Shaolin Kempo Arts presented a school-wide assembly at Ashley Falls Elementary School on the ABCs of anti-bullying entitled “Stop Bullying. Stand Up. Speak Out.” The presenter, Sensei Joey Larocque from Shaolin Kempo Arts, a professional martial arts educator and anti-bullying expert, covered a variety of topics. These included how to walk away from a bully, how to avoid being a bully, how to ask for help, and how to stand up for yourself with confidence. The anti-bullying assembly was also an opportunity to discuss how to solve problems and interact with others. Ashley Falls students were taught the ABCs: Action, Back up, and Confident. In other words, how to be a leader and show respect, ask for help from an adult, and stand up for yourself and others. For more information on Shaolin Kempo Arts, visit
