It includes an in-depth manual that covers everything taught in the program including: how not to be a bully, what bullying really entails, the warning signs of both a bully and someone being bullied, the risk factors, how not to be a target of a bully, common myths about bullying, statistics, the three T-Steps to verbal harassment, the rules of engagement in dealing with bullies and what you can do as citizens to “Stomp the Bullying.” Aside from that, self-defense movements, strategies and tactics are also taught in the program, as well as awareness skills, verbal Judo, and physical restraint moves to control and negotiate.

The “Stomp the Bullying” program is offered through the Guardian Angels through certified “Stomp the Bullying” martial arts schools. The program has been endorsed by actors Martin Kove (Sensei John Kreese in the Karate Kid Series) and Sean Kanan (Karate’s Bad Boy Mike Barnes in Karate Kid III), as well as actor and martial arts icon Don “The Dragon” Wilson and Alcee Hastings of the House of Representatives.
