I'm not very sporty or coordinated... Is that ok?

Absolutely!  In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started.  So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve!  You’ll find that our very experienced martial arts instructors, are trained to keep their teaching simple.  So even the most uncoordinated person will develop ‘ninja-like’ skills!  Come see for yourself!

Will my child become a bully?

Most martial arts programs rely on striking as the first line of self-defense against an attacker. In the Gracie Bullyproof program we take a different approach. All the techniques are purely defensive and utilize no strikes. Furthermore, we teach children how to defuse confrontations with words and never to initiate physical aggression. In the Gracie Bullyproof program, we teach the children how to fight fire with water so that you never have to worry about your child becoming a bully under our guidance.


RMA's youth boxing program is purely geared for sport competition and not a means for self-defense. Teaching striking to your child will not make them a bully. We teach respect above all else.
