One comment I heard was that the handout was objectionable. Have yet to see same, so withholding judgment.
That was version 1...youth-appropriate version was rapidly issued.  The original referred to using alcoholic beverages, among other things.

FWIW: I presented the material as the monthly CD, alongside safety and it was very well received by the cadets.

For the most part, they agreed with Eclipse: The "Counter" or "fight" is primarily intended for adults, but if hiding
or running isn't an option, they'd throw a desk, or anything else they can grab.  They all agreed, without prompting, that being backed into the store cupboard or similar was a very bad option.

Indeed one handout by a reputable source was more adult orientated than youth orientated.  It was "recalled" for that reason.

On another note, the Chaplain Corps was tasked the day following this tragic event by the National Commander to put together this session for our cadets.  Normally, lesson material takes a while to develop.  This lesson, in a quick response to the tasking by Maj Gen Mark Smith, was in the field in less than 2 weeks.
