Bullying is a modern day scurge made even more insidious by the evolution of social media.
The Upper Hutt Hapkido Academy take this issue very seriously and we have invested in the "Bully Busters" programme created by Dr. Terrence Webster-Doyle, one of the world's leading authorities on conflict education, the "Bully Buster" system is an age appropriate way to teach children about bullies. This program will give children the tools they need to understand and resolve one of the biggest social concerns facing children today – how to cope with a bully without having to use violence.
The Upper Hutt Hapkido Academy is a provider of this programme and we can provide a free 1 Hour seminar to any school or youth group in the Wellington area as part of our contribution to the wider community.
There are two age specific programmes within the Bully Busters programe:
Bully Busters ages 6 - 8
Bully Busters ages 9 - 13
The Bully Buster programme focuses on Mental Self Defence and has 12 proven strategies that help students deal with bullying in a non-violent way. There is no physical self defence aspect to this programme. Only in Junior Hapkido do we teach the physical skills to deal with physical aggression.
