Unshakable Confidence with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
Bullies target children who don’t stand up for themselves. By giving your child the non-violent Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques to neutralize a physical attack, they will have the confidence to take a stand against bullies before the harassment spirals out of control.
Verbal Self-defense Training
Verbal harassment is more common, and often times more damaging, than physical harassment. To ensure your child is ready to identify and overcome these inevitable attacks, we conduct a series of specific role-playing exercises each day of the camp.
Fitness that is fun!
Not all kids like to exercise, but all kids love to have fun!. Each morning we begin with the “animal warm-up,” and throughout the day we play several other games designed to give your child the exercise they need and the fun they want!
Character Development & Drug Defense
The connection we develop with the camp participants is strong, and we use this connection to instill the life lessons that every child needs. Each day we choose a different topic, from discipline and healthy living to drug defense and abduction prevention, so your child is ready for life beyond the playground.
Discounted Training for the Parents
“A family that trains together, stays together.” Realizing that many kids will be coming out with mothers and fathers who believe in the Gracie Way, we offer all family members 50% off regular group class rates for the week of the summer camp. If you’re brand new to the art, you can participate in our beginner Gracie Combatives classes, or Women Empowered (for the ladies), and if you’ve already earned your blue belt, or higher, you’re invited to participate in the Master Cycle classes. If you have a gi, bring it, if not, we have rentals you can borrow.
