For confidence, focus, and achieving anti-bullying tactics 100% Agree! And for anyone who has any questions feel free to ask. This is where Lila studies martial arts. She has been here for over 2 years now and as a parent I checked out about 4 other schools before deciding on this one. Very happy with our decision and Lila Loves it here!

Master Chris and the entire team are wonderful to work with. They really took the time to get to know our little guy. His concentration and focus have really improved over the last few months and his behavior at school has improved as well. Definetly worth the investment.

How to Avoid Being a victim of Bullying

 

How to Avoid Being a Victim of Bullying

 

According to Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center, one in four students reported they were bullied during the school year, and 14.8% of high school students in the United States have reported that they were bullied online.

 

The consequences of bullying can be devastating.  Children who are bullied are more likely to experience a decrease in their academic performance, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems.

 

How can kids avoid becoming the victim of a bully? Here are some tips that can be highly effective to combat being the victim of the name calling, teasing, and harassment associated with this behavior.

 

   1. Be Confident

Typically, bullies tend to focus on those who appear to lack confidence and are unsure of themselves.

  • Kids need to have inner confidence, and the ability to project that confidence outward. This means standing tall, making eye contact, being friendly and taking pride in their appearance.
  • Parents can help build their children’s confidence by building them up and supporting them. When children know that they are valued, they automatically have confidence.

 

   2. Gain the Support of Friends

Typically, bullies tend to take aim at children who are ‘loners.’ Support from friends is a highly powerful force against bullies.

  • Kids who stick together are targeted less
  • Remaining in contact with those friends – in the halls at school, on the bus, or in the cafeteria for example, can make them less of a target

   3. Stand Up

When a child learns to stand up for themselves, it goes a long way in shutting down the chances of further victimization.

  • Stand tall, look the bully in the eye, tell them to stop and then walk away

 

Kids have the power to stop bullies, and martial arts can help them find that power. We teach confidence, teamwork, respect, courtesy and pride in our students.  These qualities go a long way to combat bullying.
