EPISODE 14 – MARTIAL ARTIST WITH A MISSION
Covering bullying in schools and the programs and strategies implemented through his work with AMAYDA, family man and martial artist Brett Welland joins us to share his enthusiasm about his work. He talks passionately about utilizing the disciplines of the martial arts to assist children to be emboldened, gain self-confidence, personal agency and give them strategies to manage the situation, the importance of early intervention and how cyber-bullying has changed the whole dynamics.
How can we be aware as parents, teachers and members of the community? What steps can we take to support this? There are resources available. As Brett states “the better the tools, the better the outcome”.
