The Calvert MMA Academy is passionate about bully prevention and self defense! Most of our instructors where victims of bullies themselves when they were school age and remember the helplessness/fear they felt from being bullied. It’s from these experiences our instructor staff is 100% dedicated to helping other victims of bullying. Bullying unfortunately is a fact of life that will never go away, but through the training provided at the Calvert MMA Academy, you can help bully proof your child for life!
The Calvert MMA Academy is proud to offer the only authentic Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (BullyProof) curriculum in Southern Maryland. Our popular Lineage BJJ – Gracie Jiu-Jitsu BullyProof youth program offers a friendly, safe and fun environment designed to instill the confidence, discipline, and character each child needs to solve problems, set goals, and succeed. Children in our program learn the use of verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. More importantly, we do not teach how to punch or kick in our bully prevention program, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Students in our program also learn competition techniques to prepare themselves to compete in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments if desired. Our Lineage BJJ – Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Youth Program teaches leadership and Jiu-Jitsu techniques thru game playing. We have a very high adult instructor to student ratio. Each student receives individual attention / instruction in every class.
Our Youth Programs are divided into two age groups; Little Sharks ages 4-7, and Youth BJJ / BullyProof ages 8-13.
