In addition to our general Youth Jiu Jitsu program, Real World Martial Arts is proud to introduce the Best Bully Buster Program. This is the first anti-bullying program of its kind in Northern New Jersey, geared to empowering your child to gain control of bullying situations by defusing and non-violently neutralizing verbal and physical confrontations.
Compared to the days when most of us adults grew up the common phrase in school was something like “the Three ‘R’s“… the common phrase today is school bullying.
Sadly, today’s children live in a much different world than most of us grew up in, and a world that would seem foreign to us. School bullying is a topic that we hear about each night on the news and in nearly every article we read.
Bullying results in long term effects like
- Poor Grades
- Increase in aggression
- Communication issues
- Symptoms similar to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Numerous emotional issues
In a study of 210 college students, UF researchers discovered a link between what psychologists call relational victimization in adolescence and depression and anxiety in early adulthood, according to findings published online this month in the journal Psychology in the Schools.

Here What one of our Parents Say about our Program
“My son recently turned 9 years old and began practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at RWMMA 8 months ago. The impact it is having on his life is dramatic. Everyone in our lives, from family to friends to teachers has noted his markedly improved self confidence, positive attitude and ability to self-regulate in stressful situations – something which has been a major challenge for him historically and which was derailing him in various ways in his life. In the spring, I attended a Free Buster Seminars at Real World MMA. My son was immediately taken by the knowledge teacher Alex K. had to share and way in which he made the process of learning Jiu Jitsu fun, manageable for him and inspiring. Flash forward to now and my son is a die hard Jiu Jitsu practioner. He literally can’t wait to train 3 days a week and is going to begin competing next month. I am blown away by both the technical skill he is learning so rapidly and the character development that is going hand in hand with it. His coach, Alex is not only a talented professional mixed martial artist – he is a gifted teacher and mentor to my son. The remarkable developments I am seeing in my boy are directly due to the dedication and talent of his coach and the overall positive, empowering environment at Real World MMA. You can see my son in action in the video below – taken only 4 months into his training! I am so grateful to have found this program and Real World MMA. It is truly a blessing that I know will serve him strongly throughout his lifetime.”

Every day in the United States, an estimated 150,000 kids miss school due to fear of or intimidation by bullies. In fact, some experts assert that the fear of bullying is a leading cause of low self-esteem in children. Worse, statistics suggest that less than 15% of kids actually report acts of bullying in schools.
Children’s inability to stand up to a bully is rooted in profound fear for their personal safety. The victim knows that they must confront the bully and would like nothing more than to stand up to them. They simply don’t follow through for fear of the physical threat that backs the bully’s every action and for fear of the repercussions they will feel at home or in school. How do you instill the confidence in a bullying victim to face the tormentor, look them in the eye, and gain control of the bullying situation in a way that will meet the approval of their parents and teachers? The answer is simple – teach the victims to gain control of the the confrontation by non-violently neutralizing the physical or emotional attack.
Most martial arts programs rely on striking the aggressor with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. In the Real World Bully Busters program, we take a different approach. All the techniques are purely defensive and utilize no strikes. Furthermore, we teach children how defuse confrontations with words and never to initiate physical aggression. If attacked, we offer techniques to non-violently neutralize the threat and gain control until help arrives. Not only will we teach your child the physical skill to defend themselves against both physical and verbal harassment through discussion and role-playing we will also teach them how to try and diffuse the conflict before it becomes physical. We also realize that bullying has taken new formats, such as cyber bullying. The program will also help your child effectively deal with that increasingly common form of harassment.
The Real World Bully Busters program has three primary objectives:
Instill Confidence: “Bullies are less likely to target self-confident children”. We instill confidence by teaching techniques that enable your child to stand tall, look the bully in the eye and thus be less of a potential target.
Increase Awareness: Harassment from bullies can be physical or verbal and delivered at various intensity levels. In each lesson, we focus on teaching your child to recognize and respond to the most common physical and verbal bully behaviors.
Ensure Readiness: Only when your child makes it clear that he/she will not tolerate the harassment, will they free themselves of the bully’s torment. We will prepare them for every common contingency.
