A large issue for kids today is the presence of bullying. Jiu-Jitsu is a great martial art for not only self-defense in bullying cases but in building the confidence to prevent it altogether. Gracie Barra has been a leader in their bully-proof programs and now they are releasing a new program for the year of 2013 starting April 6.
During the entire month of April they are offering a free self-defense program that will help kids ages six and up to properly prevent, respond and deal with bullying.
Now the team has designed a curriculum broken down into three steps:
1- Walk away
2- Stand up for yourself
3- Protect yourself
“Turn bullying from a potential lifetime trauma, into an opportunity to build a stronger character in your child.”
