As you know, we are strong believers in personal safety. We have done our best to arm our students with practical life skills that will help them in real life. As part of that, we have made an effort to address the bullying behavior that continues to be prevalent in modern society.
Although extremely important, we believe that it is not enough to just teach our students how to defend themselves against bullying. We want to teach them how damaging bullying can be, so that they will be less inclined to bully others as well. We also want to arm them with effective strategies that they can use to come to the aid of others being bullied.
For all these reasons, we are proud to announce that we are now part of the “Martial Artists Against Bullying” (MAAB) movement. This is an international organization made up of professional martial arts instructors from all over the world. The MAAB has put together a comprehensive anti-bullying program called “Done with Bullying”. Anti Bullying Arizona in conjunction with The Budo Shingikan School of Japanese Martial Arts will be utilizing this program for the benefit of our school and our community.
We will be hosting an upcoming anti bullying Arizona seminar on: March 22nd 2014 at The Budo Shingikan Dojo located at: 4840 E. Jasmine Street Suite 104 Mesa Arizona 85205. This seminar will run from 9am – 11am and is completely FREE of charge. Please register early as the seminars will fill up quickly.

The Women’s Self-Defense Workshop on March 1, 2014 was such an empowering experience. Throughout the workshop participants became aware of several things;
1. There are so many misconceptions when it comes to self-defense & attacks against women.For example, the neighborhood is safe, using common sense will prevent attacks, and there is no way to get away from a stonger attacker,therefore compliance is best.
2. How to utilize tactical thinking instead of emotional thinking( getting past the anxiety) in life-like scenarios.
3. How to establish strong verbal boundaries and portray confidence so that we are not seen as a victim and therefore are less likely to become a victim.
4. That women have so many weapons to utilize if we are faced with an attack that have nothing to do with size, weight,or strength. We can do damage by using tactics like knee kicks, open handed hits, scratching ( we have nails!), biting, poking eyes etc.
