Gracie Bullyproof®

Kids (starting at 7 years old)


Nearly all Jiu-Jitsu schools have all of their youth students bunched into one class, and a few schools have classes separated by age group. The Gracie Bullyproof® program is the only youth Jiu-Jitsu program that separates its kids by age AND experience level, so that every child gets the perfect balance of fun and challenge in their weekly classes. All kids begin in super-playful entry level programs for their age group, and as soon as a child reaches a certain level of maturity, they are promoted to the next training program.

Junior Combatives aka Junior Grapplers (7 to 12 years old)

In the Jr. Grapplers program, we focus on 33 non-violent self-defense techniques that teach children to “neutralize and negotiate” with the bullies. Verbal assertiveness strategies are a major portion of this curriculum. A child needs absolutely no experience to start, and we guarantee a noticeable increase in your child’s confidence within a few weeks!

Black Belt Club (Invitation only)

We invite children who excel in the Jr. Grapplers program to join the Black Belt Club. This is our most advanced youth Jiu-Jitsu program and joining the Black Belt Club is the highest honor for any youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu® practitioner. Kids in this program possess all the traits necessary for success on the path to black belt: discipline, respect, courage, leadership, loyalty, and compassion.
