This article entitled "Bullyproofing Your Kids"
highlights Derek Bindner in London, Ontario (Canada) who runs a "Kid Power Bullyproof Program" at his dojo.
From the article: Bindner preaches confident body language and communication skills. If things do get physical, simply knowing how to get out of the way â€" an important part of aikido â€" can help. The program offers "tools and solutions that are intelligent, that won't get them into trouble," Bindner said. He added simply talking about bullying can only help so much. "We need to give kids something real to learn and implement," he said. "It also transfers to the adult world as well."
