For over 14 years Julio Anta has been changing children’s lives in Doral through his martial arts child development life skills programs. Anta is a retired law enforcement officer, honorably discharged U.S Marine Corps Sergeant, Hung Gar Kung Fu Master, certified instructor in the Israeli arts of Krav Maga and Haganah, Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do and Muay Thai Kickboxing. He teaches kids to defend themselves, get fit, and how to avoid being abducted. Yet, he is best know for his Anti-Bullying programs. Anta was mentored by award winning Anti-Bullying book author and creator of the Martial Arts for Peace Bully Busters program Dr. Terrance Webster Doyle. In 2002 he was the first and still only person fully certified in the Bully Busters program. Anta has been invited to do talks on bullying in public, private and charter schools. He been featured as a bullying expert on numerous local, national and international TV shows, newspapers and magazines.
Mr. Anta believes that a martial arts program alone or an anti-bullying program alone will not help a child be bully proof. He believes that the best combination to become bully proof is the combination of verbal self defense, reality based self defense, being fit and a confidence building program. Those were the elements he added to develop the “Art of Fighting without Fighting Anti-Bullying” program. The verbal portion of the program is based on Bruce Lee’s teachings and philosophy, his experience working in a maximum security prison,14 years of research and the Bully Busters program. Children will learn how to avoid the bully, defuse a confrontation and walk away with confidence and pride. The self defense portion he put together from his experience as a Krav Maga and Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do. Children will learn without punching or hurting the bully how to defend against the most common bullying attacks.
