According to, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 71 percent of young people admit to having witnessed bullying in school, with 28 percent in grades 6 through 12 have experienced bullying. Verbal, social, and physical bullying are the three most common forms of harassment.

The Gracie Bullyproof program is designed to build personal confidence in children aged 5 through 12 and instill the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be able to counter bullying in a strongly assertive, yet nonviolent manner. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Fredericksburg is a certified training center for deterrent techniques that do not incite counter-violence.

The Fredericksburg, VA nonviolent defensive training provided through the Gracie Bullyproof program teaches children leverage-based control holds and other nonviolent techniques. The goal of these techniques is the quick de-escalation of a conflict situation and the neutralization of any danger to victims and bystanders.

The Jiu-Jitsu school in Fredericksburg offers the Little Champs program for children aged 5 through 7, the Jr. Grapplers program for 8 to 12-year-olds, and the invitation-only Black Belt Club for advanced students who consistently demonstrate discipline, respect, courage, leadership, loyalty, and compassion.

The program has a focused psychological component that includes the development of awareness of behavior that constitutes bullying. This awareness is complemented by the mental and physical ability to overcome any form of harassment, and the development of control, discipline, and responsibility for the use of these techniques.
