Voice

Most of us have one. Sometimes we use it and sometimes we don't. I always ask my students to practice using their voices. I believe this is an important thing to practice since it is our second-best weapon in any self-defense encounter. Learning to use your voice effectively can save your life, it can de-escalate conflict, and potentially keep an attacker at bay. When I am working with kids I always try to get them to advocate for themselves. As parents, we are not able to be there for our children throughout their day. As a former teacher and veteran playground/recess monitor, I know that kids have conflicts. Conflicts can be large or small. My first question was always  "well did you tell them to stop?" if the answer was no then I would ask the student to go tell the other student to stop before coming back to me. 

I run North Valley Martial Arts the same way I ran my playground. At the end of class most days, we play variations of freeze tag or other games. And there is always some type of conflict. I want my students to learn how to deal with problems without my intervention. They will run into bullies all through life. Kids need to grow up with the confidence that they are able to handle those situations by using their voices. They need the confidence to speak up when the time comes. I believe this is an important part of what we do at North Valley Martial Arts. 

Would you like your children to have more confidence? More discipline? Learn to defend themselves? To gain the tools and knowledge to handle conflict? We can help!
