Does Your Child Struggle With Bullies at School or in the Neighborhood?
Statistics show that bullying remains to be a huge problem in our society. Kids of a higher social standing or those who may be physically more threatening tend to pick on children who may appear to be vulnerable. They typically do this to feel better about themselves, maybe to cover some of their own insecurities, or to seem “cool” in front of the other kids. Regardless of the reasoning behind it, bullying is often times very traumatic for the victims and can leave deep imprints in a child’s psyche long into adulthood.
Many victims of bullying are already significantly impacted by their experiences, and therefore lack the self-confidence or physical abilities to stand up for themselves. This limits their potential, and can often lead to lingering anger issues that will show themselves later in life.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training for kids is the best way to prevent bullying from happening in the first place, or to put a stop to bullying that is already taking place. It mentally prepares the children to be prepared and aware and gives them the self-confidence needed to stand up for themselves.
This newfound self-confidence is usually enough to make bullies think twice about harming your children. We stress to our students that it is important to avoid physical confrontation when possible, but in the event of an attack on your child outside of the gym – he or she will be prepared to defend themselves.
