Martial Arts are not just for self-defense. Like any sport or training program, it can help improve coordination, stamina, strength, flexibility, and more. But beyond the physical benefits, martial arts can also lead to improved concentration, relaxation and reduced stress.

Naomi's 1-Week Transformation

Watch "13 Reasons Why" on Netflix and you'll understand the potential tragedy that was avoided by reaching out to Naomi Johnson when we did. It was incredibly courageous of her to accept our offer. Help us share her story, together we can save lives.

Back Story:
In July 2015, 14-year-old Naomi Johnson was brutally assaulted and knocked unconscious by 5 girls who were considered her "friends." The attackers shared the video on social media, and it went viral. The Johnson family was devastated and Noami dropped out of school. After seeing the video, Ryron and Rener Gracie offered to sponsor Naomi and her family to come to California for a one-week fully-immersive training experience. Still torn by the incident, the Johnsons hesitated to accept the offer, but eventually they agreed. Not only did Naomi learn jiu-jitsu and regain the confidence that was shattered on that fateful July evening, but, with the help of Eve & Victoria Gracie, she learned the most important self-defense skill that one must use with bullies, friends, and especially bullies who call themselves friends.

BULLYPROOF Summer Camp (July 24-28, 2017)
Every July, the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp is offered in Torrance, California (Headquarters) as well as several other Certified Training Centers worldwide. No experience is necessary and the camp is open to all children ages 6-14. This is our most popular camp of the year, so pre-registration is a must if you want to reserve a spot for your child. To learn more about Summer Camp and how the Gracie Bullyproof program can help your child, visit For families who can't make it to the camp, the entire program is available online so you can BULLYPROOF your child from home!

Help Support the Johnsons
The Johnsons set up a GoFundMe account to help cover medical expenses resulting from Naomi's injuries, to donate visit:

It is NEVER the Victim's Fault!

It is a man's responsibility to respect women and their boundaries. But until this day comes, we encourage women to learn self defense; not because it's their responsibility, but because it's their reality.
