Every day in the United States, an estimated 150,000 kids miss school due to fear or intimidation of bullies. Furthermore, that very fear of bullying leads to low self-esteem and depression in children and adolescents alike. Making matters worse is the fact that bullying goes virtually unaccounted for, with less than 15% of children actually reporting the abuse.

Bullies rely on fear tactics, coercion and intimidation to gain power. They assert dominance over their victims through repeated acts of aggressive behavior, inflicting both physical and mental harm. Though it is common knowledge that the only way to defeat bullies is to stand up to them, most children feel incapable of confronting their tormentors because of an overwhelming concern for their personal safety. At RPBJJ, we instill the confidence necessary for a target of bullying to face his/her aggressor, thus neutralizing the situation and restoring the balance of power.

Our approach is simple and straight forward. We equip our students with the tools necessary to defend themselves against physical attack, which, in turn, revitalizes confidence, leading to a healthy physical and mental state of being. While most martial arts programs rely on striking the attacker with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows, our Bully Proof Kid’s Program utilizes the unique and highly effective approach of using purely defensive techniques. The focus of our curriculum is self-defense with no striking necessary for success. If attacked, our students are prepared to defend themselves with techniques that non-violently neutralize the threat and allow them to gain control of their opponent. At RPBJJ, we operate under the belief that the most effective way to fight fire is with water.

Our students will also become well-versed in the sport aspect of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, giving them the skills to succeed on a competitive level. They will learn the rules of competition and the point system, as outlined by the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation. Children are never required to compete, but should they choose to participate in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments, they will be prepared.
