Bully Proof Your Child
Bullying has reached epidemic proportions and occurs in schools across the country. Every day the news features stories of extreme bullying. Yet, all types of bullying exist. Being the target of a bully can take a serious toll on your child's physical, mental, and emotional health. Whether it's verbal, social, physical, or cyber-bullying, millions of kids fall prey to peers who terrorize them. Bullies don't target a child once. It tends to be a repetitive form of mental or physical harm. At Basin Vernal Martial Arts & Kids Karate Center we believe in arming children with the tools to stand up to bullies the right way.
Help Your Child Develop the Skills to Protect Themselves
At Basin Vernal Martial Arts & Kids Karate Center we offer free community Bully Proof Workshops for children of all ages and experience levels. Our goal is to make our communities bully-free. Enough is enough! It's time to stop the epidemic and help all children thrive in school without the threat of teasing, taunting, or physical harm. Our highly skilled, professional instructors teach children techniques and martial arts that will build their confidence and boost their self esteem. An empowered child is much less likely to be the target of bullying. Our workshops teach children:
- How to Recognize a Volatile Situation – We teach kids how to recognize the signs of bullying and how to determine if the situation will escalate. Techniques for a situation that may lead to physical harm include avoiding being alone, staying in a group of people, and telling an adult. We don't believe in advocating violence. Instead, we promote handling the situation before it reaches that point.
- How to Avoid Bullies – Part of the focus of our Bully Proof Workshop at Basin Vernal Martial Arts & Kids Karate Center is avoidance. While this is not always possible, we educate children on trying to avoid the situation altogether.
- Taking the High Road – When a child is empowered and confident they don't feel the need for retaliation. They do not let the bully's attempts to provoke them lead to a serious confrontation. We help children build self esteem so that annoying bullies won't push them over the edge. Our instructors also provide information for dealing with the situation in a mature, age-appropriate manner.
- Self-Defense – Our Bully Proof Workshops show children valuable, easy, logical self-defense tactics to be used as a last resort. When all other techniques have failed and your child is at risk for being the target of violence, they need to know how to defend themselves and diffuse their attacker. Even if they never use the skills the learn, they will have confidence knowing that they can defend themselves if the situation arises.
