Most don't realize that besides the physical part there are so many mental aspects and life lessons that she has learned. The leadership abilities and confidence she has learned is something she could have never learned at this age. I am beyond thankful to Master Chris for everything we have and will continue to learn from the program! It's always hard finding the right place that your child fits in to.

We have had nothing but amazing experiences here, and my son 5 yrs loves it! We started in the fall, and he looks forward to every class. The staff is amazing, and knows how to work well with children which is hard to find sometimes. They learn a lot of life lessons, respect, discipline, as well as self defense. We are so glad we came here! The consequences of bullying can be devastating. Children who are bullied are more likely to experience a decrease in their academic performance, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems. How can kids avoid becoming the victim of a bully?

Here are some tips that can be highly effective to combat being the victim of the name calling, teasing, and harassment associated with this behavior. Typically, bullies tend to focus on those who appear to lack confidence and are unsure of themselves. When a child learns to stand up for themselves, it goes a long way in shutting down the chances of further victimization. Kids have the power to stop bullies, and martial arts can help them find that power.

We teach confidence, teamwork, respect, courtesy and pride in our students. These qualities go a long way to combat bullying. Tony Virovec reviewed Inspire Martial Arts — 5. Then this [bad] behaviour starts and continues and continues, usually until [the target] leaves the organisation.

The people I have spoken to often don't realise what's happening to them until a curtain length of time has elapsed. It can be three months, six months. In one case of a theatre worker in London, 18 months before [they] realised what was going on. Well, it does a couple of things.


Often the person is in denial about their behaviour and considers themselves just to be a strong manager or some other euphemism is used, or it's all [just] office politics. Sometimes they make a counter accusation of bullying as a kind of defence mechanism, they say this person has it "in for me" so this is why they are making this complaint. Bullies are actually very good at impressing people who are important in terms of power at an organisation. So a chief executive who bullies might have a board who thinks that he's the bee's knees but a staff team that knows very differently.

Sometimes there is a degree to which some bullying might be unwitting, the first time it happens. Maybe somebody didn't realise the effect their words or their actions were having on a colleague, but that's very rare.


In most cases, bullies actually set out on a campaign and a lot of psychologist have said that this is because they themselves are, in some way, inadequate. A bully is maybe not quite upto the job they have been appointed to or they have a level of social inadequacy, they don't get on well with people. When you look at the statistics across all employment sectors, targets of bullying are nearly always people who are good at their jobs, competent [and] popular. Article Were you surprised at the level of bullying that you found was happening in the arts? I was shocked because of the level.

Before I did my research, most of the other academic who were looking into different sectors were finding figures like one in three people were the targets of bullies. It wasn't that [bullying] existed because I think that we would all agree that there are bullies in all walks of life, there was one study that talked about bullying in the Church of England. It was the level of it that took me by surprise, that it was higher in the arts than in any other area that's previously been examined. I used a couple of statistical studies, so I actually used surveys, both online and on paper of BECTU members who were active in their trade union.

I then did a series of interviews with artistic directors, writers, dancers, actors, etc.

So I did both qualitative and quantitive analysis to get the whole picture as it were. Article You have been persistent in trying to get Arts Council England to take a position on this issue, why is that? When I was doing research for the book two years ago I spoke to the Arts Council staff at some length. But I did say to them that I'm a researcher and not a journalist and they were very forthcoming. The name of the staff member I spoke to most of the time was Jonathan Treadway, although he's no longer with the Arts Council. Jonathan and I has a number of email correspondences and we agreed what the Arts Council's position was and that's what I put into the book.

At that time Jonathan said the Arts Council would give consideration to making a statement about work place bullying in the arts which I was very pleased about.

So the book was published last year and a number of articles were written by different journals and [various] reports came out. Finally, when we got to the beginning of this year I thought maybe it was about time the Arts Council made their statement. I knew that Equity was very keen to make it clear that bullying could not be tolerated and had said so at their national conference.

A month later I sent another email to Alan Davey and this time I got a reply from someone in his organisation who said that he was unable to reply to me at this time. That person trotted out a few of the things about the Arts Council's policies, which I already knew, which was that they themselves have an internal policy, a dignity at work policy, but that it is not their business to interfere in the internal management practices of the organisations that they fund.

So this gave me another shock actually.

Bullying in the arts: let's raise the curtain on theatreland's thugs

It seems to me that the Arts Council had been able to take a lead on other issues, [like] the issue of unpaid internships, which is very topical at the moment. It seemed to me to be very odd that the Arts Council couldn't produce a very simple statement along the lines of "we have a dignity at work policy, we would like to proactively encourage all arts organisations to have a dignity at work policy, in fact we expect this from organisations that we fund".

When I recently put a question to Liz Forgan current Chair of ACE during her live, online chat, I and three others did the same thing, all of these questions were ignored. So if you don't have access to a list of the questions that were already asked, you would never know that that question was put forward.

  8. Franky I'm puzzled, I was very disappointed of course because this is a very important issue. I get stories all the time and calls for help from arts employees, not just in the UK, because this research has never been done anywhere else. People who want to know what they can do about this problem, who they can go to? For the Arts Council to say nothing, to refuse to even engage or use the word [bullying] made me think, I wonder what they are afraid of?

    The answer is, I don't know what they are afraid of.

    5. It did occur to me that if perhaps they made a statement about bullying they might then receive a lot of complaints from people, which they might not be equipped to deal with. I think saying what their position on this is could actually give a lot of encouragement to arts workers out there.


      Who, if they are being bullied often find they have no voice, especially if it's a manager doing the bullying. A board will often go into denial, especially if they appointed the manager in the first place, this is very common. Witnesses are [also] afraid to speak up. I had correspondence this morning from a museum worker whom I've talked to before and [this person] is completely isolated, because colleagues are afraid to back them up. The HR people, who should be backing them up, are simply defending the management position.

      This person is becoming more and more stressed, and is now starting to have physical symptoms and I'm sure this person will be in counselling before too long. It's a terrible thing that people [in that position] don't have any support or any backup. The key establishment body in the subsidised cultural sector is not speaking out. Well, there are a few things that people can do.

      If they're a union member then they should be able to get help from their trade union. Trade unions are getting better at dealing with this, it's not something they've always done, but it is something that they're beginning to offer training in it for their stewards. Some people try HR departments but in my experience I think it's very difficult to get effective help with a complaint.

      HR are in a peculiar position of having to uphold the management position.
