5 Elements Martial Arts - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Self Defence Anti Bullying


My name is Maeghen Cotterill, and I own 5 elements Martial Arts in Calgary.  It is our passion to help build confidence to children, teens and adults through martial arts and practical self-defence skills.  No matter what age you are, you need to understand how to protect yourself from dangerous offenders, bullies, and scary situations.  If you have a child or know of a child that is getting bullied or has low self esteem PLEASE register him or her to this event.

Saturday 14th January 9am-10am (12+) – Self Defence for Teens and Adults

Saturday 14th January 12pm-1pm (11 and under) – Anti-bullying for Kids


Only 25 spots available in this interactive training session.

Self defence skills for everyone! Build the confidence and situational awareness skills to protect yourself against dangerous offenders and bullies.

Bullying and scary situations are out of control.  Stories in the press show what happens when you aren’t prepared for a situation that turns against you (and if it ever happens, it happens FAST).

Learn how to be more aware of your environment, how to notice potentially dangerous scenarios, how to position yourself for a quick retreat, and what to do it you ARE approached by someone with less-than-positive intentions.

Effective in the school yard, in the streets, while out at night, or while just wandering around minding your own business.



Bullying is something that is out of control in and around Calgary.  Every day of the week, I hea another story about a child being bullied on the bus, at the bust stop, in class, at recess, online, and now through text or social media.  In some of these cases, the bullying is by adults in a position of power.


The Anti-bullying seminar we are holding will help those under 13 years of age understand what they need to do when someone threatens them verbally or physically.

I’ve been working with children on the effects of bullying for over 20 years. It’s part of my life mission to help educate parents a children on how to protect themselves.

Learn more about situational awareness, diffusing a dangerous situation, and what to do if the bully does move forward with the intent to harm.

This is a lifelong skill that can be built, and developed for increased confidence.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

You can CALL US at 403-201-8825 – email us at or register online through this link (choose one or more classes for you and/or your child).

A small investment that could provide immense benefit if a dangerous situation ever happened!

Hope to see you there!
