(Columbus, GA, USA) – October. 1, 2014 – The Columbus school of Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu is now accepting students for its new Community Kids Self Defense program. The professionally created and administered martial arts training curriculum for boys and girls was especially designed with school children in mind.

Kids get excited about taking Gracie Barra classes because jiu-jitsu is great fun and a wonderful opportunity to learn self-defense. But their parents also recognize and appreciate the broader scope of benefits. Those include the fact that students get a regular dose of safe exercise while learning the valuable ethical principles and practical life lessons that define the Gracie Barra philosophy and lifestyle.

As an added benefit, for example, kids enrolled in the program are taught practical and easily implemented tools and strategies to help them counteract the troublesome phenomenon of bullying in school. Gracie Barra kids are much less likely to be bullied because they learn both verbal and non-verbal skills for deescalating and safely ending situations that might otherwise lead to violence. Of course they are also taught to safely and effectively defend themselves.

Gracie Barra jiu-jitsu is one of the most respected systems of martial arts because it was designed to be highly effective against much stronger and bigger opponents.

Even troubled kids who have enrolled in Gracie Barra training programs have learned to stop being bullies and become model students. That’s because the entire program puts a fun, safe, and healthy emphasis on sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, and self-confidence. Meanwhile Gracie Barra equips children to face a variety of personal challenges with proactive and positive solutions.

We believe that we can make a difference in the lives of the victims of bullying by teaching:

1. Avoidance

2. Building their confidence in themselves to inform an adult when appropriate

3. If need be, use Jiu-Jitsu techniques to defend and protect themselves or others when physically confronted by attacker.

Our program is designed to teach students how to identify a bully, ignor the verbal bullying, seek the assistance of an adult and if physically confronted, use Jiu-Jitsu to defend themselves. We have been very successful over the last three years with students who already practice with our school. All of our parents and students very quickly notice the confidence level, social skills and demeanor of their child make positive improvements.
