UNSHAKABLE SELF-CONFIDENCE

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT

It's irresponsible to give someone a weapon without teaching them how to use it. We teach child exactly when to use, and not use, that they learn in class with 5 rules of engagement.

VERBAL ASSERTIVENESS

Verbal bullying is something all children will experience at some stage. While the techniques of Jiu Jitsu build their foundations, our 3 T Steps give them the tools to stand up for themselves.

CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT

Martial arts is well known for attempting to instil good character traits. Our character development programme makes manners, respect and discipline a daily habit.  

PERFECT PROGRAMS FOR EACH AGE GROUP

It's very common in martial arts to have youth students bunched into one class, few schools have classes separated by age group and experience. The problem with this is that there are children at different stages of learning being taught Jiu Jitsu the same way.

 

With Gracie Bullyproof, the Gracie University has gone to great lengths to create very structured, specific programs with relevant curriculums for each age and we are proud to offer them here in Tameside:
