The fifth graders at Lincoln Elementary have been lucky enough to gain access to Jiu-Jitsu in their school. The team at GMA Gracie Morumbi brought a bully prevention program into a fifth grade class to help them gain confidence, learn self-defense and have fun in the process.

In Simi Valley, CA another school was granted the presence of a five year-old student, Brandon, who came along with Professor Erik to teach students the importance of staying safe. They learned the “No, Go, Yell, Tell” system to help them deal with bullies with Brandon as the teacher’s assistant.

If the students choose to pursue training Jiu-Jitsu further, they’ve already taken the first step and getting on the mats at Gracie Morumbi is an easy transition.
