Dragon Within for Anti-Bullying.

So I want to touch base on some of the youtube videos and such that are going viral. What is with these kids and teenagers beating each other till they end up killing one another? Now I wont go into parenting choices, because frankly, everyone does it differently.

It is said from the mouths of kids that bullying is mean. It makes them feel mad, and want to seek revenge. Are our school system doing enough to stop these bullies in their tracks? And what makes these children lash out and bully in first place? Is it anger? Is it jealousy? This is where self control and discipline comes in.

Children need an outlet. They need a place to release all their energy and frustration. At the same time they need structure and discipline. Dragon Within Martial Arts provides the discipline and structure these kids need in their life. They will be in a group with other peers and will have to show respect to each individual and their instructor. They will follow a strong set of rules. Martial arts will teach awareness and help with prevention of that anger that is instilled in so many troubled kids. It will help develop confidence that so many children and young adults lack in their lives. One of the main reasons for bullying is due to the lack of confidence in ones self.

If Dragon Within martial arts is adopted for a longer length of time, the student will learn to attain proficiency. Some people make martial arts a life long pursuit. This will create a stronger mind to body connection and develop self respect and awareness. The student will learn to focus and open up their mind and body to gain some spiritual connection. Now of course this is different to each person and not everyone will get the same result out of it. But the important part is that everyone learns the respect and discipline.

Isn’t that what we need? Respect for each other and ourselves? I mean isn’t the main reason why we bully is for our own self gain? In a dojo, the expectations of each student are so great, they don’t have time to bully one another. At the same time, it is like a family setting. Everyone supports each other and helps each other. Giving a more relaxed atmosphere and friendly environment.

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 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.
