At the start of September we will be getting kids ready for their return to school by putting on a free self defense workshop for kids at both Gracie Barra Nottingham and Gracie Barra Arnold. We want them to feel fully prepared and empowered for when they go back to school, and this is the best place to start.
The class will look at common bullying scenarios and teach children BJJ based techniques to effectively react safely against them. As well as the physical techniques, we teach children to fight fire with water so that they know how to diffuse a situation without it becoming physical. We do this through discussing body language and how to use their words instead.
When children know how to tackle bullying in a safe and controlled way, they will have the self-confidence to stand up for themselves and their friends if they’re ever in a situation where they need to.
Please see below for the dates and times for each workshop, suitable for kids aged 7 and up:
Nottingham – Saturday the 24th September at 4pm
Arnold – Saturday the 3rd September at 3pm.
Spaces are limited, book now to avoid disappointment!
