Every child has a right to feel safe!

"27% of students in grades 4 to 9 claim to experience  being  bullied  on a regular basis"

As a parent, we can feel helpless when it comes to dealing with bullying. Often we just support our kids and hope the issue will go away over time. 

Unfortunately, in most cases, the bully is doing it to feel tough or important, so it's unlikely they will stop.  

That fact of the matter is if your child is experiencing regular bullying, it can have long term effects on their confidence and school work, and in some cases, their long term mental and physical health can be seriously affected.

Bullying is a serious problem and requires a serious  solution!

Real Solutions Workshop 

Our real solutions workshop has limited places to allow us to focus on providing each attendee with safe and effective tools to help kids deal with bullying.

We also provide strategies to deal with bullies at school, so kids can deal with situations without getting themselves in trouble for retaliating.

The issue of bullies has become a major issue in society. Whether your child is a victim of bullying, or is the perpetrator, this is an extremely stressful situation for both the child and the parents to deal with.  The growth of online social platforms has, in some instances, increased and intensified the issues, as bullies can potentially harass their victims around the clock.

While there is no single perfect way to prevent a child from being a victim of bullying, there is a lot that can be done to reduce the risk. One of the best ways to help children cope with issues around bullying is to improve their self-confidence and work on emotional strength.

What tends to be the catalyst for being targeted is, for example, the victim overreacts to something that is said, or gets angry at a joke at their expense; this can then single them out as a target because the bully knows they can get under their skin.

Developing self-confidence and building emotional strength will equip children to better deal with situations where bullying takes place. These important life skills help children recognise and avoid situations that can lead to bullying, and will also give them the confidence to speak up if a situation does arise.

Defusing and avoidance
One of the key aspects to all a good bully defence program is learning ways to defuse and avoid situations that may lead to being physically or emotionally attacked. To do this, Martial Arts instructors teach students verbal defusing skills, as well as pattern recognition (get to know the feeling when something can escalate).


We also see as their self-confidence grow in these areas - any potential issues with bullies just seem to diminish or go away altogether.

What about self-defence?
So far we have focused on what I believe is one of the most important skills you can possess for dealing with bullies (avoidance skills). There are, however, situations where the threat puts your child in immediate physical danger. In these situations, children who are trained in self-defence are better equipped to avoid getting hurt, and take action to get out of danger as quickly as possible.

Regular self-defence practice will help children to remain calm and to take action to protect his or her self.
