As most of you are aware, I have become a Guardian Angel under the direction of 25 year Guardian Angel veteran Sean P. Kelley from West Palm Beach, Florida. My main focus as a Guardian Angel is to begin a Guardian Angels Anti-Bullying Leadership Program at my school, Miller’s Kenpo Karate Dojo, located at 443 East Main Street, Bradford, Pa 16701 to teach the importance of servicing our community and to educate about bullying and how to handle bullying situations. We are on a “Stomp the Bullying” campaign and this active program will do just that.
This is a three month voluntary program for children (ages 7 and up) and adults as a service to the community. The program will include an in depth manual as a reference guide to everything that is taught in the program. It’s focus is to learn how to be good citizens and to learn how to rectify the bullying epidemic we have in our society by teaching people how not to be a bully, the three T-Steps to verbal harassment and the rules of engagement in dealing with bullies. Aside from that, self-defense movements, strategies and tactics will also be taught in the program, as well as physical restraint moves to control and negotiate. The movements taught in the program come from American Kenpo (a modern practical system of self-defense – one of the most comprehensive systems of today) and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, a world known art that teaches submissions and control movements.
Those who enroll in this FREE program, after going through three months of training, the children will graduate as Jr. Angels and the adults will graduate as Guardian Angels. Graduates of the program will then become leaders for the next group, since every three months we will start the program over with new people.
If you want to be a part of our first session this is your opportunity. Our first session will begin on Sunday, June 26 at 2:00pm. We will meet every Sunday from 2-3pm. We want all parents of any child who enrolls to also be a part of this program. If you aren’t a parent, but would still like to enroll we will gladly take you.
If you are interested in signing up e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 814-368-3725. It’s going to be a great program for our community.
