Specialized Coaching

By applying a range of teaching methodologies learning and retention is dramatically improved. Children learn best when they are actively engaged in purposeful learning experiences. We ensure this by having the students carry out physical activities, rather than just listening to a lecture or watching demonstrations.

Age Appropriate

The course is outcome-based and is gradually and subtly ramped up with age-specific intensity as the children's confidence grows. We identify the appropriate strategies to support their improvement. We challenge them but constantly set them up for success with positive reinforcement to enhance those outcomes.

Problem Solving

Children receive the tools and training to confidently handle problematic situations which enhances cognitive abilities, motor skill development and communication abilities. Bio-mechanical feedback is used to reinforce good decision making choices so that they learn to adapt to realistic situations while building awareness and confidence.

Reality for Kids

Parents, here are several facts that we do not like to admit are true but we cannot deny:

  • Most attackers will not be hurt by simple kicks or punches from children ages 5-12

  • Children are soft targets and easy prey

  • Self-defense courses are not required during general or higher education/schooling. (However, Art & Home Economics are.)

  • Cell phones are useless in saving a child. 99% of victims cannot retrieve and/or complete a call during a dangerous situation.

Here is an Overview of What We Teach

Developed in Australia and now taught around the World.

The New Anti-Bully Program Schools Do NOT Want You To Know About

Change The Game on Bullies

It’s one thing for a parent to inform a teacher their child is being bullied. It’s entirely different when a certified letter arrives with specific language that creates a new level of urgency and gravity.

This is just one step in this comprehensive program designed by Chris Sutton of Clearwater, FL. Sutton is a former street cop, sheriff, and maximum security corrections officer.

The C.O.B.R.A. Anti-Bully Action Plan is a law enforcement-based anti-bullying program that is non-violent and non-confrontational. The program treats bullying like a crime and follows proven, established protocols to create an evidence trail, a chain of custody, and build a rock-solid legal case against the bully.

As effective as that is some schools may prefer parents not to use the C.O.B.R.A. Anti-Bully Action Plan. Why? Because one of the first steps is for parents to send the principal and teacher a specially crafted certified letter putting them on notice about the bullying.

Non-Violent Solutions to Bullying

Though he is a full-time martial arts school owner, he did not include physical or verbal defense in the C.O.B.R.A. Anti-Bully Action Plan. Sutton says, “It’s always best to know how to defend yourself. Self-defense is the most important insurance you can have. But, this program is not about kicking or punching or fancy verbal defense. It’s about turning the tables on the bullies in ways they never saw coming.”

Build An Evidence Trail on Your Bully

In the C.O.B.R.A. Anti-Bully Action Plan, Sutton teaches how to build a legal case against a bully. The program includes letter templates to send to teachers, principals, and even the school board.

While some programs advocate contacting the parents of a bully, Sutton says that’s not necessary. Sutton says, “Contacting the parents is a stress you do not have to go through.

We’ll show you exactly what to say to the local police so they are legally obligated to go to the bullies’ home and speak to the parents as part of an investigation. A cop knocking on their door will get any parents' attention fast.”

Avoiding Bullies In-Person and Online

The C.O.B.R.A. Anti-Bully Action Plan includes detailed bully prevention strategies for in-person and online social bullying.

One of those strategies details where and when your child may be in “shark-infested waters.” Shark-infested waters are the times and places where bullying is most apt to occur. The bus stop, the playground, and unsupervised time at school are all shark-infested waters.

Just teaching your child to recognize shark-infested waters is a step towards avoiding bullies during that time. Once bullying has occurred, the program provides a step-by-step action plan with scripts, letter templates, evidence gathering techniques, role plays, and specific questions to ask your kids that elicit the answers you are after.

Sutton says, “The idea is to get as many people on your side as possible to build the case against the bully. The result will be massive evidence and possibly legal bills due from the parents. That is about as anti-bully as you can get. Guess what? Those parents will be on your side as well because they will do whatever they can to avoid this process and legal expenses. It’s truly poetic justice.”

Appropriate for (approx) ages 13-19
