    Every Saturday from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. I conduct a class for children from 8 to 12 years old at the Presidio studio. These classes are designed to not only teach your children to be physically safe, but also to share life tools that will help them with school and their relationship to others.


    Here are some of the skills they will learn:

    ·     Being unafraid of bullies

    ·     Knowing how to speak up if someone is making them feel uncomfortable

    ·     Disciplining/Controlling their bodies and behaviors

    ·     Meditation practices

    ·     Noncompetitive self-defense

    ·     Street safety

    ·     The Art of Listening

    ·     Interactive learning through martial arts drills, games and practices

    ·     Learning the art of Kung Fu San Soo


    If your child has ever participated in one of our one-day assault prevention classes, you know how effective our training can be. Every Saturday your child will learn skills which will keep him or her safe while also helping them in every aspect of life.


    Note: while course fee is monthly, students can begin enrollment any week.  For more information: team@andresalvage.com

    Sharing Wisdom through the Art of Storytelling: 

           Rape Prevention—Healing the Family Legacy of Rape

    Date: Saturday, January 26th

    Time: 11:30 am to 12:15 pm

    Location:   Presidio Letterman YMCA 

    1152 Gorgas Ave. 

    San Francisco, CA 94129

    Suggested donation: $10. Students are welcome to donate, but not expected.

    Sponsored by: André Salvage and Associates and Kung Fu San Soo

    Rape Prevention—Healing the Family Legacy of Rape

    Master Barbara Koehler’s grandmother was raped at 18 years of age and this violent act meant deep shame, stigma and secrecy. Somehow, she survived, got married and had Barbara’s mother. But the legacy of shame, powerlessness, and guilt stayed with her family and has been passed down and manifested in a variety of ways that we can label as both healthy and unhealthy. 

    “Kung Fu means so much more than just defending myself.”

    Master Koehler will share how the history of her Grandmother’s rape has affected the women in her family and how this art and her life’s journey have and continue to reframe the historic story of past trauma. 

    See the Wisdom Keeper page for more information.

    Being a father of seven children (four of them Girls), I realize the safety concerns parents have for their children. Like many parents, I am tired of seeing young girls traumatized out of their innocence. This workshop is designed to help young girls have the awareness skills to avoid danger, the assertiveness skills to set boundaries and speak up when someone is testing the water to see if she is a victim, and the self-defense skills to stop someone from harming them.

    This workshop will not cause young girls to become paranoid, but rather to become objectively aware of the dangers that exist. The workshop will empower them with tested skills to handle, avoid, control, or stop threatening situations.
