Fitnance's Luke C Gregory and Jason King have been reporting the benefits of Martial Arts in the prevention of bullying for a while now.
I just picked up the Courier Mail and saw a good article reinforcing the benefits. Checkit out: Kung Fu classes give bullying the chop. The Courier Mail. Thursday 24th March 2010 Page 26
Miami State School on the Gold Coast has been offering students Kung Fu lessons. The classes are voluntary and are recommended to children with behavioral problems as well as victims of bullies. They have had remarkable success. Kung Fu is the art of choice because of it’s teachings of discipline and self confidence. This is through teaching self control, respect and discipline whilst being a fun physical activity that allows the kids to get their frustrations and energy out in a safe controlled environment.
