Boys Self-Defense and De-escalation
Bullying is still a big problem in schools. Sometimes it is physical bullying, and other times it is emotional bullying. There is a moment when making fun of each other, pointing out each other’s differences, and challenging each other turns into a painful experience that causes young men to act out in many inappropriate ways.
There’s a good chance that on some level, your son has been bullied or, even worse, bullied someone else. This workshop will help 11 to 12 year old boys successfully navigate the challenges they may face in higher grades.
