S.C.A.N.® stands for Stop Child Abuse and Abduction Now
Statistic! In the United States, a child is reported missing every 40 seconds, which equals
2300 missing children on a daily basis.
S.C.A.N. stands for Stop Child Abduction (and Abuse) Now! United Kempo Karate Schools works with local law enforcement and schools to teach the dangers involving strangers. Some of the curriculum highlights are as follows:
- Stranger Awareness Education
Our drills help prepare children for real-life situations. Through these realistic, controlled drills, the student can learn how to recognize a stranger, what questions to ask if they encounter a stranger, and finally how to successfully get away if they are grabbed.
- Family Code Words
- We recommend all families establish a “code word”. This word is not to be given to anyone! The only exception is when a parent truly must have someone else involved that the child may not recognize. A code word should even be used when family and friends pick up a child. It should then be changed after it is used.
- What can parents do?
This section includes training for the parent(s). They are taught the proper procedure to follow to help prepare their child, along with what to do in the event of an emergency.
