Bullying at School: How to Stop it for Good

kids bullyproof in Lakeville

Once you and your child keep practicing these skills of focusing and refocusing, your child will naturally start to internalize it.

They’ll start applying these skills all on their own. It’ll become second nature the more you practice it.

Like we mentioned before, these skills don’t just apply to tantrums. A strong foundation of life skills give a leg up when it comes to getting their homework done, learning in a classroom environment, and being a part of the family as they grow older.

These early years of ages 3 and 4 really are where successful habits are formed- and martial arts is a FUN and purposeful way to build those habits the right way!

Year after year, we’re inspired and motivated by the transformations we see in the behavior of our preschool students.

Come see for yourself how martial arts classes can change your young child’s life and make a more peaceful home!

Teaching Confidence in Our Martial Arts Classes

Martial Arts Classes

You may be wondering- Can your child actually learn how to stop bullying at school through martial arts?

YES! We teach kids confidence-building through the way they talk to themselves (which we’ll cover in just a second).

We also show them how to plan and achieve the goals they set for themselves. As your child ascends through the belt ranks, they’ll see how their hard work pays off, and become really proud and confident when they’re setting and getting goals.

That excitement of achievement, and the way we practice respecting and listening to others, will help them gather the internal strength to feel confident in standing up to any bully they encounter on the playground, in the classroom- or even in their own head.

Plus, we show our students the almighty power of positive self-talk. “Self-talk,” also known as mindset, refers to the way that kids address themselves in day-to-day life.

This self-talk can either be encouraging and positive, or discouraging and negative, and we teach our students the former to keep their confidence blossoming.

Positive Self Talk to Combat Bullying

Martial arts isn’t always easy, especially for kids.

They are just starting the process of learning hand-eye coordination, focus, balance, and motor skills (which martial arts classes expedite, by the way, giving your child a competitive advantage in school ).

When presented with the challenge of learning a new move, they can start to think, “I’m dumb. I’ll never learn this. I’m failing. I don’t want to try again or else I’ll just embarrass myself.” But our world-class instructors are quick to intercept this, teaching positive self-talk.

Our students learn what positive self-talk sounds like : “I’m trying. I’m proud of myself for trying. Yes I can, and yes I will. I will not give up until I succeed.”

As anyone who’s been bullied knows, bullying can really get you down. Oftentimes, a bully will pick on things that a child is most insecure about.

Building that positive self-talk in class will not only help a child become more confident to stand up to the bully, but it can start to diminish the burden that repetitive negative comments create in our kids.

Nonviolent Ways to Stand Up to Bullies

Nonviolent Ways to Stand Up to Bullies

They will not become a bully themselves! Instead, martial arts the way we teach it, will help your child learn how to use other tools in their toolkit to de-escalate a tense encounter, like a bullying experience, using nonviolent methods of conflict resolution.

From day one, we show students that martial arts should only be used when absolutely necessary. It’s a good thing to know you can pull out when needed, but it’s not going to be your first go-to when you’re dealing with a bully. Instead, we show students that their words and confident actions are their best defense against bullies.

When they have straight posture, they exude confidence- remember, a confident child is 90% of the way to bully-proofness! The bully will be taken off guard as they’re used to an unconfident person.

We also teach our kids that martial artists use their voice first to stand up for themselves and others. Bullies choose targets who seem shy or easily bothered- “the lamb”.

We show our kids that they can be lions! Strong, courageous, and steadfast leaders who aren’t afraid to do what’s right, without having to take the claws out.
