TAE KWON-DO CAN HELP PUT A STOP TO BULLYING AT SCHOOL
Most of us have been bullied at some stage in our lives and know how difficult it can be, especially for our children.
At Action Tae Kwon-Do our instructors can help your child learn skills to deal with bullies. In our classes your child will build confidence and courage through facing new challenges:
- Turning up to the class for the first time is the first step.
- Learning and mastering new techniques.
- Performing techniques in front of classmates.
- Building up strength and fitness through exercise.
- Practicing self-defence techniques.
- Participating in regular gradings in front of peers and spectators.
- Obtaining new belts in recognition of achievement.
All of these challenges are opportunities for your child to build confidence and skills needed to stop a bully.
Your instructor will train and support your child through this learning process.

All parents, carers and guardians are welcome to stay and watch the first 1-2 classes. After this we ask children to be dropped-off/picked-up. This allows children to stay focused on their instructor and gain confidence being by themselves. This can help reinforce the same process seen at school and many other activities.
Our 5-12 year old classes run for 45 minutes. We ask all students to arrive 10-15 minutes before the start time to allow time to sign in and warm up. If you arrive early your child will get up to 1hr of time at class with us.
We offer our students the opportunity to participate in up to four gradings a year. Gradings are an opportunity for a student to be tested on their skills and if successful pass to a new rank. Gradings are also a great opportunity for family and friends to attend and see the progress of the student.
