On May 22, 2013, All Tiger Schulmann’s locations will be sponsoring “Bully Shield.” This is a two-part event which helps children understand and overcome the bullying process.
The event begins with a special seminar, led by each school’s instructor. The seminar is designed to be fun, informative and interactive. After the seminar they schedule the second part of their Bully Shield program where they receive martial arts training. The training is a practical class where the child learns striking and blocking techniques. After attending both classes, the child receives a certificate of completion.
Since their founding in 1984, Tiger Schulmann’s has helped tens of thousands of children overcome bullying in their lives. Many of these bullied children have even gone on to become instructors themselves.
All children, ages 7-12, are welcome to attend. The fee to attend the event is $25. Upon completion of the course, attendees will receive a special t-shirt and a certificate.
“Bullying is a process which develops in stages. Tiger Schulmann has spent many years analyzing the dynamics of bullying. Together with his top instructors, they developed formulas for overcoming bullying at any stage,” states Alon Feder, Director of Marketing.
“The first stage of bullying is a testing phase. The bully will test another child to solicit a response. If the response happens to be fear, or an exaggerated attempt to ignore the test, the bully knows it’s safe to continue the process and escalates the bullying. We teach children to understand the stages involved, and what they can do to halt the process. The emphasis is upon diffusing the bullying verbally and with body language.”
Another extremely important aspect of Bully Shield is to develop self-confidence in the children who attend.
“If there’s anything which stops bullying in its tracks, it’s self-confidence,” says Feder. Bullying has finally reached deeply into public awareness. Though Tiger Schulmann’s has helped children overcome bullying for so many years, it’s in the perfect position to help even more children due to increased the increased media regarding the epidemic bullying problem children face every day.
Tiger Schulmann’s has decided to share its knowledge with multiple communities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. They will show children who have suffered from bullies that there is something they can do immediately. Bullied children can believe in themselves and find that they don’t have to put up with being bullied any longer.
