September 23, 2012 (Spring Valley)--"Bullying is tough on kids. It's tough for adults because no one teaches the grownups how to handle it!" says Scot Conway, Ph.D. "Very often, adults end up playing the bully's game. With every good intention in the world, adults end up giving power to the bully."
On Friday, September 28, 2012, Guardian Quest Martial Arts will host a seminar by Scot Conway. http://www.GQDojo.com The event will be held at 2782 E. Sweetwater Springs Blvd. in Spring Valley. Scroll down for details, and view flyer for more information.
At 5:00 he will be teaching children (and adults are invited to watch and participate). The kids will learn a powerful mental trick to avoid emotional hurt called "Armor." Conway will teach them some social techniques, and a few physical moves they can use just to stay safe.
At 6:00, he will teach adults what to do! Conway will talk about the limitations of the school system and how you work within those limits to get bullying dealt with in school. Most importantly, he will teach a system called SEAL: Stop, Examine, Ask, Lock.
"Lock" includes a very unique and powerful technique. "Can we agree...?" is the signature phrase to remember. The goal is to cut past all the stories and denials and get to the solution. Conway's "Lock" technique does that. It will either solve the problem at hand, or it will diagnose the real problem. Then, at least, you're working to solve the real problem.
If all bullying were criminally violent attacks, bullying would be an easy, straight-forward problem with an easy solution, Conway believes. Victims learn self-defense. You get police involved. Bullies get in very concrete trouble. Adults have a pretty good idea how to deal with that level of physical bullying. At the Guardian Quest Martial Arts Bully-Stop seminar, we will learn what to do with what really happens to our kids.
