Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts of Bensonhurst will be hosting a Bully Prevention Seminar for children and parents of the community, October 18 from 3:30-5 p.m. at Tiger Schulmann’s of Bensonhurst, 8501 New Utrecht Avenue.

The seminar will focus on teaching children basic bully prevention skills through interactive skits, demonstrations and crowd participation for both children and adults, all conducted by the black belt instructors of Tiger Schulmann’s Mixed Martial Arts.

These fun and educational activities will teach children how to avoid and discourage bullying, what to do when encountering a bullying situation, how to communicate bullying situations to teachers and family, how to handle physical confrontations and how to be confident in a non-aggressive way.

Parents will also be coached on how to identify signs that their child is being bullied, how to keep the lines of communication open on the subject of bullying and will be provided information on bullying resources.

“Being bullied can be devastating to a child. And out of embarrassment, most kids never tell their parents about it,” said Sensei A. Viscovich, head instructor of Tiger Schulmann’s in Bensonhurst. “No child should have to be subjected to the fear and trauma associated with bullying. Our seminars are specifically designed to empower kids to be able to stand up for themselves, to not be afraid and to be confident enough to repel and discourage bullying.”

The free Bully Prevention Seminar is part of the Tiger Schulmann’s CHILDSAFE (sm) program, established in 1992 as a program designed to teach awareness about child safety in our communities, and to encourage communication between parents and children about these vital issues.

Parents should call Tiger Schulmann’s of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn at 718-234-8443 for more information and to reserve space for their child in the seminars.
