Books, articles, and even TV shows, have been produced in recent years about the increase in intimidation by kids against other kids in schools throughout the world. Japan, England, and, of course, the U.S. have been highlighted. The image of some bully sitting on top of their child is a parent’s greatest fear, and a child’s! What are they to do?
Many parents turn to Martial Arts like Tae Kwon Do, Karate, Kung Fu, etc. which are known as “striking” sports.
The problem is three fold; First of all a striking sport is difficult to even practice without suffering injuries. Secondly, to practice, instructors must restrict practice to little or “no contact” forms, which, literally, diminishes their effectiveness to be used in the real world. Thirdly, most “real” altercations end up off the feet and on to the ground.
In the last 10 to 20 years, because of the efforts of the GRACIE family in what are called “Mixed Martial Arts” competitions; one form of Martial Art has emerged above all others (including all striking arts) as the single most effective means of self-defense among ALL forms of self-defense. That art is called GRACIE/BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU. Because Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a “submission” art, it involves minimal striking and hence the probability of injuries is dramatically diminished, and real world defense techniques can be easily learned by the students with low risk.
Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, by its techniques, is specifically designed to allow the smaller person to defeat the larger person. It surprises the uninitiated that girls can compete on even terms with boys in all the junior and children’s divisions at competitions throughout the world. While it sounds amazing, it is true, that Gracie/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters have defeated opponents that outweigh them by well over 100 pounds; and have been doing so for many years. This ability is the great gift of the Gracie family.
If you are concerned about your own child’s capability to defend themselves, in or out of school, there is a way to solve that problem and, at the same time, dramatically enhance your child’s self esteem and sense of accomplishment.
We offer Jiu-Jitsu, the “gentle art”, for kids from the Gracie family.
The Gracie style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was founded in 1925 by Charles’ grandfather Carlos Gracie.
The Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy of Reno, in addition to self-defense, teaches children self-discipline, self-confidence, competitiveness, and self-respect; key ingredients for children to succeed in the world today.
