Self-defense starts with knowledge and confidence. Being more aware and safety conscious is one of the most important ways to protect yourself. Whether you're an adult or want to bully-proof your children our martial arts programs cater to these needs. We also offer Bully-Proof seminars and Kid Safe Workshops. Let's face it. Bullies are everywhere and every school has them. They taunt, tease, shove, and beat up other kids. Indirect bullying -- where kids are ignored or excluded -- can be just as devastating as a physical assault, say experts. The Bully Proof Workshop provides elementary, middle, and high school students with tips and strategies for handling bullies, which is a big problem facing children today. Students are made aware of the physical, verbal, and psychological aspects of bullying along with steps that can be taken to deal with bullies.
