Bully Proof and Protect Your Loved Ones.

thumb-kidsafeSelf-defense starts with knowledge and confidence. Being more aware and safety conscious is one of the most important ways to protect yourself. Whether you’re an adult or want to bully-proof your children our martial arts programs cater to these needs. We also offer Bully-Proof seminars and Kid Safe Workshops. Let’s face it. Bullies are everywhere and every school has them. They taunt, tease, shove, and beat up other kids. Indirect bullying — where kids are ignored or excluded — can be just as devastating as a physical assault, say experts. The Bully Proof Workshop provides elementary, middle, and high school students with tips and strategies for handling bullies, which is a big problem facing children today. Students are made aware of the physical, verbal, and psychological aspects of bullying along with steps that can be taken to deal with bullies. Beyond simple bullying, keeping your children safe is of utmost importance as, by now, the stories are all too familiar. A child is missing: vanished from the family’s back yard, snatched from the bus stop or stolen from his or her own bedroom. The pictures on the evening news have become a thumb-bullyproofghostly reminder of childhood lost. These stories are heartbreaking for everyone; the parents’ grief is unbearable. Meanwhile, across the nation, parents fear their child could be next. Justice Department research indicates the risk of abduction by a stranger increases through elementary school and peaks at age 15. Today, it is most important to make sure our kids are being empowered by learning leadership life skills that will keep them safe and to be surrounded by a positive environment with positive leaders. These skills will help build their self-esteem and self-confidence. Our children are our most precious gifts, and deserve to be armed with the tools to keep them safe. Call us today to see about our next Nationally Accredited Bully-Proof or Kid Safe Workshops, or, even better, set up an event for your group absolutely FREE. It is our way of building a strong community and keeping our children safe. Adult self-defense and fitness workshops are also available. “I didn’t think it could happen to me” is a phrase no one should utter. Don’t be reactive…be proactive! Call us today at either our North Tampa location (813-977-8800) or our South Tampa location (813-832-8800).

“Hudson’s 8th birthday party was the best ever! All 40 children had a blast! They practiced martial arts, played games, and danced for two hours straight! All the parents had to do was sit back, chat, snack and enjoy! Our six and a half year old daughter is begging us to have her party there too.
