Kidnapped Missouri Girl Found Dead

Hailey Owens, a 10 year old abducted from her Missouri neighborhood, was found dead after suspect Craig Michael Woods was arrested outside his home.

Hailey was walking home from school when Woods pulled over to ask her directions and yanked her by the arm into his truck. Neighbors witnessed the kidnapping and reported to the police immediately with his license plate number, but authorities could not keep up until it was too late. One neighbor went as far as chasing the suspect with his car, but to no avail. Hailey's body was found in trash bags with a gunshot wound to the head several days later.

Self-Defense in Burbank for Kids

Stories like Hailey's are the reason Burbank Martial Arts for Kids focuses on teaching realistic self-defense, street safety, and awareness such as Anti-Kidnapping and Stranger Danger. We also offer seminars open to the community for all parents and children who want to learn valuable street safety lessons.

Which martial arts style is best for kids? We choose Wing Chun for children because it focuses on realistic street-effective self-defense techniques. To learn more, call us at (818) 843-7916 today.

Student Spotlight: Ian D.

Ian and his new "Orange" sash after a successful test

Kids Martial Arts in Burbank

Student Name: Ian

Parent Names: Wendy & Lei

Student Age: 2 and a half

City of Residence: South Pasadena

Why did you bring Ian to the school?

To expose Ian to a social environment where communication skills are required so he can learn how to interact with other kids and in English while learning a physical art form/activity that connects him to the Chinese culture background. Also, to build confidence and learn how to stand up for himself and others the right way.

Tell us what's changed since Ian's first day.

The classes at the Academy have helped Ian develop his presence of being. By this, we mean a holistic change more than a one dimensional thing like being less shy. Ian has grown to become much more aware of himself and his surroundings. For example, when he is at a party, he looks around to make sure all the other kids are 'taken care of', be it bringing them a toy or closing a door that someone left open. Now we don't know if this is a result of the Life Skills or learning Pak Sau or the fact that everyone always starts Wing Chun class with their own orange cones, but we are very thankful to you all for helping make our Ian a better person.

Any advice for new parents?

Observe how your child is doing in class. Find one thing they did well in each class and let them know how proud you are. At the same time, find one thing to improve on and encourage them to do better in the next class. No need to overwhelm them. Practice at home with them anything that they need a little help on. You will be amazed at how quickly your child will feel right at home.
