It might seem far-off, you might even still have snow on the ground! But before you know it, Summer will be here, and with it: longer days, no school, and lots of free time for kids. It’s never too early to start planning for the inevitable joys and challenges of Summer!
Summer is a time for fun, yes, but while our kids have so much time on their hands, parents can end up overwhelmed and over-committed just trying to balance busy lives with the time demands of bored kids. And we don’t want them to just sit inside all day glued to digital devices, either, but kids today have to be much more alert than earlier generations. Watching the local news can terrify any parent, but with some simple safety strategies and carefully planned activities, we can face these challenges and feel much more confident about our children’s safety AND the quality of their Summer experience!
Here are some essential safety tips you can teach your child NOW:
Anti Bully Strategies To Share with Your Kids
Posted: August 01, 2018
Summer is winding down and Back to School season is in full swing. Parents are anxiously getting their children prepared to return to school, while kids experience their own anxieties about making new friends, facing new peer pressures and unfortunately often having to deal with bullying, which these days often follows them home via social media.
In this article and video Victor King (Owner of King's Celebrity ATA Martial Arts) discusses some anti bullying coping strategies to share with your child to help them avoid becoming a victim this upcoming school year.
Bullying is a hot topic; Most parents are aware of the eventuality that their child might face some bullying situations in schools or with their peers, however most parents also assume that if there were a problem the child would confide with them about the situation. Unfortunately this is rarely the case, as children who are being bullied statistically do not share this information with adults. Bullying has been around since the beginning of time, and is unlikely to end any time soon, so the best we can do is empower our children with the skills to not be a victim.

Talk to Instructors, are they qualified?
It's important to know the qualifications of the instructors at a martial arts school. Ask about their training and find out if they are certified. People who want to teach martial arts may be personal trainers who are certified as martial arts instructors, or they may have certification from associations within their sport. For instance, a good martial arts instructor may have a certification from an organization like the American Taekwondo Association. Instructors teaching karate for kids should also be certified in first-aid and CPR in case a child is injured during class.
If you’re interested in having your child participate in competitions, you need to verify any certifications or licenses required by state law. In California, amateur competitive matches must be sanctioned and supervised by an amateur sanctioning organization for matches involving martial arts forms that include blows or strikes to the head. At King's ATA Celebrity Martial Arts, our students compete in the Tournaments, that begin with district / regional tournaments and continue on until World Championships where finalists from all over the world compete in one of the largest Martial Arts tournaments in the world.
