STOMP Out Bullying™ is the leading national nonprofit dedicated to changing the culture for all students. It works to reduce and prevent bullying, cyberbullying and other digital abuse, educates against homophobia, LGBTQ discrimination, racism and hatred, and deters violence in schools, online and in communities across the country. In this diverse world, STOMP Out Bullying promotes civility, inclusion and equality. It teaches effective solutions on how to respond to all forms of bullying, as well as educating kids and teens in school and online. It provides help for those in need and at risk of suicide, and raises awareness through peer mentoring programs in schools, public service announcements by noted celebrities, and social media campaigns. 

Bullying can happen anywhere – at school, in the neighborhood, or online. While there are certain risk factors associated with those who are most likely to be bullied, it can still happen to anyone, anywhere.

Bullying can be a traumatic experience that can cause your child to be filled with anxiety. It can cripple a child’s self-esteem and self-concept and lead to an overall poor self-assessment. Your child may lose self-confidence; they may try to avoid being around others. Your child may even withdraw themselves from family.

However, your child can overcome bullying. By enrolling in a martial arts program that promotes anti-bullying education, your child will learn what they will need to know to best counter a bullying situation.
