Bullies often target other kids because they have a low self-esteem.
Bullying is not only physical, it can be mental, emotional, and believe it or not digital. Amerikick prepares kids by developing CONFIDENCE and providing KNOWLEDGE to help them handle these awful situations. We let our students, your kids, know that they are awesome in their own right and nothing a bully says or does takes that away. Through repetition, guided practice, and a culture that breeds CONFIDENCE and LEADERSHIP, our students learn how to avoid certain situations, and if necessary defend themselves in a BIG WAY! Bullying doesn't have to be a part of growing up. There are so many more important things for kids to focus on; family, learning, growing, and yes EARNING THEIR BLACK BELT. As parents you love your children, let's take the initiative and work to put BULLIES IN THEIR PLACE! We are excited to serve, and pleased to be able to provide a safe place for kids to become THE BEST VERSION OF THEMSELVES!

Our program also includes a list of, “Tips to remember when out”.
Amerikick Andorra's Women's Self Defense Program covers critical thinking about self-defense strategies, assertiveness, powerful communication skills, and easy-to-remember physical techniques. Our trained instructors respect and respond to your fears and concerns. Instruction is based on a belief that women can act competently, decisively, and take action for their own protection. We offers tools for enabling a woman to connect with her own strength and power. Taking a self-defense class is one of the most positive acts a woman can do for herself!
Amerikick Andorra Women's Self Defense Cirriculum follows the National Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCASA) Guidelines on Choosing a Women's Self-Defense Course which include:
Women do not ask for, cause, invite, or deserve to be assaulted. Women and men sometimes exercise poor judgement about safety behavior, but that does not make them responsible for the attack. Attackers are responsible for their attacks and their use of violence to overpower, control, and abuse another human being.
Whatever a woman's decision in a given self-defense situation, whatever action she does or does not take, she is not at fault. A woman's decision to survive the best way she can must be respected. Self-defense classes should not be used as judgement against a victim/survivor.
Good self-defense programs do not "tell" an individual what she "should" or "should not" do. A program should offer options, techniques, and a way of analyzing situations. A program may point out what USUALLY works best in MOST situations, but each situation is unique and the final decision rests with the person actually confronted by the situation.
