Enrolling a child in a martial arts program is one of the best actions a parent can take to prevent bullying. Martial arts can help children on both sides of the bullying equation. We believe that prevention is the best solution to bully situations. We guide our students to spot potential bullying before it happens.
Bullying happens in nearly every school to kids of all ages. Bullying is becoming more and more frequent among today’s youth in locations like school and online, according to recent bullying statistics: 28% of students between the ages 12-18 are bullied each year.
We are excited to announce the launch of our redesigned website! After many months of planning and development our new site now incorporates significant changes, which improve and streamline your experience.
