Empower Your Child to Confront Bullying with Confidence

Dear Parents,
In today’s fast-paced world, the challenge of bullying continues to loom large, casting a shadow over the lives of countless children from all walks of life. The fear, insecurity, and reluctance to go to school it causes can significantly dampen your child’s spirit and confidence.

Imagine this: Your child is cornered by a bully, their heart racing, mind flooded with fear, uncertain of how to react. The ripple effects of such encounters can be profound, impacting not just their present but their outlook on life, academic achievements, and ability to form healthy social bonds. Without the right tools and support, this cycle of fear and vulnerability can persist, leaving lasting scars.

But, what if there was a solution?

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Seattle is proud to present two sessions of the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp from June 24-28, and July 29-August 2, 2024. This isn’t just any camp; it’s a transformative experience designed to arm your child with unshakable confidence and the skills to protect themselves.

The Gracie Difference

Building a Strong Foundation for a Lifelong Journey

Gracie Bullyproof® - Ages 5-12 | Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Seattle

1. Critical Confidence

Increased Awareness: We teach your child to know the difference between “joking” and “bullying” so they know when and how to act  in each situation.

Unshakeable Confidence: A confident child is a Bullyproof child. Bullies seek “easy targets” – those who will not stand up to their abuse. We arm your child with the tools they need to overcome physical, verbal, and psychological harassment.

Total Responsibility: We prepare your child to deal with bullies without turning them into one. We emphasize discipline, responsibility, and respect throughout our kids martial arts program.  We teach the 5 “Rules of Engagement” to make sure they never abuse their power.

2. Verbal Jiu-Jitsu Training

One of the most pervasive and damaging forms of bullying is verbal harassment. Gracie Bullyproof is the kids’ jiu-jitsu program that makes “Verbal Jiu-Jitsu” part of its regular curriculum.

We’ve devised a series of role-playing exercises to teach kids how to identify and manage the common scenarios associated with verbal harassment and bullying.

Gracie Bullyproof students are taught how to speak assertively when necessary, but they also learn how to use direct eye contact and confident posture to deter bullies from targeting them.

3. "Push Teaching" vs. "Pull Teaching"

All the self-defense techniques are presented in the form of “jiu-jitsu” games so that kids are highly excited about learning them.

When a child makes a mistake, we don’t focus on the error. Instead, we emphasize what a child did correctly. Through positive reinforcement, we help the kids reach their full potential without jeopardizing their love for the art.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Kids Martial Arts Program.

Through our work, we have seen that confident kids make kinder kids. We teach children how to not only stand up to bullies for themselves, but how to stand up for others. Our Rules of Engagement teach children to avoid the fight if at all possible by first using their words, and then telling an adult.

When they do need to resort to physical self-defense, we do not teach children punches or kicks in the Gracie Bullyproof program, but rather, empowered by Brazilian Jiu-JItsu, to neutralize, defend, control, and negotiate if possible.

Upon arriving for your child’s first jiu-jitsu class, we will provide a uniform, called a gi, for them to wear. We recommend T-shirt, comfortable undergarments or leggings, and/or rash guard to wear under the gi.

Someone will be there to help you tie your child’s belt for the first time!

My Child Has ADHD. Is jiu-jitsu for them?

Yes! One of the great things about martial arts classes is that it’s an individual sport done in a group environment. We find all our students improve in their focus, self control, discipline and social skills. But the best part is…. They don’t even realize that is what our highly trained kids martial arts instructors are actually doing. They just think they are having fun!

The best way to find out for yourself is to take advantage of our limited time offer. You’ll find our team so helpful and dedicated to helping your child become the best version of themselves. If you are concerned about group classes for your child, we also offer private classes until they feel ready to take on the group class setting!

Many parents ask, what’s the difference between Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Karate classes? While we believe all martial-arts have value, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has not only been proven to be the most effective martial art for a smaller person to defend themselves in a real fight for nearly a century, it also can be the most gentle.

We don’t want our kids or students turning into bullies themselves, and we also believe self-defense should be scalable, depending on the situation. Whereas kids Karate lessons or Taekwondo classes rely solely on landing punches and kicks, jiu-jitsu for kids focuses on neutralizing a threat with verbal boundaries, distance management, body control, and eventual negotiation.

We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. We love parents getting involved! Even better… you can join in our martial arts classes for adults, and have yet another thing in common with your little one. We love seeing the bond of families who train together!

We believe jiu-jitsu is for children of all skill levels and abilities. Your child belongs here.

Through our kids martial arts classes, we have seen our students improve co-ordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline. Plus, they make lots of great friends!

Our instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts to kids. It’s their PASSION!
