Approximately 1 in 4 youth are affected by bullying during the school year. This negatively impacts millions of people around the world and sadly has taken many lives.
Back in 2015 Naomi Johnson, a young teen was brutally attacked by a group of girls who she considered “friends”. Naomi was knocked unconscious and suffered other physical, and mental injuries. After seeing the video on social media, Ryron and Rener Gracie sought out Naomi and her family to sponsor them for a one-week training experience, so that Naomi and her family could learn self defense and build confidence. Not only did it do just that for Naomi, Eve and Victoria Gracie also helped her learn about setting boundaries.
Every July, the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp is offered in Torrance, California along with many other Certified Training Centers around the world. The camp is open to all children ages 6-14 and no experience is necessary.

Jiu jitsu is a wonderful tool for self defense, discipline and confidence building. This sport allows people to build their confidence in knowing how to defend themselves in potentially dangerous situations. It builds a great team atmosphere and a sense of moral and safety with people you can trust.
