Fight Kid Bullying

Your child can be a part of our Tiger Rock Martial Arts classes and learn anti-bullying exercises. It is crucial that we fight kid bullying in today’s society. So many kids endure bullying. Because of this, our academy has designed classes for all ages. Students will learn the importance of how to simmer down a tough situation.

There are ways to deal with other kids that are being mean and nasty. Today kids have to worry about more than just face-to-face bullying. Consequently, there is online bullying that is tearing apart kids. There are ways to deal with what is building up inside of you. The anti-bullying exercises will teach your child how to deal with a bullying situation.

Martial Artists Against Bullying (MAAB)

Dave Kovar is the founder of Martial Artists Against Bullying (MAAB). “The mere act of training in martial arts and having children develop a higher level of confidence decreases their chances of being bullied in the first place.” The mission of MAAb is to unify the martial arts community in an effort to educate, inform and eradicate bullying. There are free resources to martial arts academies in order to help make families aware of the problem. MAAB is teaching kids how to avoid being a target and how to stop bullying from happening.

Families need to sit down together and identify:

  • Awareness: how to identify predator behavior
  • Avoidance: realistic ways to avoid being a target of bullying
  • Assertiveness: how to stop bullying behavior

Anti-Bullying Curriculum

Here, at Tiger Rock, our instructors have an anti-bullying educational curriculum so they are prepared to weave anti-bullying education into their classes. Our certified trainers will educate and empower kids to identify bullying and take appropriate action if they are confronted with bullying. One way to put an end to bullying is awareness. Nothing can be done about this situation if no one is made aware of it.

Kids need classes and good distractions in their lives. That is where our martial arts classes come in. These classes will give them a good balance. Don’t forget parents – we have classes for you as well. Welcome to Tiger Rock Martial Arts!
