)-- Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor for Samurai Karate Studio, located in Richland Northeast, presented a stranger danger workshop to first graders at Forest Lake Elementary School.
"One of my students is a first grader at Forest Lake Elementary and his teacher invited me to speak to all the first graders, " commented Feldt. "This was a really great group of kids and they behaved really well and were active participants."
During the workshop, key concepts were covered, including what is a stranger, examples of who a stranger could be, who to go to if a stranger approaches you, tricks that strangers like to use to try and befriend a child, what to do if lost in a store or separated from your parents, and a couple of quick techniques to use to avoid being taken away by a stranger.
Feldt said, "I am passionate about helping children understand the potential danger of strangers. At this age, kids are so trusting and I don't want to scare them, yet I want them to be aware. I try to remind them that most strangers are good, but we always want to be cautious when we are around them."
"If I can save one child in my lifetime, from being abducted by a stranger, than I will be happy", commented Feldt.
