All Family ATA Taekwondo Offers Free Bullying Prevention Seminar To The Community

Moline, IL – All Family ATA Taekwondo has announced plans for a community Bullying Prevention Seminar scheduled at 380 Avenue of the Cities, East Moline at 10am, February 23, 2013. The seminar is part of ATA Martial Arts' worldwide initiative to help educate our communities in preventing Bullying Behavior. With over 350,000 active members and 1,200 schools in the U.S. and abroad, the ATA is flexing its muscle against Bullying by teaching free Bullying Prevention seminars in our communities.
As part of our campaign to prevent bullying, the ATA has partnered with an international group who is largely recognized as the authority on Bullying Prevention, the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program.
According to local ATA instructor Anthony Linnabery, education is the key to Bullying Prevention. "One in three kids are affected by bullying and the impact is enormous. Consequences of bullying include anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, physical ailments and lower academic achievement. Through age appropriate instruction, direct training and open houses such as this one, collectively ATA schools around the world hope to have a significant impact on reducing the extent of bullying and victimization", says Mr. Linnabery.
Attendance at the Bullying Prevention Seminar is limited to 40 children. To register call All Family ATA Taekwondo at 792-0066 before February 22, 2013.
