Training in a Kids Martial Arts program has more than just the obvious benefits, such as self-defense, self-discipline and physical fitness. The need to stand up for yourself can not only be frightening to a young child, it can create intense stress and worry. The best way to deal with bullies is to build confidence. Training in Tiger Schulmann’s Kids Martial Arts helps kids become physically stronger, increase coordination, learn self defense techniques and how to apply them, essentially becoming more confident!
Kids Martial Arts Training builds confidence, so a child will be less likely to even be on a BULLY’S Radar!
“Some people may think that bringing a child to a kids martial arts class is going to instill in them the desire to fight,” said Sensei Scott Zapfel, the head instructor of TS MMA in Wayne. “Nothing could be further from the truth. Kids needs to feel safe, so being stronger, learning self defense, and discussing Bully-Proof techniques, provides that feeling of safety.”
Kids Martial Arts will provide Security, which Leads to a Feeling of Confidence
The governor of New Jersey recently signed the toughest anti-bullying legislation in the country into law. Schools will now be held directly responsible if reports of bullying, on or off school grounds are not attended to and taken seriously; in addition to mandating schools providing programs to help quell the epidemic of bullying. Unfortunately however, no law will solve this problem. To solve Bullying a child must build the confidence to stand up for themself. Tiger Schulmann’s has been teaching a Bully-Safe program for thirty years now, instilling the confidence in kids not to be this victim.
Does it work? Well just ask the parents of the kids who have started Kids Martial Arts classes because of bullying issues. All of them will give you a resounding YES!
Many parents bring their kids to Tiger Schulmann’s of Wayne to help them build confidence or break out of their shyness. A child with no confidence or who is painfully shy, unfortunately is potentially at a greater risk of being bullied. Kids who appear weak are the favorite targets of bullies. Appearance can be deceiving, however. Strength and confidence may not change the meek appearance of a child, but confidence will always show through when confronted by a potential bully. The list of kids from Tiger Schulmann’s Kids Martial Arts program who have overcome being bullied is constantly growing. And very few have had to be physical.
Everything taught at Tiger Schulmann’s is done so with safety as the main concern. Putting kids in a one on one situation, such as actual and realistic kickboxing, allows them to not only get better at their martial arts techniques but learn a lot about character, heart, commitment, and toughness, and what parent doesn’t want to see their child improve in all of those qualities.
