In fact, more and more parents are turning to the martial arts as a way to stop bullying from effecting their children. And, contrary to popular belief, the right program will not turn your child into an aggressive fighter.
If you're looking for a guaranteed method to both empower your child with the skills for success, and the ability to make the bully look elsewhere for an easy victim, this article will give you several reasons why martial arts for kids could be your best hope. I mean, isn't that what you're looking for after all?
Now, you might think that because I am a tenth degree master-teacher of the martial arts, that I have a biased opinion about the benefits of martial arts for kids. But, I can assure you that is not the reason at all. In fact, it is because I was a bullied child whose parents tried everything before allowing me to join martial arts, that I saw the benefits and how the lessons changed my life...
That I went on and became a master-teacher!
Very different, don't you think?
It is because of the transformation from shy, backwards, frightened victim; to confident, disciplined, and directed leader that bullies stopped attacking me. Not because mommy bullied my teachers and the school principle into doing something about the problem!
And this is the key to creating a situation where your child will know how to deal with a bully - know how to stop bullying. The fact is that, a good, solid program, centered around teaching martial arts for kids, will teach your child lessons, and give him or her lifelong benefits that just can't be bought or obtained anywhere else.
Here are just a few of the benefits that your child will get from a professional martial arts program designed specifically around the needs of children:
- They will learn how to deal with a bully without fighting!
- You will see a marked increase in confidence and self-worth!
- Your child's posture, and therefor their presence will improve - sending a very different signal to would-be bullies
- And, if they cannot avoid conflict and must do so as a last-resort...
- Your child will have the skills and confidence be able to defend themselves and protect others against a physical attack that would otherwise have left them beaten, broken, or worse!
- In short, your child will go from being a victim of bullying, to the strong, reliable, and successful man or woman that you've always wanted them to be!
If you are serious about helping your child, and to stop bullying from effecting him or her, then you owe it to both of you to get help that has been proven for centuries to do the job. How do I know that martial arts will help your child?
I don't. Not for sure.
But what I do know is that the result of my parents enrolling me into martial arts for kids, turned the frightened, bullied, and beaten boy that I once was...
Into the person whom his family, friends, and loved-ones can look up to and rely on today!
Think about it.
Is that what you want for your son or daughter?
If so, then you must stop relying on the programs that only want to change or punish the bully. If you want to stop bullying from effecting your little one, then you must give him of her the lessons that really create change!
And, you must act now. After all...
