Description

This teen, anti-bullying self-defense class is specifically designed for teenagers to learn how to handle bullying, both physically and mentally. Don't be bullied. Be in control. This class goes over the most widely used movements bullies use in school such as headlocks, bear hugs, and wrist grabs. We teach how to escape from these movements as well as how to punch and block. A great deal of the class is geared toward the student becoming the attacker (the one who is being bullied). Grand Master Gene Perceval, the instructor, has been teaching for over fifty seven years. His class covers traditional martial arts techniques and advocates for a world focused on respect, harmony, inspiration, and living in calmness of mind.
