Elizabeth Cummings, co-owner of ATA Martial Arts in Shawnee, Kansas, announces her 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 October, will include contributions from Cummings and ten other experts in various industries that address the growing problem of bullying.
“Bullying is a real issue that is out of hand,” says Cummings, a former school teacher. “Those being bullied don’t know where to turn for real help. Those not being bullied, don’t understand why it affects those that are. I hope this series of books can help a victim be able to reach out and get the help they need. My wish is that somehow my chapter can help someone with that need.”
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.”
Cummings’ involvement in the BULLYPROOF project will bring an effective, working solution to the families of Shawnee. Along with the release of the book, Cummings will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
