Ages 7 - 13
A confident child is a Bullyproof child.
At some point or another, every child will be targeted by a bully. The Gracie Bullyproof objective is to give your child the physical, psychological, and verbal tools to overcome bullies.
Our aim is not to encourage confrontation, but rather, to reduce fear and build confidence in order to reduce your child’s risk of being targeted.
No more worrying about bullies!
In the Jr. Grapplers’ program, we focus on 33 non-violent self-defense techniques, which teach children to “control and negotiate” with the bullies, rather than resort to violent strikes. Verbal assertiveness strategies also play a huge part in this program.
Powerful Character Development
In addition to unshakable confidence, our goal is to develop your child’s character to ensure success in all aspects of life. There are six chapters in the Gracie Character Development Program: Responsibility, Health, Respect, Citizenship, Manners, and Caring. We spend two months on each chapter, and during each class we dedicate a few minutes to discussing the featured character trait and the simple things your child can do to make it part of their everyday lives.
