This latest volume, which was released April 2016, includes contributions from Martin and other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Bullyproofing to me is so important because it helps ensure safety both physically and emotionally for the bully and the person being bullied,” says Martin. “While working with thousands of kids from ages 5 to 18, boys and girls, I feel I am very experienced in working with children and understanding where these potential problems stem from, and how to correct them.”
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.”
Martin’s involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Goldsboro. Along with the release of the book, Martin will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
His goal is to help 1,000 children in the Goldsboro area by the end of 2016, though his classes, workshops, community seminars, and trainings.
