For the month of July, I have the privilege of being a Co-Teaching Fellow to a group of sixteen rising high-school seniors from various parts of New York City. The American Studies Department at Columbia University coordinates a special summer seminar for students from under-resourced areas.
Training at the Bernales Institute builds confidence and character by teaching children self-control and the ability to stand up to negative peer pressure. The movements of the martial arts develop coordination and increase strength, flexibility, and balance.
The awarding of belts gives children a sense of achievement and accomplishment. We teach life lessons such as the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Students are expected to learn this and other lessons such as: Respect others Responsibility for your actions The primary value of martial arts is in teaching children how to defend themselves.
While self-defense is first and foremost, tournaments can be important for development in the arts and we provide opportunities for competition through local tournaments.
Students learn how to properly throw punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. In the higher-level classes, they learn how to deliver weapon-based attacks. This training teaches them the body mechanics to effectively defend against these moves if delivered by an attacker.
Students develop an innate understanding of how to effectively counter attacks in order to protect themselves and safely disable or disarm an opponent. The result of training at BIMA is a self-confident child who does not need to bully or show off to other children.
Millions of children miss school due to fear of bullies. We enable children to counter bullies by teaching them practical skills and principles such as: Protect - Use your self-defense techniques and do what you need to do to avoid getting hurt Finally, martial arts classes at BIMA are good, clean fun for children and a productive way to burn off extra energy.
