What are the Statistics for Bullying in schools?

Most kids who get bullied want to know how to protect themselves using martial arts.  Truth is, the martial arts itself isn’t what will be the greatest asset to your child resolving their bulling issues.  The key is the confidence they gain through martial arts.  Reality of it all is that WORST CASE scenario–they will use their martial arts skills for self-defense.  We want them to learn how to intelligently cope with bullying through positive social values and disciplines.  Do we teach children extremely practical and realistic self-defense techniques?  Of course we do! However, our goal is to teach them that violence is not the way to solve it unless it is entirely necessary to protect themselves.

The problem with bullying in schools is that there is no clear solution.  The teachers, principals and councilors don’t see the magnitude of the effects that their lack of involvement has on children who are being bullied.  That’s why, as parents, seeking out an alternative to just putting your faith that it will resolve within the school, is imperative to your child’s state of mind and most of all their safety. Talk to your children.  Get involved.  Take Action.
