Make the difference! Prepare your child for bullies!
Bullying is such a widespread problem in the world these days, most schools have implemented a zero-tolerance bullying policy. Although this policy has reduced physical abuse, it has done little to remedy the ever-increasing problem of verbal harassment.
In this program, a few rules need to be followed:
#1: Avoid the fight at all costs.
#2: If physically attacked, defend yourself.
#3: Never punch or kick the bully, establish control and negotiate.
#4: When applying submissions, use minimal force and negotiate.
In this program your child will learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu having fun with the GRACIE games and different techniques like,Guillotine Defense, Standing Arm Control, Double Under HookGuard Pass, Take The Back, Headlock Counters, Double Leg Takedown, Headlock Escapes, Punch Block Series, Body Fold Takedown, Clinch (Conservative Opponent), and many other techniques.
