Marcio Andre Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Ahwatukee is holding a FREE bully prevention seminar for kids and parents on Saturday October 12
Marcio Andre is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion that has recently relocated from Rio de Janeiro to Ahwatukee, AZ.
Marcio Andre is well known for his accomplishments and love for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, however he also wants to make a positive impact by creating a safe and knowledgeable community to live in. Growing up in Brazil, bullying was a regular way of life. Marcio joined a local jiu jitsu gym to make him tougher but he did not expect to give him a great respect for others and new perspective on life.
With his new gym which opened in August in Ahwatukee, he is holding his first free anti-bullying and self-defense class. This class is not just for kids but men and women to learn how to defend themselves in the face of an attacker.This seminar will cover a variety of techniques to stop bullying. Bullying is very common in American schools (1 in 5 students experiencing bullying)
We’ll first discuss calling out bullying behavior and standing up to a bully using words, and also teach fundamental Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques to stay safe if a bully lash out physically. The aim is to help kids learn techniques to deal, cope, avoid and defend against bullies. Our seminar is more than self-defense, it’s about giving your child anti-bullying tools to deal with bullies in the classroom, playground, bus or neighborhood.
