Gracie Barra Kids are not only trained to defend themselves physically, but also in anti-bullying techniques. Jiu Jitsu is a way of life and promotes healthy lifestyles along with self-defense in necessary situations. Our GB Kids are immersed in an environment of exercise and healthy habits to build a foundation of understanding around how healthy lifestyles create a better future. The kids programs are also focused around anti-bullying. We take a look at how the child interacts with others and help them find a balance. Our techniques specifically focus on giving the child tools to deal with a bully and how to not become a bully.
