Verbal Jiu-Jitsu

January 28, 2010

Originally, the
GRACIE BULLYPROOF instructional DVD series

was intended to teach you (the parents) how to teach your children the
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques to use in case they were physically
attacked by a bully. In the past few months, however, we did some
research and found that, due to the zero-tolerance bullying policies at
schools nationwide, most harassment was verbal, not physical. We even
found reports on three terrible incidents of persistent verbal
harassment which ended in with suicide. (

In order to ensure that the BULLYPROOF program provides your child with
all the skills needed to deal with persistent bullies, physical OR
verbal, we decided to reshoot disc 4 of the collection to include
Verbal Jiu-Jitsu. Now your child will have a step-by-step plan to
follow if they become the target of persistent verbal abuse. Click on
the link below for a short clip on Verbal Jiu-Jitsu from the "Three
T-Steps" discussion featured on disc 4, Rules of Engagement.
