Every month in the Canada, many children miss school due to fear of bullies. In the Gracie Barra Anti-Bullying Community program, our goal is to instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence. Due to the non-violent nature of the techniques, our program is one of the few effective counter-measures to bullying for children between the ages of 5 and 13. We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defence techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. Importantly, we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Gracie Barra New Westminster head instructor Professor Raz Chan has introduced Brazilian jiu-jitsu to elementary school children in the New Westminster area where the school administrators have embraced the teaching of discipline, respect and nonviolent response to bullying. The bottom line is: we will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.
