Paraphrasing a movie, have you stopped to think why your friends are scared when they’re alone?
For the same reason we get afraid. Not just the simple fear of something bad happening, or someone big and mean attacking us, or getting beat up and hurt.
The problem with “bullying” is that the cowardly act doesn’t end there. What follows is always overwhelming and traumatizing shame. The shame of not being able to protect one’s self from the cruelty of the world.
JIU-JITSU AGAINST BULLYING
For this new affliction of the century specialists prescribe countless remedies, psychologists and talks with parents. But they ignore a simple preventive measure: the practice of martial arts.
Jiu-Jitsu, as masters Carlos and Helio noted back in the 1930s, is the most effective way to inject confidence and a sense of security into kids, beings inexperienced in this mad, mad world.
Make Jiu-Jitsu that bodyguard ever present with your kids, armor to be used anytime, anywhere. Sign your kids up for Jiu-Jitsu. They’ll never walk alone again.
