Dealing with Bullying - Our approach
At Rivals, we are dedicated to instilling a comprehensive and practical understanding of Martial Arts to stop and prevent bullying from adversely affecting our child and youth practitioners.
Bullying comes in many different forms, especially when kids are alone and away from friends or family. In our classes, there is a strong emphasis on identifying the many signs of bullying and
learning how to de-escalate without resorting to physical altercations studied in class. We encourage the kids to talk openly about any issues they come to encounter.
The benefits of Martial Arts for your child
As with almost everything in life, starting early in life is the best way to go.
Our goal at Rivals is simple; to give our children essential self-defence knowledge to empower them with life skills, confidence and a healthy sense of self-esteem learned through Martial Arts. In today’s reality, we must be as vigilant as ever. Martial Arts provides necessary tools to safeguard our kids from a wide array of threats and give them the confidence to do so intelligently and independently should the need arise.
