This year UFAF is proud
to present the return of Rener Gracie of the world famous
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy
Bullyproof® Program has
been featured on
Oprah as one of the
world's leading anti-bullying self-defense program for
kids. For the first time ever, UFAF has partnered with
the renowned Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy to teach your kids
how to "Fight fire with water!"
In addition to our
world class CKD competition experience in forms,
weapons, fighting, and jiu-jitsu at this year's
International Training Conference, we will host a
special 2-day (4 hours per day) Gracie Bullyproof Camp
for kids (ages 6-12). The camp will be taught by none
other than the creator of the Gracie Bullyproof program,
To learn more about
what makes the Gracie Bullyproof program so unique,
watch this video and then continue reading below to see
what your child can expect from this year's UFAF Gracie
Bullyproof Summer Camp.
Unshakable Confidence with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
At the foundation of the Gracie Bullyproof program is the belief
that a confident child is a "bullyproof" child. By giving children
the non-violent self-defense skills to neutralize the violent
physical attack of an aggressive bully, Gracie Bullyproof gives them
the unshakable confidence needed to verbally address bullies and
defeat them WITHOUT violence. The UFAF Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp
is specifically designed for kids between the ages of 8 and 12. No
previous experience is necessary to participate. There will be
several certified instructors assisting Rener Gracie during the camp
so that everyone will get hands-on instruction and instant feedback
on their progress. Regardless of age or experience level, your child
will have a blast!
Verbal Self-defense Training
Not every child will get in a fist fight in their life, but at one
point or another, every child will be the target of verbal
harassment. Although difficult to detect, verbal bullying is far
more common and, in many cases, more damaging than physical
harassment. And the worst part is that the harassment often comes
from their so-called "friends." To ensure your child is ready for
this inevitable reality, much of the camp is dedicated to teaching
your child how to identify and defend against verbal bullies. Rener
will have in-depth discussions on the psychology of bullying, verbal
harassment in particular, and he will use role-playing exercises to
learn and reinforce time-tested verbal assertiveness strategies that
your child can use to defeat verbal bullies who target them, at
school and in life.
Fun and Fitness for All Ages
Most kids don't like to "work out," but every kid likes to have fun.
During the camp, Rener will conduct several games, and conduct a
series of "animal exercise" routines designed to give your child a
full-body workout while teaching them that fitness can be fun!
Character Development & Drug Defense
To ensure that your child experiences the most powerful
transformation possible, Rener will spend a significant amount of
time discussing critical topics such as drug defense, child
abduction prevention, and character development.
Parents Preparation Course
Although not mandatory, all parents are encouraged to watch as Rener
conducts the Gracie Bullyproof Camp. Towards the end of the camp, he
will take time to meet with the parents and discuss what things they
can do at home to reinforce the skills learned by the children
during the camp, so that they can continue to "bullyproof' their
children long after the camp is over!
