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.
