National Bullying Prevention Month

November 10, 2010

Bullying is a real world problem that many of us have faced at one point or another in our lives. Today, as many as half of all adolescents are bullied in their academic career, and at least 10% of those are bullied everyday. Bulling can also occur in any other context in which there is human contact and can result in long-term emotional and behavioral problems, sometimes even leading to suicide.

The Sensei Project strives to help teachers help their students to find the power within themselves to put a stop to this prevalent issue. Martial arts master teachers Tom Callos, Fariborz Azhakh, and Diana Lee Inosanto, firmly believe that education is the first step toward achieving this. Thus they have brought a comprehensive on-line bullying prevention teacher training course to the international martial arts community in hopes to do just that. Their goal is to teach people how not be a victim—or a perpetrator—of bullying by preparing the next generation of teachers with the tools they need.

For a book with practical advice and steps towards self-defense and self-awareness, check out Krav Maga: How to Defend Yourself Against Armed Assault. Krav Maga is today’s cutting edge self-defense and hand to hand combat system. Initially developed by Grandmaster Imi Sde-Or (Lichtenfeld) for the Israel Defense Forces and other national security services, Krav Maga has been thoroughly adapted to meet civilan needs. The method was designed so that ordinary citizens, young and old, men and women alike, can successfully use it, regardless of their physical strength. This is the first and only authorized comprehensive manual on the Krav Maga discipline, written by its founder, Imi Sde-Or, and his senior disciple and follower, Eyal Yanilove. This volume especially focuses on the various facets of dealing with an assailant armed with a sharp-edged weapon, a blunt object, or a firearm.
