The Gracie Bullyproof® Program
In the Gracie Bullyproof program, our goal is to instill unshakable confidence in your child so they can overcome bullies without violence. Due to the non-violent nature of the techniques taught in the Gracie Bullyproof program, it has been proven as one of the few effective counter-measures to bullying for children between the ages of 5 and 13.
Your child will learn to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. It is important to note that we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence.
Numerous school districts have embraced the defensive nature of the Gracie Bullyproof techniques as a reasonable, non-violent response to bullying and some even host Gracie Bullyproof classes on campus! The bottom line is: we will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.
