Authors of the bestselling book, The Authority On™ Child Safety: How to talk to your kids about their personal safety without scaring them, Gary Martin Hays, Adam Weart, and Mary Ellen Fulkus have teamed up with Richard Swords, one of the highest ranking Krav Maga instructors in the US, to create the follow-up book in the series that will focus on teaching personal safety.

“Richard brings an amazing knowledge base to this book given his background, but he also genuinely cares about helping kids” says Gary Martin Hays.

The Authority On™ Child Safety, was published late last year and quickly achieved bestseller status on, even reaching #1 in the “Personal Safety” and “Health” categories. The book focuses on helping parents and caregivers start the conversation with children about their own personal safety in a non-threatening way.

The forthcoming book, The Authority On™ Child Safety Part II: How to TEACH your child about their personal safety, will act as a manual for parents and caregivers to follow when teaching children about personal safety. The book will cover topics ranging from “dialing 911” to “self defense in the event of an emergency.”

Richard Swords was asked to provide his expertise in this book, given his background in self-defense and child safety empowerment. Richard has trained thousands of men, women, and children in the art of self-defense and protection. He is a Krav Maga Black Belt Instructor, 1 of only 6 instructors in the United States certified by the Wingate Institute, the National Sports and Olympic training center for Israel, the home of Krav Maga. Richard is also a certified KMA Force Civilian Law Enforcement Instructor, Cross Fit Instructor, and 4th Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, with 25 years of experience in Martial Arts.

Krav Maga is based on simple principles and instinctive movements. This reality-based system is designed to teach real self-defense in the shortest possible time. It teaches to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bearhugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, it teaches people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden, violent encounter.

“Richard brings an amazing knowledge base to this book given his background, but he also genuinely cares about helping kids,” says Gary Martin Hays. All the authors from this book have agreed to donate 100% of the royalties to “Lets Protect Our Kids,” a child safety initiative.

The Authority On™ Child Safety Part II is scheduled to be published mid-2013 and will be available in paperback and in e-book format on
