Bruce McCorry’s Academy: A Legacy of 40 Years
Born as the brainchild of Master Bruce McCorry in 1978, Bruce McCorry’s Academy of Martial Arts (Peabody, MA) was established with the aim of imparting the values and wisdom he gained through years of engagement with martial arts to young and adult learners of the time. One of the founding aims of the academy was to bring the highly effective formulae of martial arts out of the bastions of adept learners and help it reach the everyday learner who might find their life altered by it. Thus the school was started by a few committed, highly experienced instructors under the visionary leadership of Master McCorry, with a few programs in those martial arts which looked promising and beneficial at that point of time.

The martial art boom in the 1990s and the 2000s witnessed martial art schools mushrooming all over the US. Since then, martial arts has remained a highly fluctuating field where new actors try their luck every year, and only very few players—both old and new—manage to survive successfully. Through these years, Bruce McCorry’s Academy stayed committed to the vision with which it was started. It developed a unique method by which the curriculum of each program was developed through a careful blend of traditional martial art wisdom and exciting new research that was changing the face of every martial art as we knew it. The academy also thoroughly updated its programs, beginning new courses in new arts that seemed beneficial for the learners, elevating some programs to separate wings, and coupling other programs with mind healing, energy healing and consultancy programs which seemed the need of the hour.

The Present: Bruce McCorry’s as the Best Choice
Unsurprisingly, Bruce McCorry’s Academy has not only managed to survive through these highly volatile four decades, but it has also risen to the position of one of the premier martial art schools where aspiring learners—both kids and adults—flock every year. Today, the academy has more than ten programs ranging from Kung Fu and Tai Chi to Cardio Kickboxing and Taekwondo. The academy also has special afterschool and summer programs for children, programs which are open for seniors, and programs for people with special needs. All the current courses at the academy has a carefully thought out syllabus prepared through the collaboration of experienced instructors at the academy. The team is led by the internationally acclaimed founding father Master McCorry himself, with an equally committed and capable leading staff who champion each program with zest and passion.

Easily, Bruce McCorry’s has etched itself on to the memories of at least three generations of learners in the area, who explored the miracles that martial art can do to their bodies, minds and emotions with the guiding touch of the academy. They still return when they can, and send their children and grandchildren to the academy so that they too can experience the magic. If you would like your personal quest—whether it be health, fitness, lack of confidence, stress or academic/work performance—to be helped out by martial art, never hesitate to come to the best place out there: Bruce McCorry’s Martial Arts, one of those rare institutions than can boast of having a history of more than forty years in the field.

These days, nothing moves faster than time. It is already spring, and before you know it, summer will be upon us. If you are not already a fitness freak, summer is probably not the happiest time of the year for you. With a bit of caution this year, with a bit of early thinking and effort, you can transform this summer to the most memorable one in your life: the one in which you finally managed to crack the fitness formula. And the root to that formula is cardio kickboxing.

Cardio Kickboxing: The Martial Art that Can Make Your Body Listen
If you are one of those who have tried out fitness strategies like workouts, diets and the many different combos that come in all fancy names, you would already know that it is not that easy to make your body listen to your will. This is why you need a strategy with a difference this year.

Cardio Kickboxing is a unique mélange of the essence of martial arts and workout rolled into one: some of its heritage goes back to the Muay Thai tradition of ancient Thailand, and the rest of it was revised through 20th century by Japanese martial artists who fused it with Karate. The modern form of Cardio Kickboxing came into vogue in 1992 in the US, where the element that boosts cardiac health was finally added, making it a perfect health and fitness regime.

Cardio Kickboxing is one of those rare fitness strategies that can radically alter all aspects of your body. Depending on your weight (ranging from 125 to 155 lbs), a person can burn between 600 and 888 calories in an hour of kickboxing. Although it has an effortless way of moves, it is in fact a high-intensity workout with high impact rates, which can considerably tone your muscles and sculpt your body in the way you will. The way it boosts cardiac health, strength, endurance and energy is only an added benefit, but much valued. It is also good for your mind and your spirit, as it takes away the stress, makes you comfortable in your own skin, and helps you to be confident in all walks of your life.

Learning Kickboxing with the Best Trainers: Come to Bruce McCorry’s!
Bruce McCorry’s Academy of Martial Arts (Peabody, MA) is one of the longstanding institutions for martial arts in the state with more than 40 years to its history. It is also one of the earliest institutions to have recognized the potential of cardio kickboxing as an art and a fitness regime. What started as regular kickboxing lessons in the academy is therefore a whole new wing altogether these days, called Kickboxing Peabody. At Bruce McCorry’s Academy, you will get to learn the exquisite strength of cardio kickboxing from those who started learning it in the late 1990s itself and who are experienced in every nuance of the art.

The Tai Chi program at Bruce McCorry’s academy is the brainchild of a group of expert instructors with years of experience in the art. Following are some of the aspects within traditional and modern knowledge regarding Tai Chi that the program has imbibed into its syllabus and structuring:

Bullying at All-Time High: Let’s Prevent it Once and For All


Bullying at All-Time High: Let’s Prevent it Once and For All

For a few decades now, there has never been a year when instances of bullying has not been reported from American schools. However, things are worse than ever before according to the Stomp Bullying initiative, which reported that with 1 out of every 4 child in USA being bullied, bullying is at an all-time high in American history. According to these stats, about 43% of children have experienced cyberbullying, and 5.4 million children bunk school fearing harassment and bullying every day. The statistics call for the fact that it is finally the time to prevent it once and for all, and it is high time that everyone including parents, teachers and other concerned adults acted in order to stop bullying.

Why Be Concerned: The Menace that is Bullying
Are tiffs between children quite a common part of the school life that shouldn’t really be blown out of proportion? Often we find that question being asked when bullying is discussed. Especially when the perpetrators’ family and friends try to defend them, it is an oft-heard argument that what happened was a minor tiff, and not bullying. Such questions come out of one’s ignorance of bullying and the damage it can ensue. It is quite easy for a common tiff between kids to escalate into bullying given that the power relations might be unequal in most interactions. Such defenses will not be heard once we realize that bullying is as much damaging to the bully as it is to the victim.

It is noted by child experts that most children who become part of bullying, whether as victims, perpetrators or onlookers are bound to go through lasting psychological damage that may leave them unable to function properly in adult social interactions and in building relationships. Bullying can lead to serious repercussions like anxiety disorders, stress, trauma, and depression for anyone involved. Those who become part of bullying as victims and bullies are likely to take to dysfunctional behavior, substance abuse and violence in later life. It can even lead to suicide and mental derangement if not prevented. To add to everything, the bully too is a victim here in the sense that he/she must be a victim of insecurities, psychological issues and vulnerabilities to be a bully in the first place. Hence the bully too deserves help as the victim does.

Martial Arts as a Solution: Saying No to Bullying for Ever
If there is a lasting solution that can help both the victims and perpetrators of bullying alike, it is martial arts. In professional martial art schools like Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA) which offer special programs for child learners, often bullying comes into focus. Under trained instructors, martial arts can be effectively used to help the victim get over the trauma and stress caused by past bullying, thus preventing lasting damage. Martial arts can also help bullies to reroute their penchant for aggression and violence into positive routes. As martial arts help children in general to build confidence, stay out of harmful behavior, gain emotional strength, courage and learn self-defense, it is the once-and-for-all solution to bullying. 

If you are eager for your child to have a safe, happy and bullying-free childhood, introduce them to martial arts today.

We are in a technocentric world like never before. Technology has seeped into every aspect of our lives, and the lives of teenagers are no exception. That every teenager spends 9 hours a day in front of gadgets, and that they live in a highly competitive, socialized and networked world means that the problems with which the teens struggle these days are radically different from what characterized teenage twenty years back. Here are some of those most pressing concerns, and what can be done to save our youngsters from falling prey to them:

 Depression: Depression has become one of the most common teenage perils, which affects at least 20% of the population before they reach adulthood, pushing them into self-harming behavior and lack of motivation.

Risky Sexual Behavior: Given that more than half of the victims of sexually transmitted diseases where young adults, risky sex makes another serious issue with which teens struggle these days. It also often pushes teens into unintended pregnancy and render them unable to indulge in a healthy relationship in future.

Substance Abuse: With 33.2 per cent of high school seniors indulging in alcohol use, the lines between use and abuse is quite blurry when it comes to teenage alcoholism. The same can be claimed for drug abuse as well. With the high risk of developing addiction at any moment, drug abuse is a crucial issue that teens of today have to navigate.

 Bullying and Peer Pressure: According to latest statistics, bullying has touched an all-time high in American schools, and peer pressure is no less a danger. Both bullying and peer pressure are the trigger to much dreaded and lasting consequences, thus being a difficult concern for many teens out there.

Study Stress: It is alarming to note that a large number of school dropouts today are not socially marginalized or academically incapable, but also kids unable to keep up with the mounting academic pressure put on them by the system. Hence study stress is another grave struggle for todays’ teens.

Technological Perils: The dangers brought about by social media include exposure to unhealthy content, getting into risks that can be financial or sexual, exposure to cruelty and violence, inappropriate acquaintances and so on. Hence the dangers of using technology is something that teens often face.


Martial Art as a Solution to the Problems Faced by Teens
It might be audacious to state that there is actually one solution to these diverse concerns, but it is not an exaggeration. Introducing your child to martial arts can be a one-time solution for these diverse issues that mark their teenage. In a good martial art school like Bruce McCorry’s Academy (Peabody, MA), professional martial art is used to instill confidence, self-worth and self-esteem in teens, helping them to stay away from peer pressure and risky behavior. The mental benefits of martial arts can resolve the insecurities that push teens into substance abuse and depression. Martial arts can also improve faculties which are crucial to academic performance such as memory. 

Through martial arts, children can learn how to defend themselves, learn to be aware of the perils that surround them, and grow up as emotionally strong individuals who can deal with challenges that life throws at them.
