It is my position that every child, male and female, should be exposed to martial arts at a young age. It will enable the child to have the confidence to stand up to bullies, and more importantly, to retaliate successfully when things get violent. I too was bullied, but one day I decided that merely defending myself from the bully was not enough, and I let go on him....after that, his nose never looked the same, and i was never bullied again. Today, I feel bad about how far I took things, but I am glad that I received the training to do what I fell was necessary. Bullies must not win, and students should not fear going to school because of bullies. Honestly, martial arts cost only $100-150 per month per child and it is a great investment. My kids have been going for years and have learned so much. They go to competitions, interact with confident kids from families that can afford extras like martial arts, and the sometimes win and lose but most importantly train hard and exercise discipline. I recommend that ALL parents do this....it is probably the best decision you will ever make, and the money is honestly peanuts compared to what you (your child) gets in return. That all said, I am kinda glad that not everyone can afford to do this, because as a result, my kids will have an advantage in both self-defense training as well as mental discipline and work ethic.
