Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will help your kids neutralize the threat of bullies by:
Giving them the confidence to stand up to various types of bullying, such as physical, emotional, or cyber.
Giving them the tools to diffuse the situation before it becomes physical.
Giving them the techniques to defend themselves from physical bullying by gaining control of the attacker until help arrives instead of utilizing more violent methods such as strikes.
