    ASKA Youth Use Karate to Get Past Bullying

    Michael Jay Jackson's ASKA (American Shotokan Karate Academy) members take to the stage of 'Team Ice DJs' Youth Summit Anti-Bullying Rally'; Karate members are on a mission to tell their story across the globe to other bullying victims.
    Once bullied themselves, they have learned techniques in a structured and supportive environment to not fall victim to incidents of the past; standing together as a team, with hopes of inspiring youth everywhere to not only stand up for themselves, but to stand up for others when they see incidents of bullying occurring.
    Jackson is the Chief Instructor and Owner of ASKA. The Karate Academy is located in Killeen, Texas.
    I encourage you to contact him to share his presentation on a stage in your area and see how their message inspires not only the youth in the audience, but adults as well.
