If you are the victim of Bullying tell someone.
If you are a student of The Mt Pearl School of Martial Arts tell US.
We have a complex Bully Proofing System 15 years in the making.
No one has been teaching Bully Proofing like we have.
The MPSMA bully proofing program has been professionally modeled for OUR program and used by the Community Based Policing Programs. We provide the very best in protection for our kids. In order to help us help you and your children we ask that you provide a password system that only you and your child know. This password is to be used if and only if someone has your permission to pick up and communicate with your child in a case of emergency. NO PASSWORD NO GO!!

Junior Black Belt Program
Some parents have asked if we offer any accelerated junior black belt paths or guarantees of a black belt. We do not. And this is our rationale:
Our program is tailored to today’s needs from an ancient martial art that teaches training as a way of life: body, soul, mind and heart. Like the kenpo symbol of a an open hand of friendship over the closed fist of self-defence, we offer an opportunity to learn an ancient tradition in a friendly and modern way.
Children and young people are a core group in our program as youth and adults of all ages can benefit greatly from the discipline and fitness instilled by practicing a martial art. At MPSMA, children are accepted as youth, meaning we do not expect them to be as physically or mentally prepared as a mature, developed adult. Kids need to be kids and they will develop as adults in due course without being rushed along the path.
We have chosen to offer a modern martial arts program adapted to confer knowledge and understanding of karate, grappling, jujitsu, kickboxing and self defense. The goal is to teach adults and children how to defend themselves appropriately in any situation.
Our program sees each student as a member of an extended family. Different ages and capabilities advance at different rates depending on ability and efforts. We expect students to work hard for their belts so that they appreciate the reward that comes from the hard work, dedication, commitment and fitness it takes to achieve each level. The criteria is stringent for a reason. It would offer a false sense of security to award anyone, especially a young person, a senior belt such as brown or black if they cannot defend themselves in a manner appropriate to the situation. As such, there is no junior black belt or child’s black belt. There is only a black belt and that is awarded at the adult level. To offer anything else would be contrary to the tradition of kenpo as a martial art.
