How to Bullyproof a Nation

October 17, 2012

Help us tap out bullying once and for all!

A few weeks ago, surveillance camera video footage from a middle school in Indiana surfaced on the internet of a 13-year-old by, Austin McDaniel, getting beat mercilessly by a 15-year-old bully while at least a dozen bystanders did nothing to help. 11 days later, Austin's best friend, Logan, got beat up by the same bullies. Even though we are making arrangements for Austin and Logan to come to Torrance to spend time training at the Gracie Academy, we can't reach everyone, and it's time for us to work together to empower the kids whose stories don't every make it into the public eye. The time has come for bullying to get tapped out for good, and we need your help to make it happen.

The Gracie Family has been "bullyproofing" children for 85 years, and has concluded that there are only three solutions to bullying:

1) Bullyproof the Victims
2) Bullyproof the Bullies
3) Bullyproof the Schools

In this new video, Rener Gracie explains how each of the three solutions must be executed to have the greatest possible impact on our nation's youth. If you agree with the principles presented in the video, please help us share it with as many people as possible. Widespread awareness of these solutions is the only way we stand chance of winning this fight.
