Studies indicate that less than 15% of students actually report acts of bullying. The sole reason why the majority of students are afraid of standing up against the bullies is because of the fear of physical retaliation from them. Although almost all of the victims know that they must confront their bully, they cannot simply bring themselves to do so. In order for victims to stand up against these physical bullies, they must first feel confident in defending themselves.
By introducing your children to Taekwondo, you can be more than confident that your son or daughter will understand to use verbal assertiveness so that they can diffuse any physical assault from bullies. We often times use the analogy of gun control. If we teach your children how to use Taekwondo, but not when to use their techniques, it is the same as handing someone, but not telling them when to use it.
