Mission Viejo, CA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
Goes Jiu Jitsu, a martial arts training school in Mission Viejo, Calif., has formed a traveling anti-bully campaign that will share its important messages with schools and organizations throughout the region.
Through the program, the Master of Goes Jiu Jitsu will head to local schools to teach children the benefits of fitness, positive behaviors and self-defense. These key concepts help young people avoid trouble and handle confrontation and other difficult situations in a much more effective and positive manner.
"All children have to deal with issues of bullying and confrontation at some point in their lives — especially at school," said Allan Goes, Master of Goes Jiu-jitsu. "Through this program, kids now have an outlet to learn how to handle themselves in these situations and how to use martial arts theories for good. Our goal is to do what we can to help schools reduce and eliminate bullying."
Jiu-jitsu is an art form based on respect and discipline. The attention to detail and introspection required encourages success in many areas of young people’s lives, helping them improve the way they handle themselves around bullies. It also can have a tremendously positive impact on their schoolwork, home life and extracurricular activities.
With bullying more pervasive than ever in the news and in American culture, Goes believes that now is the time for parents to allow their children to take a stand. Young people today are forced to defend themselves both in person at school and online in their social media interactions with their peers. This creates a situation where both bullies and victims don’t feel like they can escape the negative behaviors keeping them down.
"Jiu-jitsu can have life-altering effects for the people who practice it," said Goes. "Young people who take part in this art form are more likely to make new friends at school, improve their grades and enhance their level of self-confidence in any situation."
Goes, a six-degree master, has more than 20 years of experience teaching individuals of all ages and skill levels around the world on the merits of jiu-jitsu and other martial arts. Goes Jiu Jitsu is located in Mission Viejo right off of Interstate 5, and is open six days a week for ages five and up.
