Brave the Bully
Safe Practical & Effective Method to Stop being a victim of Bullying
Bully by definition requires an “Imbalance of power”. This can be either physical or social. It’s not always the smaller child getting picked on. Sometimes, a child will be picked on who is unwilling or unable to stick up for themselves.
Sensei Rick Alford has dedicated years of research on the most effective and practical ways of handling bullies and designed a program that is easy to learn, remember and follow.
Kids are taught:
- The 3 Roles of Bullying
- How to A.C.T. ™
- A.: Avoid – Students learn strategies to avoid trouble all together. Our students learn to be leaders, making the right choices.
- C: Communicate – When trouble find them, our students are empowered with intelligent communication strategies that can defuse a conflict before it becomes violent.
- T: Tactics – When faced with no other choice our students will be ready to respond to physical aggression swiftly. Our students learn the most practical and useful self defense available today! When students are truly confident in their abilities, they become much less likely to be targeted for violence.
- The 3 types of responses and which one’s to never use!
At Defensive Edge Martial Arts, we teach safe, effective methods of dealing with bullies without having to resort to violence. Children learn to use their words properly and carry themselves in a way that makes them less likely to be targeted.
When kids learn our self protection techniques, they become more confident and are less likely to become victims of bullying. Students are taught to use common sense before physical self defense. However, students can be confident that they will have the means to protect themselves if it is unavoidable.
