Bullying is the top factor that prevents kids from enjoying a happy school life and a future, as it is evident from the astounding stats released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Department of Education. These disturbing data show that 49% of all school-going children are subjected to bullying, and 12% are subjected to the more damaging variant, cyberbullying. This shows that despite the combined efforts of law, adult-intervention and awareness among children, parents and educators, we have not yet succeeded in erasing bullying from our schools. It is time to think of alternatives.

It is Time to Act: How Bullying can Damage your Child

We cannot wait anymore for law and intervention to prevent bullying, because the damage it can do (or has already done) to our children are often irreversible. Unlike popular beliefs, bullying leaves a negative impact in not just the bullied, but also the bully. It harms anyone who is involved in it. Children who suffered bullying from childhood may develop personality issues like social anxiety, quiet moods, insecurity or deeper psychological consequences like depression and suicidal tendency. Bullies, on the other hand, already may be plagued by insecurities and frustrations in life, and engaging in bullying only worsens these. A past bully may fall to antisocial behavior, substance abuse or psychological issues. Being a bully can forever ruin them, interfering with their career, relationships and all aspects of life. In short, both the victim and the bully need help and bullying need to be prevented at all costs.

A Martial Arts Solution for Bullying
As long as bullying continues to throw up alarming numbers and stats, it indicates a failure of the system to prevent it. The only way out here is to equip our kids with something or other that will help them to defend themselves if they are a potential victim or restrain from bullying if they are a potential bully. The following are some of the ways in which martial arts can be a perfect solution for bullying in this way.

In the case of victims,


  • Martial arts act as a good and powerful self defense
  • It helps them to stand up to the bully for themselves and others
  • It teaches them confidence and courage and gives them physical strength
  • It gives them the emotional courage to get over past bullying


In the case of bullies,


  • Martial art gives a positive vent to their excess energy and pent up emotions
  • It makes them compassionate and sociable
  • It makes them self-disciplined and controlled
  • It helps them to get over their dominating and overpowering nature


Teaching martial arts to your children can be a good and sure way to ensure that he/she is not part of bullying, either as a victim or as a bully.

Bruce McCorry’s Children’s Martial Art to Prevent Bullying
