Brian Seetge, instructor and owner of Side Kicks Karate in Rome, New York, announces his involvement in the newest volume of the best-selling series BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid.
This latest volume, which is scheduled for release January 2016, will include contributions from Seetge and other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“When I was younger, I was picked on for a few things mostly because I had a disability,” says Seetge. “I used to go to a physical therapist in elementary school who would come and pull me out of class to work on balance and coordination exercises because I has cerebral palsy. That was a very humiliating and I felt alone inside because I was looked at as a ‘special kid.’ I was being picked on and bullied just because I was different from the other kids. Now I get to share how I overcame that and became confident.”
BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid, is a project started by Alex Changho, a martial arts professional and business coach.
“There are many programs out that are meant to help parents and kids deal with bullying,” says Changho. “But so many of them are designed to ‘keep the peace’ or ‘reduce conflict at schools’ instead of actually addressing the real problem. The problem is not bullying in itself. The problem is the negative effects that bullying has on kids. The solution is to bullyproof the individual, by empowering more people, and helping them feel great about themselves. When inevitably the bullying happens, it will be ineffective.”
Seetge’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Rome. Along with the release of the book, Seetge will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
