Unshakable Confidence with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
At the foundation of the Gracie Bullyproof program is the belief that a confident child is a "bullyproof" child. By giving children the non-violent self-defense skills to neutralize the violent physical attack of an aggressive bully, we give them the unshakable confidence needed to verbally address bullies and defeat them WITHOUT violence. The Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp is specifically designed for kids between the ages of 6 and 14. No previous experience is necessary to participate. There will be several certified instructors overseeing the group so that all children will get hands-on instruction and instant feedback on their progress. Regardless of age or experience level, your child will have a blast!
Verbal Self-defense Training
Not every child will get in a fist fight in their life, but at one point or another, every child will be the target of verbal harassment. Although difficult to detect, verbal bullying is far more common and, in many cases, more damaging than physical harassment. And the worst part is that the harassment often comes from their so-called "friends." To ensure your child is ready for this inevitable reality, a large portion of the camp is dedicated to teaching your child how to identify and defend against verbal bullies. We will have in-depth discussions on the psychology of bullying, verbal harassment in particular, and we will use role-playing exercises to learn and reinforce time-tested verbal assertiveness strategies that your child can use to defeat verbal bullies who target them, at school and in life.
Fun and Fitness for All Ages
Most kids don't like to "work out," but every kid likes to have fun. Every day we will play tons of games, conduct a series of "animal exercise" routines designed to give your child a full-body workout while teaching them that fitness can be fun!
Character Development & Drug Defense
The connection we develop with the camp participants is so strong, that if we only prepare them to deal with bullies, we would not be maximizing our time together. To ensure that your child experiences the most powerful transformation possible, we spend a significant amount of time discussing critical topics such as drug defense, child abduction prevention, and character development. Our hope is that by earning your child's respect and admiration, we can form a unique bond that will help us ensure that your child is ready for life beyond the playground.
