My son struggled with the same issues. Two things helped: social skills groups at Kaiser and twice a week kickboxing classes at Pacific Ring Sports on 40th/Telegraph. The classes there are fun, they do not tolerate bullying and they build self esteem and self confidence. Good luck!

I need a fun, well-taught Muay Thai Kick-boxing class for my five year old son. Any recommendations or alternate suggestions? Thanks!
Pacific Ring Sports http://www.pacificringsports has classes for kids every Sat from 11am-12 noon, and although kids currently are about the 7-10 year range, they do not turn away any child if he/she expresses interest and can be attentive. You might want to just do a drop-in and see how s/he likes it. Good luck. Muay Thai fan
