CMAC is committed to helping martial arts schools make a positive difference in their
communities, and our Kid-Safe Communities program is a great way to do this, while
setting your program apart from all others. That’s why we created Kid-Safe Communities
and encourage faith-based martial arts schools and instructors to become certified
in this important safety programs. CMAC contributions in excess of those required
to cover operating expenses are used to fund Kid-Safe and Women-Safe outreach endeavors
through churches, schools, and community groups throughout the United States.
Jesus said it was better than a millstone (hung about the neck of an individual)
be thrown into the depths of the sea than for that individual to cause a little one
to stumble in their faith (Mark 9:42). The rise of crimes of violence (especially
sex-based crimes) against children is at epidemic proportions today, and the Church
needs to take a proactive role in helping train parents and children how to recognize
the tricks predators use to lure potential prey and teaching them how to minimize
their risk of becoming a victim.
Using a fun, interactive format with children, we expose common predator lures and
use humor to teach proactive defensive tools while sharing faith-filled message of
hope, as the ultimate “Kid-Safe” decision any child can make is to have a personal
relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior. Parents who might not darken the doors
of a church on Sunday will bring their children to hear this important safety message,
and allows the church an opportunity to showcase their ministry programs and share
the love of Jesus in a tangible way.
