Done With Bullying | Free Children’s Seminars
Masters Academy are strong believers in personal safety. We have done our best to arm our students with practical life skills that will help them in real life. As part of that, we have made an effort to address the bullying behavior that continues to be prevalent in modern society.
Although extremely important, we believe that it is not enough to just teach our students how to defend themselves against bullying. We want to teach them how damaging bullying can be, so that they will be less inclined to bully others as well. We also want to arm them with effective strategies that they can use to come to the aid of others being bullied.
For all these reasons, we are proud to announce that Masters Academy are now part of the “Martial Artists Against Bullying” (MAAB) movement. This is an international organization made up of professional martial arts instructors from all over the world.
The MAAB has put together a comprehensive anti-bullying programme called “Done with Bullying.”
In order to make the maximum impact on our community, we require an even mix of students and non-students to participate. For that reason, we encourage all participants to bring a friend or classmate with them.
As a proud member of MAAB (Martial Arts Against Bullying), Masters Academy will be holding mini seminars on the ‘Done with Bullying’ programme, with the purpose of helping children of all ages to overcome the impact of bullying. This program will teach participants:
The purpose of this programme is to help children of all ages overcome the negative impact of bullying. This program teaches
Awareness – How to identify predator behaviour
Avoidance – Realistic ways to avoid being a target of bullying
Assertiveness – How to stop bullying behaviour
Research shows that bullying peaks in the 5th, 6th and 7th grades. The goal of this program is to minimize the effects of predatory behaviour in grade school and middle school-aged children. This will be accomplished through role playing, small group discussions and empathy training.
Session I – What is bullying? Why do people do it? Why is it bad to bully others?
