In the past, elementary school teacher Shelley Thompson, an elementary school teacher, told WKMG-TV she thinks she "would have been so fearful gone into shock."
“I don't look at it like it's doing Karate on anyone. I look like it's defending their children and my students," she said.
These tactics are not district policy in Seminole County and no known schools are considering adopting the techniques, but Hudson said that two schools in Seminole County, individually, are reaching out to him, to train teachers.
There will be another training next month at Lake Mary Champion Karate.
