Meet the instructor, mr. sean
Presentation presented by Bully Advocate and Speaker, Sean Gilham. Sean is a Martial Arts instructor and certified in Squabbles Social and Emotional Learning program who has visited many schools, spoken to thousands of kids on the subject of bullying and self-worth.
Mr. Sean started training martial arts at the age of 4 and has been teaching since the age of 15. During teaching, he has seen that kids learning self-defense confidence gained a higher level of respect for themselves and others, excelled in school, and became physically strong. But there was another side that was needed; how to deal with social conflict while avoiding physical confrontation.
Mr. Sean began learning how to teach kids how to become resilient and emotionally strong. In his speeches, he tells his personal stories of overcoming bullies and difficult people using life skills such as the Golden Rule. He has been featured on CBS 42 and ABC 33/40.
What To Wear Wear comfortable clothes you can easily move around in and jump in. Participants will be barefoot or in socks on the training floor. Bring a bottle of water if need during the physical activities.
We will take a short 5 minute break halfway through the workshop for rest and snack break. Snacks such as water and cheese crackers will be provided.
