The Verbal Martial Arts Course has been a BIG help to me in building my school contacts. I had none, zero, zilch before this program. I have given a couple of school presentations this year (just got started at the end of the school year), but I have been promised more for next year.
I have also been interviewed by the local paper and the article should be coming out this month. Just to put this in perspective- this is the FIRST time in 16 years that the media has shown any interest in us.
I absolutely love the Verbal Judo Program. I have been teaching martial arts for 37 years and I am more passionate about what I need to do as an instructor now than anytime in my career. This is the best bully proofing system I have ever seen.
I want to thank you, Mr. Thompson and Mr. Klugiewicz for all you guys are doing to help
the children as well as adults.
I have had a lot of success with Verbal Judo — and many schools are bringing me in.
Awesome, awesome program!
Hi, my name is Sensei Chris Feldt and I am the owner and chief instructor of Samurai Karate Studio, located in Columbia, SC.
I was first introduced to Verbal Judo by Chan Lee after he took the week long training program. I was very impressed with the program’s emphasis on providing kids with a non violent way to help deal with bullies.
This is important, because the local schools in my district have a zero tolerance for fighting. Unfortunately, most parents don’t know how to help their child, so they just tell them to fight back. This often leads to suspension for both the bully and the victim.
I had been trying for a year, unsuccessfully, to get in to my local schools. As soon as I starting mentioning Verbal Judo as part of my anti-bully presentation, all of a sudden doors opened for me.
I have been invited to present my anti-bully workshops to several of the local schools, and I am now teaching an after school karate program in three of the schools in my district and I hope to add two more for the next school year.
I really believe that Verbal Judo has helped me establish more credibility in the community and let’s people know that I am serious about teaching children how to deal with bullies effectively, without breaking any rules at school.
Lastly, I also incorporated Verbal Judo into my school’s karate curriculum. Dr. Thompson has had huge success training the police and working with adults, using Verbal Judo tactics, so I wanted to make it available to to all my students using most of the materials provided by this program.
The feedback from my students and their parents has been very positive and I believe it will positively impact my student retention.
Thank you Mr.Lee and Dr.Thompson for developing such a unique and much needed program.
The verbal judo program is a fantastic addition to anyone who is serious about delivering real bullying solutions. Verbal judo gets to the heart of the matter with quantifiable results.
The car chats make total sense for busy parents driving kids here and there. What a master stroke!
Well done master Chan Lee, I look forward to future involvement with you and your team.
I’ve never worked with a man (or an organization) with higher integrity than Chan Lee and the Verbal Judo Institute. Thank you guys for producing such high quality training for my martial arts school.
“It is nice to be able to tell students something other than ignore bullies.”
“My students enjoy the process of learning Verbal Judo — that’s one of the best parts of the program.”
The Verbal Judo program has been a great addition to my martial arts program! It provides a comprehensive strategy to deflect verbal violence before it becomes physical violence.
The students struggled with the program in the beginning just as they did with my physical program. After a couple of months, they began to understand and use the verbal techniques to deescalate aggressive energy.
I would highly recommend this program!
The verbal judo program is great… not only is it making a difference with my students…. it has helped me deal with a situation recently with a fellow instructor.
I was able to maintain my cool and set a positive example and some of my students were able to see what I did and were very appreciative of how professional I was at the time. They were in shock about how poorly the other instructor dealt with the situation.
I am a martial arts school owner and full time police officer. I first learned verbal judo in the police academy about 16 years ago and it has helped me tremendously on the job.
When I heard of Master Chan Lee’s program of verbal judo for martial artists, I was very interested and purchased the program. I have started using it for my martial arts leadership team and it has been great! The parents also like the fact that these very essential communication skills are being taught to their children.
This program is a great asset to the martial arts community and I can attest to the value and usefulness of this program not just in law enforcement and martial arts, but in all of life! Thank you Master Chan and Professor Thompson!
Verbal Judo is one of the most phenomenal tools for Character Development and Self Defense I have ever found.
The parents love it.
More importantly, the kids are using it to defend themselves from bullying. We are having a lot of fun working on Verbal Judo during class. Parents really appreciate the “Car Talks”. Car Talks give them the script they need to talk with their kids. This Verbal Judo
curriculum is helping me to achieve my goal of changing my world and making it a better place. Thank you for creating this product.
I purchased the verbal judo program because I wanted a proven, systematic approach to handling bullies. After seeing the first lessons, it is exactly what I have been looking for. You see how it is implemented in the classroom situation and you also receive power point handouts to properly present it.
This program will add more value to the life skills and character development that we already offer. It will keep our school at the forefront for child development. Thank you Master Lee and Verbal Judo.
Doc Rhino’s Verbal Judo should be a part of everyone’s arsenal who deals with the public. For years I have taught my students to “use your brain, not your muscle,” and now, with Verbal Judo, I’m teaching my students to not only think, but to master the art of communication.
By becoming a “Communication Samurai” you will learn how to safely de-escalate potentially violent situations and encounters. This is an awesome program and I highly recommend it. It is truly the “Way of the Peaceful Warrior.”
When I first heard about the Verbal Judo Program I immediately got involved. I had heard of Verbal Judo many times and the fact that Master Lee had adapted it to the martial arts was very exciting. It is complete, easy to implement, and the perfect tool to teach your student the tools to try to de-escalate a potential problem before it turns physical. With bullying running rampant in today’s schools (and everyday life), the Verbal Judo skills are perfect to give your students additional tools to work with. Not to mention it also gives you the credentials to open many doors in your community. If you have not signed up for the course for Verbal Judo, don’t wait another minute.
“Verbal Judo has opened up a world of opportunities. When I tell my parents that the program has been used by over 700,000 law enforcement officers, it is hugely credible. There is absolutely no pain in learning how to teach this program.”
Verbal Judo? It’s a no-brainer. OF COURSE we need this program.
The only thing I’m disturbed about is why it’s taken us so long to find and implement it! Let’s arm every child with Verbal Judo, to discourage bullying and to teach young people how to effectively and non-violently deal with conflict.
Let’s arm young women with Verbal Judo self-defense skills. Let’s make sure our teenage boys use Verbal Judo, rather than their fists, to solve their problems. And while we’re at it, let’s make sure married couples get some Verbal Judo too (may I have two orders, please?), as the work is just as useful in the kitchen as on the street.
I like Verbal judo. It’s a smart thing to learn and implement in your life, in your school, and in your community.
Verbal Judo? Say “YES.”
“Bullying is very serious issue. The great thing about Verbal Judo is that it teaches your students directly about how to handle bullying situations so they don’t become a victim.”
After recieving my first Verbal Judo video and “Car Talk” sheet I realized that this program was the missing link in our self defense program.
Giving us the ability to teach and role play with our students the skills needed to recognize and respond to Bullying from every angle, and long before the bully could get a foot-hold on our kids confidence and destroy it. Verbal Judo is the part of self defense we were not taught, and needed the most.
“Verbal Judo has helped my school tremendously. Thank you Verbal Judo!”
The lessons in Verbal Judo are excellent. Having both Chan and Gary speak is very useful, with their different perspectives on the same material. The car chat handouts and Power Point presentations are perfect additions.
We appreciate having access to all of the lessons. Being able to easily review past lessons is definitely helpful.
Thank you for making this program available to us!
