Speaking Tours

The primary purpose of our speaking tours is for the C. E. O. & Founder of Your Life Matters Empowerment Alliance, Colleen Burns, to share her story of her bullying experiences and how martial arts has helped improve and evolve her from those experiences.

The functional benefit of this is to empower and inspire other bullied victims to do the same. The result will create one-on-one interactions not only with those who do, but also with those who feel they don’t have the will-power or strength to do so. The ultimate goal is to empower and strengthen victims’ mindset and self to feel better about themselves and to become an improved and stronger individual on a daily basis.

Workshops and Seminars

Workshops and Seminars will be conducted by the Chair and Committee Director of Training Seminars, Stephen Niamke and his assistants. The primary purpose of our workshops and seminars is to educate and develop programs for bullying awareness and prevention. The functional benefit and goal of this is to educate not only the students, but also the teachers, school administration, employees, and employers how to handle bullying before it starts, when it starts, and to prevent it from occurring further.
