Bullying at School: How to Stop it For Good

Bullying at School

As you and your child continue to practice these skills of self control, focus, and emotional regulation, your child will learn how to do this 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 an incredible advantage when it comes to schoolwork, learning in a classroom, and becoming a responsible person as they get older.

These early years of ages 3 and 4 really are where successful habits are formed- and martial arts is a FUN and fulfilling way to build those habits the right way! The transformations we see in our youngest kids year after year is really what motivates us and drives us in our preschool classes. Come see for yourself how martial arts classes can change your young child’s life and make a more peaceful home!

Confidence Helps Against Bullying at School

Teaching Confidence in Our Martial Arts Classes

Teaching Confidence Brooklyn

You may be wondering- Can your child actually learn how to stop bullying at school through martial arts? YES! We teach kids confidence-building by strengthening their internal self-talk (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 their efforts produce big wins, 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 teach our students the almighty power of positive self-talk. “Self-talk,” also known as mindset, is how a child talks to themselves in day-to-day life. This self-talk can either be encouraging and positive, or discouraging and negative, and we teach our kids to tend towards the former.

Positive Self Talk to Combat Bullying

Learning martial arts, which is such a physical sport, 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 academic settings ).

When they’re struggling to get a certain combo right, 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 fast to correct this, coaching with more of that positive thinking.

We show students how to have a success-based mindset : “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, bullies can sense what we’re feeling the least confident 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 heal some of those wounds that repetitive negative comments create in our kids.

Nonviolent Ways to Stand Up to Bullies

Lastly, of course, is the actual self defense piece that martial arts is famous for. Don’t worry- martial arts will not make your child violent or aggressive, or promote high kicks and punches aimed at their brothers, sisters, or peers.

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 physical self defense is only to be used in emergency situations.

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! Bullies will be surprised to this kind of reaction as they’re used to someone who backs down easily.

We also teach our kids that martial artists use their voice 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.
