Bully Proofing Children
At least 1 in 3 adolescent students in Canada have reported being bullied recently. Among 38% of males and 30% of females reported having experienced occasional or frequent or occasional bullying during their school years. 47% of Canadian parents report having a child victim of bullying and 40% of Canadian workers experience bullying on a weekly basis.
These stats make us aware that bullying is a reality for everyone and bully proofing our children is very, very important.
Children are bullied mentally, emotionally and physically so our approach includes all 3.
Parent involvement is crucial because children who are experiencing Bullying can easily get frozen at the thought of dealing with not only the bully but their teacher, principle and their parents when they get home. Their fear is magnified because they fear getting into trouble for standing up for themselves wherever that may lead. Children are usually very confused as to what is acceptable and not acceptable and everyone from their school, teacher, principle and even mom and dad all could have a different opinion. Bullies also feed on the knowing that their school mates are being told “not to hit back” or really do anything even if they are being physically threatened.
Successfully Defend Yourself Parents
Research has shown that women who successfully defend themselves can quickly recognize threatening situations and enforce their boundaries, if necessary, by physical means. In this four-week self-defense course, you learn to recognize the ploys that assailants use to manipulate women and how you can thwart them. The course is designed to give you time between classes to practice your self-defense moves and become more comfortable with them.
Parents, we will teach you & your child how to:
- release yourself from basic grabs and fight back when necessary.
- use your body language and voice to take command of a confrontation with impact.
- assess your risks, and address them.
- identify the signs to help you de-escalate, defuse, or evade any situation before a physical assault ever happens.
- understand the connections between awareness, threats, and your immediate environment.
We teach more than just self-defense skills
Not only do our self-defense classes help you hone your physical and mental skills, but they also give you a fantastic workout to help you stay in great shape. Plus, our real-world-based training methods will leave you feeling more confident and self-aware at each stage of your training. You and your child can get fit, stay fit, become more self-confident and self-aware, and learn how to defend yourselves in any situation.
Self Care, Self Respect, Self Image
Studies have shown that people who know how to defend themselves don’t have to because of how they carry themselves more confidently, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies. When you combine Self-Discipline + Self-Defense, you get… Self-Confidence. At Great Way Martial, you’ll enjoy an invigorating experience in a welcoming, supportive, and inclusive atmosphere that will test your mental and physical boundaries. At the same time, you gain those oh-so-important self-defense skills.
Kung Fu translates to “hard work, well-done”. We teach our students that “hard work + self-discipline = success”. We define a champion as someone who never gives up. We push our students to challenge the voice inside them that says, “I can’t do that” or “I’m not smart enough, fast enough, or strong enough”. We stand by this affirmation: “I can, I must, I will!”
Harness the power of martial arts for confidence, fitness, and robust-self protection skills. You’ll feel empowered, confident, and full of the desire to take your self-defense skills to new heights. Sometimes all it takes is to replace a boring routine with something more engaging that awakens your inner Amazon. Our classes will help you harness the power of martial arts for incredible fitness, holistic wellness, patience and control, and of course, learning to KICK A$$.
