Bully Workshop Update:

         What a fantastic experience! Our Workshops and School Talks were amazing! Many kids, parents and teachers were empowered and happy to participate! We held 2 Workshops at our facility and out of popular demand we repeated them again the next week! In the community schools, Sensei taught altogether 21 classes of 2nd grade through eighth grade and had this to say:
          "I can?t begin to tell you how privileged I felt to be able to share with children the ways to be empowered with confidence, physical & mental strength, assertiveness and knowledge to avoid being targeted by a bully! I was so touched by the honest stories the kids told me about their bully experiences and how impressed I was with their vulnerability and strength. I was amazed by the interest and feeling all the kids had when we discussed this difficult topic. At the same time, it broke my heart to hear the kids talk about their experiences and suffering when it comes to being bullied in their lives. It seemed like all of the kids had fun working on the various assertiveness drills we practiced as well as the sport fighting and bully defense drills. I think that a good workshop program should leave the attendants with the desire for more. I sensed that all of the kids were interested in more training at our studio."
We also created a "Wall of Change" where pledges were made to not be bullies and to help the victims of bullies how ever we can. The picture to the right is the final with another 40 pledges. It is very encouraging to see evidence of change!
