Bullying is a major problem affecting children in the UAE and many parents aren’t aware that their young ones are going through issues. According to the Ministry of education in 2019, 1 in 4 children are bullied.
In our children’s program, our goal is to instill your child with unshakable confidence so they can non-violently defend themselves when verbally, psychologically or physically bullied, without turning them into one.


Unlike most martial arts programs, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu doesn’t rely on striking the attacker with violent punches, kicks, knees, and elbows; All the techniques are purely defensive and non-violent.
Knowledge is indeed power and that is why through the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, our students also learn when they can and cannot use the techniques they are learning.
