Back To School Bully Buster Bootcamp
Local Martial Arts Academy owners Rick & Christine Bjorkquist are taking a stand against the ever increasing incidents involving Bullying. “I was picked on, teased, and bullied when I was younger, ” Rick Bjorkquist says, “I was lucky to find a martial arts academy whose emphasis was on developing my self-confidence that helped me to survive the challenges I faced back then. Even before I achieved my Brown Belt, I wanted to have my own Academy and help kids just like me.” Rick met his wife Christine, who was a McHenry County Sherriff’s Deputy for 11 years, through the martial art called Kyuki-Do, and together they have made it a priority to educate their communities in Stranger Safety, Bully Prevention, and the importance of Leadership & Character Skills.
With more and more children taking weapons to school because they feel it is the only way to protect themself or missing school in fear of bullies, bullying is at an all-time high! The Bjorkquist’s, through their combined total of over 50 years in the martial arts, are providing a full day day-camp to prepare your children with tools to deal with bullying that actually work! Not only will your family learn hands on Self-Defense Skills against grabs, pushes, etc., this revolutionary day-camp will teach your kids HOW to stay calm in front of the bully, WHAT to say to the bully, WHO to interact with, and WHEN to respond. YOUR children, OUR youth & teens will learn how to remain calm, utilize “word blocks” to deflect verbal attacks, and redirect it away from themselves.
