OUR GRACIE BULLYPROOF® PROGRAM WILL TEACH YOUR CHILD TO:
- Build unshakable confidence;
- Overcome bullies without violence;
- Use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies;
- Stay safe if physically assaulted.
According to statistics, 1 in 7 kids has been a victim of bullying. 11% of kids confessed to participating in bullying. And 89% of teachers report bullying as one of the main problems at schools.
The only thing harder than being a child in this situation is being a parent. You can’t control your child’s every step at school. How to make sure that your kids can defend themselves, and at the same time — don’t turn into a threat to others?
We at Gracie Jiu-Jitsu® can help with that. Gracie BULLYPROOF® program is our answer.
We show kids how to grow physically and, what is more important – emotionally, in a welcoming atmosphere. We understand that it’s crucial to teach your kids self-defense and not turn them into a bully.
During the Gracie BULLYPROOF® program, your child will master Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques, necessary for self-defense, and will learn to use the skills only when it’s justified. Certified instructors are specifically trained to work with kids and know how to properly motivate and encourage self-development.
The Gracie Jiu-Jitsu® BULLYPROOF® program is already recognized by CNN, Oprah, and others as one of the most effective bully counter-measures for children aged from 5 to 12. The Gracie BULLYPROOF® program is designed to prepare your child for various life situations — specifically for the situations when it truly matters.
The exact opposite is true. Our students learn that everything they are taught is for self-defense in case of emergency only, and that “with great power comes great responsibility”. Parents of students in our junior program find our classes to be a “personality balancer”. If a child is naturally aggressive he or she becomes less so, and if they are shy and introverted, they learn to speak up for themselves and they come out of their shell easier.
Statistically speaking, martial arts training is safer than soccer, baseball, and more popular sports. Every sport has the potential for injury. This is why we are EXTRA careful when we run our classes, and only use expertly trained ADULT instructors, have matted floors and walls and are hyper vigilant during training.
Most children are put into team sports and forced to train at the pace of a group. While there are benefits to this, we treat children as individuals and let them progress at their own pace, so they only compete with themselves. Nobody sits out in our classes or are picked last for anything, and nobody’s confidence is damaged just because they are too big or too small, etc.
We have a ton of experience teaching children with a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions who enjoy and do well in our program. Consult with your child’s doctor or therapist to confirm there is no conflict, and if they give you the green light, your child will probably surprise you.
Though your child will learn the importance of commitment and dedication as major factors in accomplishing their goals, we completely empathize with you, the father or mother, being unsure when starting out. This is why we offer money back guarantees which can be laid out in your initial consultation with a Program Manager.
