My daughter just loves going to Millcreek Karate. She four and Mr. Wokutch is so patient with her learning the basics of taekwondo. This is a fantastic program and she is always looking forward to class. The facility is clean and modern. We love Millcreek Karate so much!

My four year old son loves going to karate with his friends, the facility is clean, modern and the best part is the instruction he receives. Patient, kind and understanding are how I would describe the instructors-great experience!

KC McCloskey

The facility is newly remodeled, clean, and family friendly. The staff is kind and courteous, and the instructors are highly experienced and knowledgeable.

Brittany Belcher

Millcreek Karate is by far the most professional, clean and welcoming academy in all of Erie. Besides being the best all around, they even offer the best deals when they could easily charge more if they wanted to and it’d still be well worth it! We have a long commute from the other side of Erie but the skills, knowledge and friendships he gains keep us coming back! We are extremely picky on where we send our children. We researched and visited several other martial art schools in Erie county before Millcreek Karate opened last summer and we were not impressed with others.. We love sending our son to Millcreek Karate!

This martial arts studio is modern, spacious and very clean. There is plenty of parking available. The instructors are top notch - very patient, kind, accommodating, courteous, knowledgeable and proficient. The instructors are also very innovative in their approach and have amazed me with their ability to adjust the lesson plans to each child's individual needs and capabilities while still enabling them to learn the martial arts curriculum and excel. My 2 children have felt very welcomed at this studio from day one and they love it here. They have excelled significantly and quickly and I could not ask for a better martial arts school!

My son just turned 3 and struggles with anxiety. We thought we would try karate to build his confidence. Today he had a private lesson and they were so wonderful with him. My son can’t wait to go back and instantly LOVED it! I am amazed. He was glowing with confidence after 1 lesson.

We were told our son has adhd in January. My husband took karate so we started looking around. We didn't make it anywhere else. My husband walked in to get some info and was very impressed about pretty much everything. From the class times to how they work with kids with adhd. I was nervous for my son thinking I was going to be told "we can't have him". They have worked with him and I saw a change in him within a week. A WEEK! We absolutely love Millcreek Karate! My son is a happy kid again!

How to Avoid Being a Victim of Bullying

Bullying has become an epidemic in recent years. Yes, there have always been bullies, and yes, those bullies have always caused serious and lasting damage to their victims; however, bullying in the 21st century has changed – and not for the better.

According to Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center, one in four students has reported that they were bullied during the school year and 14.8% of high school students in the United States have reported that they were bullied online.

The consequences of bullying can be devastating. Victims are more likely to experience a decrease in their academic performance, anxiety, depression, and behavioral problems.

Being that bullying is such a rampant problem in the United States, children need to be presented with methods that will teach them how to combat being the victim of the name calling, teasing, and harassment that are associated with bullying behavior.

How can kids avoid becoming the victim of a bully? Here are some tips that can be highly effective.

Be Confident

Typically, bullies tend to prey on those who appear to lack confidence and who are unsure of themselves. If a bully sees that someone is lacking confidence, he or she is more likely to target that individual and harass that person.

Being confident is one of the most effective ways to avoid being bullied.

Kids need to have inner confidence, and they need to be able to project that confidence outward. Parents can help build their children’s confidence by building them up and supporting them. When children know that they are valued, they automatically have confidence. Kids can exude their inner confidence by standing tall, making eye contact, being friendly and taking pride in their appearance.

Gain the Support of Friends

One or two great friends is worth more than 100 fair-weather friends. This is especially true if someone wants to avoid being bullied.

Kids should pick their friends wisely, and should gather their support. Remaining in contact with those friends – walking down the school halls with them, sitting with them on the bus, or eating with them in the cafeteria – will prevent a bully from targeting a child. Typically, bullies tend to take aim at children who are ‘loners.’ Support from friends is a highly powerful force against bullies.

Stand Up for Yourself

If a bully does start to attack, a child should not only know that it is OK to stand up for him- or herself, but that standing up must be done.

If a child encounters someone who is saying or doing hurtful things, that child should exert his or her inner confidence, stand tall, look the bully in the eye and tell him or her to stop it. Once the child tells the bully to stop, he or she should walk away and move on. Letting the bully see that he or she has impacted the victim will only make him or her feel successful, which will make him or her want to try again.

Kids have the power to stop bullies, and martial arts help them find that power. By following these tips, children can avoid being the victim of

such cruel behavior and avoid the lasting consequences of bullying.
