Bullying at School: How to Stop it for Good

Bullying at School - Grafton

As you and your child keep practicing these skills of emotional regulation and self control, 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, this foundation gives them an incredible advantage when it comes to completing their homework, 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 the habits of success are formed, however you define success- and martial arts is a FUN and purposeful 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

As you and your child continue to practice these skills of self control, focus, and emotional regulation, your child will naturally start to internalize it.

They’ll start applying these skills all on their own. And the more you practice, the more intuitive it’ll become. Like we mentioned before, this foundation gives them a leg up when it comes to schoolwork, learning in a classroom, and becoming a responsible person as they grow.

These early years of ages 3 and 4 really are where the habits of success are formed, however you define success- and martial arts is a FUN and fulfilling 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! INSERT KIDS LINK

Teaching Confidence in Our Martial Arts Classes

You may be asking yourself- Can your child really 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 how their hard work pays off, and become really proud and confident when they’re setting and getting goals.

That feeling of accomplishment, 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 that crosses their path 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, 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 students the former to keep their confidence blossoming.

Positive Self Talk to Combat Bullying

Benefits of Martial Arts for Kids

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 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. Encouraging a positive mindset in martial arts classes 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 physical aspect of martial arts that makes it famous. 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 diffuse an elevated situation, 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 have in your back pocket, but it’s not going to be your first go-to when you’re dealing with a bully. Instead, we show students that their voice and their posture can be weapons all their own. 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 an unconfident person.

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.
