Benefits of our Stop Bullying Program
Building Up Confidence Can Stop Bullying
In Martial Arts classes, you’re instructed to stand at attention and project confidence. Take those same skills out of martial arts classes into the way you walk, stand and present yourself at school and elsewhere. Martial arts helps prevent bullying by building up children’s confidence in other arenas, so that they won’t need to resort to bullying for attention or approval.
Reinforcing Discipline Can Prevent Bullying
Martial arts helps prevent bullying by providing children with a clear-cut and consistent structure of discipline that helps them learn which types of behavior are acceptable and which are not.
Increasing Respect Can Stop Bullying
Martial arts helps prevent bullying by showing bullies that everyone deserves respect, and that no one deserves to be mistreated. Martial arts helps stop bullying by showing bullied children that if they want others to respect them, they first must learn to respect themselves.
Learning Self Defense Can Stop Bullies
When bullying crosses the line into violence, and you are afraid you may be injured, it is important to know how to defend yourself. A rule in any defense situation is just do enough, run and report.
