assemblies. The Stop Abduction Program provides educators and students with a comprehensive Common Core aligned curriculum which is broken down into
three sections for easy instruction in the elementary, middle and high school settings.

SECTION 2:  PHYSICAL DEFENSE

Stop Abduction created a specially designed Break-Away defense program which combines Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  These simple, yet effective defense moves were developed by a second degree BJJ Black Belt who maintains a prestigious fighting career in grappling as well as being an expert in Mixed Martial Arts.  Students are trained to use physical resistance if they
encounter a person or situation that may bring them harm.

Students review the above-referenced sections and collaboratively discuss how to incorporate the newly learned skills into their daily lives.  As Stop Abduction skills are practiced, students develop the right instinctive response to
potential in-person and online threats by predators.

Educators have the opportunity to develop grading procedures pertaining to cognitive understanding and
demonstrable application based on individual and group assessments.
