More than 50 children attended the two day workshop at Barham Primary School, in Danethorpe Road, Wembley, raising £121.86 in support of the Anti-Bullying Alliance 2014 national campaign which was entitled “let’s stop bullying for all”.

Master Keith Banfield, the Chief Instructor at the Wembley Choi Kwang Do School, said: “At Wembley Choi Kwang Do we aim to transform lives through mental and physical martial arts education, as this helps future generations to live happy, healthier, peaceful and more productive lives.”

He added: “The practical methods of self defence and advice we give fits perfectly in line with existing school practices and policies on Anti-Bullying.”

The children were taught non-physical methods of self defence as well as traditional martial art moves by instructors. They learnt how to “stop a fight before it begins”, and what action to take if they or a friend are being bullied or if they witness bullying.
