BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid, is the first volume in a new groundbreaking series designed to bring attention to the continuing problem of bullying, and the effectiveness of “Anti-Bully” programs currently in place.
“A lot of programs in schools today focus only on addressing the symptom of bullying, namely, what to do when you’re bullied,” says Alex Changho, co-editor of the book. “What’s missing are any tools or practices to address the cause of bullying, like low self-esteem. And on the other hand, helping individual kids become resilient from the effects of bullying – how to make them bully proof.”
This book brings together experts from around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and India. The contributing authors include business owners, martial arts professionals, medical doctors, and behavioral coaches.
Nottingham’s background being bullied as a child was one reason why he started martial arts, and later opened a martial arts academy. His passion for self-defense and empowerment also led to the creation of the Bullyproof Vest program, focusing on teaching courtesy and peace to children, versus reacting to fear and teaching children to report on one another in school.
He joins a panel of leaders, including: Troy Auman, Amit Bhargava, Alex Changho, Juan Colon, Michael Cuddyer, Oshen Duncan, Jo Fuller, Scott Hertzig, Richard Hill, Veenu Keller, Erin Lauraine, and Brett Lechtenberg.
Nottingham is available for book signings, as well as speaking engagements on the topic of bullying.
