The Story of a Bullyproof First Grader

December 19, 2012

His language was wrong, but his confidence was right!

Nate is a first grader who does Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (not at a Gracie CTC). When a fourth grader tried to bully his friend, Nate felt inclined to step in and lend a helping hand. The image below is the actual letter from the school principal to Nate's parents. Even though we don't approve of Nate's choice of words, we are always happy to see that jiu-jitsu provides such profound confidence that children can help others as well as themselves. In other words, jiu-jitsu creates super-heroes.
