Victory Martial Arts schools have become widely known in their various communities on Long Island, for their strong anti-bullying program. VMA’s anti-bullying program aims to help children of all ages to not only stop bullying, but also to guard against all future incidents.
VMA’s philosophy involves shifting the power balance back into neutral ground. With a background in martial arts training, your child will be physically stronger and faster, as well as better equipped with the appropriate skill set to defend themselves against potential bullies. Moreover, martial art training empowers students with confidence to walk the halls of their school bully-free, and gives them the security every child needs to focus and learn.
In every class, students will be taught not only how to kick and punch but the appropriate times and ways to use their self-defense training. Scenarios are brought up in a question-answer based environment, where the kids discuss with their instructors possible consequences and outcomes. Alternatives to fighting including avoiding potentially bad situations, finding an adult, and Options such as avoiding a fight, getting a teacher, or talking to the bully are discussed as preferable alternatives. In fact, the number one martial arts philosophy for kids is that they should never have to fight. Bullies don’t pick on kids who are confident when they walk, make eye contact when they talk, and are as strong physically as they are mentally.
