Krav MagaMental and Physical Training for Children


Dragon Within knows that the days of children being terrorized by schoolyard bullies are far from over. In fact, reports from elementary and high school administrators indicate that violence and taunting are at an all-time high. Is your child the victim of bullying? If left to their devices, bullies can have a huge impact on your child’s life. It will affect academics, self-esteem and even his or her safety.


Krav Maga is an excellent antidote to this trend. With confidence and physical strength from this technique, your child will be able to respond to attempts at undercutting his or her routine at school. Krav Maga is the ultimate mental and physical training for children of all ages. Here are its best features:






  • Teaching leadership skills: Krav Maga’s founder quickly realized he had a gift and needed to help friends in Slovakia’s Jewish ghetto develop survival skills. This technique teaches children to be leaders; to stand up for what is right; to protect friends; and help band together to thwart the efforts of evil forces. Allowing your child to be a leader in his earliest communities will be a positive experience later in life.


Whether or not you fear your child is being harassed by bullies at school, Dragon Within’s Krav Maga training is a terrific way to teach dedication to physical and mental development in children from the youngest ages. We take the time and effort to make sure all our kids are in a safe environment and that they know how to handle themselves when being bullied.

What can you do to protect your child from bullying?

The key to helping your child if he or she is being bullied, is to be familiar with the warning signs of bullying.  Talk with your children.  Be involved.  Talk with the school and if they don’t have a bullying program already, help set one up.  Statistics show that schools that have bully programs–bullying is reduced by 50%.

The second way to help your child cope with bullying is to enroll them in martial arts.  Studies show that children enrolled in martial arts, make better, more thought out decisions and are less likely to be influenced by their peers.  Martial arts also gives kids confidence.  Which can be beneficial in many aspects of your child’s life beyond bullying.  Confident children are less likely to be picked on in school.  Confidence can also help your child with their school work and getting through day-to-day activities. 

At Dragon Within Martial Arts, Salem MA; we strive to teach kids how to intelligently cope with bullying.  We teach children that violence isn’t the answer… to use their “common sense before self-defense”; however, if that doesn’t work, we will give your child the skills needed to properly defend themselves from physical and mental bullying.  Unlike traditional martial arts schools, which focus on tournaments and fancy moves; Dragon Within  Martial Arts teaches the most realistic self-defense system for your children that’s fun, interesting and extremely beneficial for the positive development of their future.

Along with learning something that’s fun and keeps your kids physically active; our age specific curriculum, teaches important social values and instills a high level of confidence within children:  starting with our Little Dragons Program (ages 4-6) to our Junior Programs (7-13) all the way up to our Teen Martial Arts Program (13-16).  Dragon Within helps children cope with being bullied and peer pressure.  We not only help kids cope with being bullied  but we instill positive social values such as: respect, honesty, humility, dignity and help children get along with others and treat them with respect.  Instilling these social values early on will help prevent your child from possibly becoming a bully.

Knowing self-defense empowers children with powerful techniques, strategies and confidence for life-long success!
