April is Anti-Bullying Month for Gracie Barra


We are pleased to announce a free four week anti-bullying program that will start at 9am this Saturday, April 6 at our Gracie Barra San Clemente location. The classes are available to both members and non-members and will run until 10:30am. The suggested age of attendees is 6 to 13.

The classes will cover techniques and methods to prevent and respond to bullying, and provide an introduction to basic self-defense aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The final meeting of the Anti-Bullying series will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, April 27. A closing ceremony will be held on the same day, and participants will receive a certificate of completion.

The anti-bullying curriculum will begin with a discussion of the concerns that each participant has in regards to bullying. The program clearly covers what bullying really is, and how it affects people – the bully, those who are bullied, and others. We stress appropriate responses to bullies, compassion, and how to avoid conflicts and harmful physical confrontations.

We spend time talking about things like how to walk away from a bully, how to talk a bully out of bullying, telling adults, parents and teachers when bullying occurs, and stress that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu based physical anti-bullying techniques are taught to be used only when necessary.

The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques we teach provide a foundation for effective self-defense and good conditioning. These are keys to self-esteem and self-confidence. We hope to help young people develop the mental and physical tools they need to stay in top shape, along with teaching effective ways to evade, neutralize and overcome an attacker if necessary.

For more information about the classes, call 949-361-9411 or visit us at the academy.
