For the Community

Sierah Strong for the Community

Sierah Strong is our self-awareness and defense program that we provide to the community free of charge. We teach young people ages 6-16 how to defend themselves in dangerous situations and provide laminated KidPrint IDs that feature their photo, fingerprint, and vital statistics to help find a missing child. 

Since 2019, we have empowered nearly 900 boys and girls with this program!
We have recently expanded to start offering it in Michigan, as well. 

  • Two age-group classes available: 6-10 years old and 11-16 years old
  • The workshop instructor is Sensei Amanda Kaufman of Advancing Karate, Ltd., a Fourth Degree Black Belt, and Self-Defense Instructor
  • Check our events page to see when our next community workshop will be held.
  • Interested in organizing your own Sierah Strong for the Community program? We require a minimum of 20 participants and a location that can provide power for the KidPrint ID machine. Contact Tara Ice at [email protected].
  • If you’d like to attend an upcoming workshop, please register your child here:

KidPrint ID

ID badge featuring either side on top and bottom. The first side shows the child's name, date of birth, and vital statistics, and a photograph. The reverse side shows a thumbprint and a guide for what to do if your child goes missing.

Example KidPrint ID

KidPrint IDs are a way for parents to provide vital information quickly in the event of an emergency. This laminated card has a picture of the child and pertinent information for law enforcement to get out to the community like height, weight, hair and eye color to find a missing child.

The card also has the child’s fingerprint and a list of steps parents should take in a crisis situation on the back of the card. The Wood County Sheriff’s Office also have the  KidPrint ID machine.
