Gracie Bullyproof Sponsorship

April 3, 2014

Send in Your Video by April 30, 2014

Ryron and Rener Gracie want to sponsor at least one BULLY and at least one VICTIM of bullying to come to California for the one-week Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp this August, but we need your help to find the right candidates! In this video, Ryron and Rener explain how they've effectively used jiu-jitsu to "Bullyproof" as many bullies as they have victims, by re-programming their perceived "power advantages." If your child has been affected by bullying or you know someone who has, please share this video and let's make this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity possible for the bullies and/or victims who need it most!

To enter to win the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp scholarship, the parent needs to submit a video which includes the following:

1) Parent tell us your name and where you're from
2) Parent description of specific bullying incidences and frequency of harassment
3) Child tell us your name and age
4) Child must answer the following questions: 1) How long have you been bullied? 2) What do the bullies do to you? 3) Why do you think kids bully you?

Note: The answers to the questions in #4 will obviously differ if the child is the bully.

Once the video is finished, please title the video: "Bullyproof My Child (First Name)" and insert the child's first name in the parenthesis. Upload the video to YouTube and send us the link to along with your contact information, and please insert the video name in the subject line of the email. That's it!

We will select and announce the winners on April 30th. To learn more about the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp, go to - If you know anyone who has a child who could benefit from this life-changing jiu-jitsu experience, please forward this information to them!
