Back-to-School season is here and the transition to higher grades can be tough for some, as youth exposed to bullying can increase dramatically from elementary school to Junior High and into high school. Research shows that bullying peaks in the 5th, 6th and 7th grades. The goal of the program is to minimize the effects of predatory behavior. This will be accomplished through role playing, small group discussions and empathy training. Focusing on Awareness, Avoidance and assertiveness.
SBKM will be hosting a 4-day Anti-Bullying seminar
Monday Sept, 23rd -Thursday Sept, 26th 5pm-6pm for preteens at $100 each and $75 for each additional sibling. Students will be taught how to address multiple scenarios common in school settings where physical violence may occur, and self-defense becomes the last resort. Give your kids the gift of safety and self-care and the confidence, that they may walk in peace. Keep an eye out for the flyer and be sure to pass it along to your friends and fellow parents at upcoming “back to school” nights and orientations!
If you want to step up your training and drop into a combat cardio class. It is only a $5 drop-in for members, $15 for non-members. Combat Cardio classes are Mondays, Weds, and Fridays 6am and 6pm, and Saturdays
9am. If you want to add it to your current plan be sure to talk to SBKM staff at the front desk for further details.
