MANTIS is a new company which has developed a host of simple, proven initiatives which will help to significantly empower children and young people, making them safer and building their confidence.
The first of these initiatives focuses on a physical attack or abduction attempt, and teaches how to release from a physical grab. The techniques are demonstrated by Silvio Simac - World Champion Martial Artist and Hollywood actor. As he illustrates, whatever direction the grab comes from, and whatever the size of the opponent, any child or young person can release themselves. The steps to achieve this are presented in a series of interactive learning programmes called ‘The Children’s Protector’. 8 steps are taught over the course of 8 weeks, with instructions and encouragement to practice for just a few minutes each day – together with an interactive game that’s played on an XBOX (360 / 1) a PLAYSTATION (3/ 4) or by using a DVD player with the remote control. The Interactive test helps to instil the techniques. For more information visit their website
