Stop Bullying

Why is so important to

carefully address bullying

  • Bullied children are 2 times more likely to have attempted suicide
  • Over 3,000,000 kids stay home from school at least once per month due to bullying
  • 44.5% of students who are frequently bullied are expected to end their education at the secondary level.
  • 15% of all school absenteeism is directly related to fears of being bullied at school
  • 25% of teachers see nothing wrong with bullying or putdowns and consequently intervene in only 4% of bullying incidents.
  • Nearly 75% of school shootings have been linked to harassment and bullying.


Our Program

The Gracie Barra Anti-bullying Program is extremely efficient and effective against bullying for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years.

We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and various nonviolent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted.

It’s important to point out that we don’t teach you how to throw a punch or kick, as this usually does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based withholdings of control to neutralize threats without violence.

As a result, your child will be prepared to defend himself physically and emotionally against bullies.
