About the Author

In 1985, author Irene van der Zande protected a group of eight young children, including her own two, from a man who was threatening to kidnap them. This frightening experience led her to take her first self-defense class and then to work with experts worldwide to establish Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International in 1989. Kidpower today is a global nonprofit leader in protecting people of all ages and abilities from bullying, violence, and abuse through awareness, action, and skills.
