Last week, the Waterloo community welcomed PRO Martial Arts as a new and exciting fitness resource for kids; bringing with it an all-encompassing curriculum that exercises mind, body and safety! Aside from the traditional martial arts studies, PRO Martial Arts’ ARMOUR™ program teaches children how to stay safe in an increasingly dangerous world with lessons on how to stand tall against bully behavior and predator activity – both online and on the playground.
ARMOUR™ Anti-Bullying and Predator Prevention is a program designed by child psychologists, educators and law enforcement professionals exclusively for PRO Martial Arts. The program provides children the competencies to identify bullies and the proper steps to take to avoid falling victim to the intimidation. Children are taught how to carry themselves with confidence; how to set and respect personal boundaries, and how to be assertive when seeking help.
Students in the ARMOUR™ program learn that the real safety issue doesn’t always lay with strangers, but with STRANGENESS. The children grow to recognize how important it is to listen to their instincts and why they should always tell a trusted adult about their uneasy feelings. Students walk away from the program aware of appropriate and inappropriate adult behaviors and the importance of good communication between them and their parents on a daily basis.
