Rockaway Valley School, in Boonton Township, NJ, is sure to stimulate increased interest in parents seeking an effective Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County after they present Ryan’s Story to their district’s students and parents on February 9, 2012.
Ryan’s Story is the truly chilling and heartbreaking story of middle school student Ryan’s Halligan’s suicide at the age of 13, following intense and prolonged bullying from his peers at school and online. Ryan’s father, John Halligan, has since dedicated his life to traveling to schools throughout the US and Canada and appearing on major mainstream TV and press media outlets to educate parents, kids and school staff about his son’s story, how to handle bullying situations and the warning signs to be careful of that signify that a serious or potentially life threatening situation could be at hand. Halligan also spearheaded the passage of the first US anti bullying legislation in memory of his son, as well as a mandatory suicide prevention education legislation for public schools, both of which are in effect and being built upon, including in NJ, where an anti bullying law was put into effect last year. Given the literal epidemic of bullying occurring at all age levels and the fact that our state has taken a strong stand against this deeply damaging problem, there is no doubt that an effective Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County is an essential part of taking the best care of our children.
Real World Mixed Martial Arts in Denville, NJ offers a progressive, positive and empowering Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County that will help prepare your child physically, mentally and emotionally for not only bullying situations, but for many life challenges in general.
What specifically makes our program different from other schools that offer a Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County? Most martial arts programs rely on striking the aggressor with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. The Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County that we feature takes a different approach. All the techniques are purely defensive and utilize no strikes. They are based in the training of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the only non striking martial art that is dedicated to a smaller, weaker person subduing or defeating a stronger, larger one by the use of leverage and proper technique. We first and foremost teach children how defuse confrontations with words and never to initiate physical aggression. If attacked though, we offer techniques to non-violently neutralize the threat and gain control until help arrives. Not only will we teach your child the skills to defend themselves against physical and verbal harassment through discussion and role-playing, we will also teach them how to try and diffuse the conflict before it becomes physical. We also realize that bullying has taken new formats, such as cyber bullying. The program will also help your child effectively deal with that increasingly common form of harassment.
The Kids Anti Bullying Program in Morris County available at Real World Mixed Martial Arts has 3 primary goals:
1. Instill Confidence: Bullies are less likely to target self-confident children. We instill confidence by teaching techniques that enable your child to stand tall, look the bully in the eye and thus be less of a potential target.
2. Increase Awareness: Harassment from bullies can be physical or verbal and delivered at various intensity levels. In each lesson, we focus on teaching your child to recognize and respond to the most common physical and verbal bully behaviors.
3. Ensure Readiness: Only when your child makes it clear that he/she will not tolerate the harassment, will they free themselves of the bully’s torment. We will prepare them for every common contingency.
