Some Fact About Bullying
Bullying is a significant problem within our society. Recently, an Australian study reported that 1 in 4 kids ageted between 8 and 14 years reported being bullied every few weeks or more, with the highest prevalence rates being reported by children in Year 5 (age 10-11 years).
This means that 25% of children admitted to being bullied, not just once but regularly. It is unknown how many more kids were bullied but were not confident enough to report being bullied in the study.
Many parents rightly turn to martial arts when trying to help their children to cope with bullying. However, most parents do not realise the full benefits that their children will receive from martial arts training. Furthermore, they have no idea what to look for in a martial arts school. Many parents blindly join the nearest martial arts school to them in the hope that the school owner knows what he/she is doing.
You can a really good insight into the benefits of your children will receive from martial arts training by reading 24 reason why your child should train martial arts. A significant problem for parents who are seeking help for their children is that many martial arts schools will tell parents, “Yes, we can help your child who is being bullied at school” and “We have an anti bullying program that will help”.
The reality is most martial arts schools owners, have no formal training in this area, no real life experience in this area and despite their claims they do not have an anti bullying program. They think that just teaching a child how to kick and punch as well as say, “Stop I don’t like it”, is an anti bullying program. An anti bullying program needs to contain much more than that.
Many parents are being tricked into paying for martial arts lessons by some schools who really have no idea what they are doing.
Bujutsu Martial Arts and Fitness Centre has an established Anti Bullying and Chid Safety Program that I personally developed. The program is run through our Karate for Toddlers, Kids Karate, Kids Muay Thai Kick Boxing and our Kids BJJ programs. Our program gives kids the skills they need to live a successful and happy life.
In terms of my own professional experience, I was a member of the NSW Police Force for 23 years, and held the rank of Detective Superintendent, and performed the role of Local Area Commander. As a police officer, I investigated many forms of bullying and assaults, from cyber bullying, to minor physical assaults, to sexual assaults of children and adults, as well as homicides.
I started training martial arts in 1987. I have helped dozens of children who have been the victim of bullying. I have many success stories, including one child who could not look me in the eyes, let a lone talk to me when he first started training Karate with me. Six years later, that child has developed into a confident teenager who holds a black belt in Karate.
A few years back I was awarded the martial arts title of Renshi, however I prefer to simply use the title Sensei. The term Renshi means expert instructor. My qualifications and background can be found at: https://bujutsumartialarts.com.au/instructors/sensei-mark/
