Having children in Martial Arts programs helps them in many less obvious ways. They are learning social mores and goal setting, in some cases before they even step into elementary school. Here at Dragon Within Martial Arts we believe one of the that the most central aspects of martial arts is Self-Discipline. Children engage in both mind and body during class. They learn listening, self esteem, and teamwork skills. Helping them to develop in these areas, has a direct effect on their confidence, fitness, and they are able to navigate though other parts of their world.  Their behavior in school improves, their concentration, respect and ability to cooperate improves, making for a happier, healthier academic experience. 

The best part is, ITS FUN! They are learning and growing all the while absolutely engaged and enjoying themselves. Some of the topics that we tackle throughout the year include, Handling Bully situations, Respecting others, having a positive attitude and being assertive

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!
