Welcome To Tucson RadKIDS!

Thank you for visiting our basic information site. We truly appreciate your initiative in keeping your child/ren safe. Our RadKIDs team is here to help you ease your anxiety or worries while providing a unique educational program ensuring your little ones safety.

RadKIDS is a nationally recognized, children's safety education and empowerment program primarily designed for children between the ages of 4 and 12.  Children learn awareness and avoidance techniques to prevent or escape situations that may involve bullying, school violence or abduction attempts.

Unlike traditional martial arts, our program directly addresses current threats through unique age appropriate education and realistic yet playful scenario training. Our volunteer team consist of certified instructors, local educators, martial artists, fitness trainers and retired Military.

We conduct private radKIDS classes at Crossfit, special weekenders at the UA and run the full 8 hour radKIDS 'Awareness-Prevention' course at the UofA. This is held annually in June and is open to all. 

If you want to prepare your child/ren and help them grow a sense of personal security plus ease your own anxiety then consider RadKIDS. Review this site and the subsequent pages, please annotate any questions then call or email us. The below information is for our radKID graduates and their families. To see when our next scheduled classes will be held, click here.

On-line Exploiter Victimizing Your Child?
Reduce the Risk
~Spend time with your children on-line. Have them teach you about their favorite on-line destinations.
~Keep the computer in a common room in the house, not in your child's bedroom. It is much more difficult for a computer-sex offender to communicate with a child when the computer screen is visible to a parent or another member of the household.
~Always maintain access to your child's on-line account and randomly check his/her e-mail. Be aware that your child could be contacted through the U.S. Mail. Be up front with your child about your access and reasons why.
~Find out what computer safeguards are utilized by your child's school, the public library, and at the homes of your child's friends. These are all places, outside your normal supervision, where your child could encounter an on-line predator.
~Instruct your children:
*to never arrange a face-to-face meeting with someone they met on-line and not to believe anything written to them about new 'friends' wanting to fly-drive out and meet.

*to never upload (post) pictures of themselves onto the Internet or on-line service to people they do not personally know or give out identifying information such as their name, home address, school name, or telephone number;

*to never download pictures from an unknown source, as there is a good chance there could be sexually explicit images or respond to messages or bulletin board postings that are suggestive, obscene, belligerent, or harassing;
