The heightened focus on school security following the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut has led some teachers and administrators to enroll in self-defense training. In Washington state, such courses have drawn between 10 and 15 participants seeking to learn tae kwon do techniques. Krav Maga techniques are being taught to educators in Decatur, Ala., and officials in Springfield, Mass., have decided to make self-defense training mandatory -- taught by the police department -- for administrators and optional for teachers and other staff.
