August 3, 2018


Hey FC Parents & Kids,

FightClub will be closed this Monday, August 6th for the Civic Holiday.BUT¬†there will be class this Saturday, August 4th ūüôā ¬†– ¬†So bring the kids!


A few reminders …


Firstly, the FightClub Youth Program will be taking a short summer break from August 10th until September 3rd. A regular schedule of classes will begin as of September 4th.


Secondly, I will be conducting¬†a special Anti-Bullying Workshop¬†for the Kids at FC. A bully’s behavior patterns and victims selection are usually determined in the first few weeks of school. I will show the kids how to detect the bullies but more importantly how not to become the target of a bully.¬†

The workshop is open to FC students, their friends, and family members too. 


Anti-Bullying Education Workshop 

Saturday, September 15th at 1pm-2:30 pm

Cost is $25

Bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves¬†a real or perceived power imbalance. Kids who bully use their¬†power ‚Äď such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity ‚Äď to control or harm others. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors,¬†attacking someone physically or verbally and purposely excluding¬†someone from a group. Both kids who are bullied and who bully¬†others may experience serious, lasting problems.¬†FightClub approaches anti-bullying head-on by using principles of¬†redirection and straightforward assertiveness. Students are taught¬†to manage situations without the use of violence first, learning ways¬†to assess threats, redirect verbal assaults and mobilize the¬†audience, which is a critical factor in empowering the bully. ¬†In a nutshell, I want to teach your kids how to deal with a ‚Äėbad guy‚Äô¬†without becoming a ‚Äėbad guys‚Äô themselves. I want them to find power¬†and confidence in what it means to be good.¬†

If you facing these challenges with your kids please bring them by FightClub for a few classes and see what Systema Training at FC can do for them first hand.
