Free Kids Bully Defense Workshops

Hyper Bully Defense


Swan’s Martial Arts Academy is a leader in Buffalo and the Western New York community in helping our children deal with and help prevent bullying.  We’ve teamed up with martial arts instructors and schools worldwide to reach out to kids in our communities and help them put an end to bullying.

  • Every 7 minutes a kid is bullied
  • 85% of the time there is NO INTERVENTION
  • Each day, 160,000 students miss school due to bullying
  • Bullying is the leading factor in suicide among kids 11-16
  • Over 50% of Teens have been bullied online!

We invite you to join us for one of our Free Kids Bully Defense Seminars.  These 45-90 minute seminars are for children ages 6-8, 9-11 and 12+ years old.  This event is open to all kids in our community and they do not need any experience in martial arts to attend.  You and your child will not be sold to during these seminars.

Our seminar will cover some of the basics of defending against a bully. Kids will learn the following:

  • Bullying Statistics
  • What is a Bully?
  • 5 Types of Bullying
  • What happens if you are a Bully
  • 10 ways to Help End Bullying

The goal of this seminar is to:

  • Empower our youth to speak up if they are or see someone getting bullied
  • Give them some basic knowledge and skills to protect themselves
  • Inspire them to put an end to bullying in their school and community

We are in the process of selecting dates for our next FREE Bully Defense Seminars for 2018.  Please check back or call us to inquire about our programs.  We also offer Bully Defense Workshops for Youth Groups, Boy Scout and Girls Scout Troops,   School presentations and more.

These seminars can fill up fast so call Master Ken Swan at (716) 685-7926 to register your son or daughter.


Kids Kempo Karate

We offer three age-appropriate Kempo Karate programs for your child:

Little Dragons – Ages 4 & 5

This program is designed for preschool aged children and prepares them for some of the physical requirements of school.  Movements from our system are broken down to help your child improve their strength, coordination and balance.  Students begin learn basic exercises, listening skills, teamwork and more!  Our Little Dragons program improves overall confidence and develops respect for others.

Little Ninjas – Ages 6 to 8

Our Little Ninjas program is designed for school aged children and helps them to develop the physical and mental skills to help them become successful students. Focus, listening skills, physical health, self-confidence and self-discipline are key areas of this program. By working with each other, students build team work and respect for others. Students will develop better self-confidence as they learn new skills and take on class challenge drills. At this level, your child will begin to learn ways to defend themselves against bullying. Students learn verbal, mental and physical techniques to help keep them safe and follow the rules in school. All skills are age appropriate.

Kids Kempo – Ages 9 to 13

Our Kids Kempo program continues our traditional martial arts program developing the more demanding skills required in school. Students will develop focus, understand goal-setting and how to achieve them, improve listening skills, team work, respect for self and others all while developing themselves physically and mentally to be strong confident kids.

Our goal is to better prepare your child for the demands of school and life by helping them to develop self-confidence, self-respect and the self-discipline needed to be successful in today’s world. By focusing on these areas, your child will learn how to defend themselves against bullying, develop positive relationships and resist the negative effects of peer pressure. The classes are designed to be fun, energetic and challenging while building strength, increasing flexibility and reinforcing the positive effects of living a healthy lifestyle.
