Learn how to Stop Bullying with Krav Maga

To learn how to stop bullying, it is essential to understand the fundamental concepts of self-awareness, confidence, and the ability to use verbal techniques to defuse dangerous situations before ever becoming involved in a physical predicament. Some facts to consider when deciding whether your child should learn how to stop bullying.

  • 90% of kids aged 9-13 have reported being victims of bullying.
  • 10% of students drop out of school due to bullying.
  • 25% of teachers see nothing wrong with bullying.

Bullying can take many forms, and part of how to stop bullying is understanding when it’s happening. Telltale signs of bullying include:

  • Threats and intimidation.
  • Physical violence including punching, pinching, kicking and more.

Kids Martial Arts Courses for Safety & Self-Esteem

NYC self defense for kids classes at International Krav Maga New York can help your child not only protect him or herself, but improve fitness, behavior, and outlook as well! Our self defense for kids improves balance, self-esteem, discipline, and focus, as well as sharpening your child’s insight and intuition to avoid and escape potentially-harmful predicaments. IKMNY’s preventative kids self defense covers techniques used by elite Israeli forces to identify and avoid threats before they must use any other form of defense, so safety is always practiced before violence is used. Between our real-life methods of physical defense, emphasis on self-respect and discipline, and fundamental discouragement of unfocused violence and aggression, Krav Maga is a great way to protect your child while shaping confidence and integrity that will last into adulthood.

NYC Self Defense for Kids & Self-Awareness

NYC self defense for kids is an essential component of keeping children safe in modern-day New York, but violence should be used only after caution has been taken to avoid threatening situations. Although our techniques equip Krav Maga students to protect themselves, our overarching goals are to improve your child’s motor skills, spatial awareness, confidence, and instincts, and to make him or her better able to bounce back from traumatic events should they ever occur.
