Capable KidsPodcast #76 – Self-Defense & Online The Flash Player and a browser with Javascript support are needed..Predators by T I F F I N Yon A C A R LS ST O N , U G U 3 2 0 1 1In episode #76 of No Free Rides, I am joined by Erik Kondo, a paraplegic and self-defense and online safety expert. We discuss how to stay safe in the physical world, aswell as how to protect yourself online, namely from wheelchair fetishists. 0Erik has been a paraplegic for over 25 years, making him more than qualified to Likedispense advice on this sensitive subject. He is the founder of Not-Me.org, a non-profitdedicated to teaching the five D’s of self-defense – Decide, Deter, Disrupt, Disengageand Debrief. Erik is a fountain of information and his advice is a must for anyone new tobeing disabled! We also discuss how to spot wheelchair predators online, as well as those pretending to be a wheelchair-user (“pretenders”), which is another tactic that is used to pry personal information from unaware individuals. Check out Erik’s self-defense site, Not-Me.org, for more information on staying safe no matter the situation.
