EVENTS & NEWS
I got into boxing because I was bullied and it was my way of dealing with the bullies of my day. Â I learned how to work hard and gain confidence in myself without letting the bullies get the upper cut. With everyone learning about the Kickin It Campaign and how to help todays young generation deal with the bullying, we can help them strive for a better tomorrow.

I am a parent of a child at S.Creek middle school. The effect of bullying hit our home hard April of 09. My husband walked in to our 11yr old (then 10) with a knife about to cut his wrist. We talked to him and ended up at the ER that night. By the next afternoon he was in Fourwinds. He was being bullied by a child in his class. Â He is doing well now! But as a mom the last thing you ever want to hear is, I don't want to live anymore. I think the "Kickin It" program is great. I would love to be more involved in your program. Thank you from our whole family! ~Jolene Â NY
Thank you so much for coming to Kennedy Martial Arts school today!!! My son and daughter (the twins) talked about this all night long. They both said it was the "best thing that ever happened to them". I think they just feel a little more assured that they are NOT ALONE in this matter. Traveling Mercies upon you ~Kristen H.

Hi, my son helped you at the MMA weigh-ins in San Jose. Thank you for letting Dino help you!! He had a great time! He was so excited when he got home!! As a mom thank you for shining a light on a common problem that kids face every day at school. When kids are in school they tune things out, because they consider it more learning. By bringing your campaign to events that are of interest to the kids makes them feel it is cool to be a part of. Thank you. ~ Brandy Â Oakland,Ca
Look at my 7 YEAR OLD reading about BULLYING...We're Kickin™ It. She was so into it when I explained to her. She wanted to come to the next school and be a part of it! She was reading aloud and we went thru it all with her. Giving her examples and such, it was amazing! SAD, It's happening at this age.~Sue Â S.I NY
How can I get involved with this? I took martial arts for years because I was always the one that got picked on in school & taken advantage of~Terri B. Â S.I, NY
