Welcome to the online home of Bunny's Children's MMA!
Take a tour around our Site and see for yourself why Bunny's Children's MMA is not only the premier youth Mixed-Martial Arts school in the state of Tennessee, but in the nation as well, and just why we put children's MMA on the map via national and international news media.
Backed by 40 years of experience and education in the martial arts, Bunny's Gym and Bunny's Children's MMA seek to instill in our youth the core elements needed to succeed in today's stressful world. It is our belief that it is both vital and a necessity to teach our children to defend themselves in this modern age--both physically and mentally.
Bullying has become so prevalent that In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Education released the first federal uniform definition of bullying for research and surveillance. There are many different modes and types of bullying. The current definition acknowledges two modes and four types by which youth can be bullied or can bully others. The two modes of bullying include direct (e.g., bullying that occurs in the presence of a targeted youth) and indirect (e.g., bullying not directly communicated to a targeted youth such as spreading rumors or cyber-bullying). In addition to these two modes, the four types of bullying include broad categories of physical, verbal, relational (e.g., efforts to harm the reputation or relationships of the targeted youth), and damage to property.*
Bullying can happen anywhere, at anytime. It can occur via electronic means such as computer or cell phone. Between 1 in 4 and 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullied at school, where most bullying occurs. The most common types are verbal and social bullying. Young people who are perceived as different from their peers are often at risk for being bullied. Bullying affects all youth, including those who are bullied, those who bully others, and those who see bullying going on. Some effects may last into adulthood. There is often a disconnect between young people’s experience of bullying and what the adults see. Also, adults often don’t know how to respond when they do recognize bullying.
Here at Bunny's Gym, it is our goal with our children's MMA class to empower our children to deal with any and all adversity they may have to face in life--be it physical, emotional or mental. There is much more to martial arts than simply having “fighting skills”. Martial arts are a way of life that teaches life skills. These skills help develop a positive attitude that builds confidence and self-esteem, two important things necessary to truly succeed in life. Here at Bunny's Gym we expound non-violence, and caution physical contact only as a last resort.
It is also our firm belief that by attending and participating in the various functions of our training facility, the students of our children's MMA program develop friendships and relations with fellow practitioners across the country and around the world. Developing such relationships are a vital component in our children's success in life, as each class member surrounds his or herself with a like-minded social network that they can learn from and pass their own knowledge on to as well.
