What Is Ryer Academy's Bully Prevention Program About?
The mission of Ryer Academy's Bully Prevention Program is to ensure that all children are treated with dignity and respect by teaching children to bully-proof themselves, helping parents understand how to effectively intervene in bullying situations, and to assist government officials, administrators, and educators how to effectively address the problem of bullying in schools. Ryer Martial Arts Academy believes that increasing awareness about the impact of bullying is important, but clearly that's not enough. What is needed are practical solutions that work!.
How Does Ryer's Bully Prevention Program Work?
Ryer Academy has developed a unique curriculum for kids that uses martial arts as a vehicle to teach concepts to prevent bullying. We believe a key to preventing bullying in any environment begins and ends with respect. Without a foundation of respect, nothing can really be successfully taught or learned. Alongside the physical lessons of self-defense and exercise; Ryer Academy integrates the concept of representation into their martial arts classes. Our students learn that the way they act is a direct representation of their life and those in their life. Through this concept, our students begin to consider their behavior inside and outside the dojo knowing it's a reflection of their parents, friends, and school. This is a powerful way to curtail behavior that might otherwise be considered bullying. Finally, we teach a series of proven verbal deescalation techniques and strategies which empowers our kids to stand-up for themselves and confront the bully with the aim to find a peaceful solution knowing full well that they have their physical self-defense skills to fall back on.
