Often we don’t know, but it is safe to assume that at some point in school, another child will try to bully yours. Will your child be ready with the self-confidence and self-discipline necessary to walk away unscathed? If you’ve prepared your child with kids mixed martial arts, he or she should be.
For starters, kids mixed martial arts make it less likely that your child will be targeted in the first place. MMA for kids instills confidence and poise. Your child will walk taller and prouder, radiating calm confidence. Bullies of all ages look for easy marks, and your child, no matter how shy, does not need to be one. Kids mixed martial arts provide a chance to master new skills and develop confidence in addition making children more aware of their posture. (Somehow, an MMA class does more good than mom or dad saying ‘stand up straight’ a million times a day!)
