Self Defense

Self-defense isn't just about punching and kicking through deadly situations. It has more to do with being confident, alert, and aware in all kinds of situations and surroundings.

Amanda Leach

My son Adrian is learning so much and his behavior at home and school has been significantly better since he’s been attending Rochester Kung Fu & Fitness. He follows directions much better, is more patient and respectful! His focus is also much better. Because of his character development sheets he has to fill out for class, he’s very eager to be helpful at home and have a good behavior so that it can be recorded on his sheet. Altogether, we are so happy to be a part of such a wonderful family. We are appreciative of being able to take part in such an awesome experience and hope to continue for many years.

KIDS ARE CLASSIFIED AS OBESE

Children need our support. We work hand in hand with parents to ensure our students make the right choices. At Rochester Kung Fu and Fitness we work with each student one on one with support when needed.

Develop High Self-Esteem

The physical and psychological effects of bullying are often extremely harmful, far-reaching, and long-lasting. Bullying commonly begins by the 2nd grade, and occurs throughout life. Bullying can be physical, verbal, or indirect, and can range from mild teasing to spreading rumors to pushing and hitting. Bullying frequently occurs on the internet as well. Having high self-esteem gained through martial arts training helps children stand up to the negative issue associated with bullying. It is important for a child to develop a high self-esteem and strong friendships to distance themselves from situations where they could be bullied.

Building Strong Leaders

The team of instructors at Rochester Kung Fu and Fitness in Rochester, NY is empowering adults and children to resist and overcome the harmful phenomenon of bullying by building strong leaders in the community through Martial Arts. It gravely concerns Professor Paul Gruschow when children are victimized by anyone, especially their peers. Being a victim of a bully can lead to a child avoiding school, developing life-long anxieties, plotting and performing violent acts of vengeance, and even committing suicide.

We Give You The Tools To Succeed

Here at Rochester Kung Fu and Fitness we equip you and your children with the tools necessary to succeed in every situation. We will teach your child to walk away (while staying calm and not running), tell the assailants to stop and leave him or her alone, and to use humor to rapidly halt a bullying situation. Making eye contact with others (especially the bully) and to talking with a strong voice are also shown to reduce the occurrences. Naturally, we also teach skills for self-defense when conflicts turn physical.

This is a GIFT that will last a lifetime through school, college and into the work world.
