Childrens Martial Arts Classes in Mossley, Tameside
If you're interested in reaping the benefits that come with your child learning martial arts, such as getting active, making new friends and feeling new levels of confidence and esteem - but you're concerned that your child won't stick with it? Maybe you want them to learn how to defend themselves but don't want to impede on the positive character values you've spent years trying to instil? Then Gracie Bullyproof will be the perfect children's martial arts program for you!
Gracie Bullyproof is our martial arts program for children (ages 8-12) based on the most important techniques of Jiu Jitsu. Alongside effective self-defence, your child will learn verbal assertiveness skills and develop incredible character while having tons of fun! Featured on Oprah.com, Yahoo! and CNN (plus a mention on ITV's This Morning) - thousands of parents around the world love this program, here's why:
A child’s inability to stand up to a bully is rooted in profound fear for their personal safety that backs the bully's every action. Therein lies the challenge – how do you instil in a victim of bullying the confidence to face the tormentor, look them in the eye, and back them down? The answer is simple – teach the victims to defend themselves against physical attack, and the rest will follow - and there's no better martial art for this than Jiu Jitsu.
Teaching a child jiu-jitsu without teaching them when to use it, is akin to giving someone a weapon without teaching them how to use it. Gracie Bullyproof actually teaches children precisely when they can, and cannot, use the techniques they are learning. Plus, our character development program is designed to re-enforce great character values such as respect, manners and discipline!
Fighting Fire with Water
Most martial arts programs rely on striking the attacker with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows, but in the Gracie Bullyproof program we take a different approach. If attacked, we offer techniques to non-violently neutralise the threat and gain control until help arrives. In the Gracie Bullyproof program, we teach the children how to fight fire with water.
