HKA has now been working closely with schools and community groups within the local area, with great success. It’s my personal aim to help crack down on bullying, and to help out with youngsters and teens.
It can be very difficult to stop the bullies from doing what they do, as it normally stems from their home life and own insecurities.
So at HKA we help build your self-confidence, helping you learn new skills both mentally and physically. This can be enough to give you the upper hand on the people who like to throw their weight around.
Being heavily bullied my-self at school I found my younger years very hard to deal with, and as there wasn’t much support out there for me, I had to learn the hard way which meant to be truthful talking my way out of most scenarios. Although I understand it’s not always possible in all situations, the best and hardest thing to do is simply to walk away. This should always be your first and favored option.
At HKA we can teach you that it’s ok to stand up for yourself whenever you need to. This is your right and not theirs to take away. As a rule, if your being pushed around physically then just by standing strong with confidence in a stance is normally enough to make a bully think twice as they prey on the weak. As for psychological bullying, this can often be worse and I believe it can be harder to deal with. The first step is to be strong within yourself and become a mentally stronger person than them.
Training at HKA is aimed at making it as enjoyable as possible for everyone who comes along, whatever level you are at. It is important to remember you’re not alone, tell your friends and be STRONG.
HKA is always here for you and there is a great family culture between members, we don’t let bullies train at the gym and if we hear of it going on it is dealt with as soon as possible.
Now after working with this system for 3 years, I have worked and helped many children and adults overcome some big hurdles.
This year alone we have worked with a group of SEN children at St Leonard’s Academy, run full day classes at theHastingsAcademy alsoRyeCollege andWilliamParkerSportsCollege. Run 6, six week courses for the PFA totally free to the community.
HKA also work with a small number of autistic, ADHD and children with anger management problems.
So for help and support with any problems no matter large or small, please get in contact today with Instructor Carl Denne on 07949 221946
