Atomic Jiu-Jitsu Warriors™
Every month in the United States, three million children miss school due to fear of bullies. In our Atomic Jiu-Jitsu Warrior- Bully Prevention 101™ program, our goal is to instill your child with confidence and skill so they can overcome bullies without violence.
We teach your child how to utilize verbal and physical skills to avoid being a target or victim of a bully. Verbal and physical Jiu-jitsu is the answer to effectively counter what bullies do everyday. Our programs are designed to teach children between the ages of 3 and 13 the necessary skills to deal with bullies.

We will teach your child to use verbal assertiveness to deter bullies and several non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. We use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Numerous school districts have embraced the defensive nature of Jiu-Jitsu techniques as a reasonable, nonviolent response to bullying. The bottom line is: we will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.
If you’re interested in instilling your child with confidence while reinforcing positive values and good character development, our Bully Prevention program is for you! If your child has previously tried Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and had a negative experience, give us a chance for 14 days. We believe they will love our programs structure and positive atmosphere for learning!
Studies suggest that bullying may be the leading cause of low self-esteem in children, and according to some surveys, less than 15% of kids actually report acts of bullying. A child’s inability to stand up to a bully is rooted in profound fear for their personal safety. Ironically, the victims know that they must confront the bully and would like nothing more than to stand up to them. But, they simply can’t follow through for fear of the physical harm that backs the bully’s every action. And, therein lies the challenge – how do you instill in a victim of bullying the confidence to face the tormentor, look them in the eye, and back them down? The answer is simple – teach the victims to defend themselves against physical attack, and the rest will follow.
Fighting without Striking
Most martial arts programs rely on striking the attacker with violent punches and kicks, in Atomics’ Bully Prevention 101 program we take a different approach. We teach your child techniques designed to be purely defensive, utilizing no strikes. Furthermore, we teach children how to defuse confrontations with words and never to initiate a physical altercation. If attacked, we offer techniques to non-violently neutralize the threat and gain control until help arrives. Your child will learn how to defend themselves in a safe, structured, positive environment. Learning how to defeat bullies without actually becoming one!
Atomics’ Bully Prevention 101™ program prepares your child using a three-pronged approach:
Harassment comes in many forms. Sometimes, a victim doesn’t take a stand because they can’t differentiate between “joking” and “bullying.” We teach your child to differentiate between harmless play and harmful harassment so they know precisely when and how to act in each circumstance.
Bully Prevention starts with a confident and trained child. Bullies seek, easy targets– those who will tolerate their abuse and can’t or won’t stand up for themselves. We will teach your child the necessary tools needed to overcome physical, verbal, and psychological harassment. They will become so confident in themselves and their abilities that no bully will try to harass them.
We will prepare your child to deal with bullies without turning them into one. Atomics’ core values emphasize discipline, responsibility, and respect. We demand it from ourselves as well as your child. We teach your child the four “Golden Rules of Engagement” to ensure they never abuse their power and skills.
The Golden Rules of Engagement
Teaching a child Jiu-Jitsu without teaching them when to use it, is reckless. We teach children precisely when they can, and cannot, use the techniques they are learning. The four “Rules of Engagement” are regularly rehearsed in class so that children will never abuse their power. Equally important, they will not hesitate to take a stand when they are bullied.
Avoid the fight at all costs, walk Away!
If verbally attacked, walk away!
If physically attacked, defend yourself!
Never strike the bully, establish control, and negotiate.
Although we discuss the Golden Rules of Engagement in our Bully Prevention 101™ classes, we strongly encourage you to discuss the rules at home to assure your child that they have your support in the event that they need to take a stand against bullying.

Verbal Jiu-Jitsu Training
One of the most pervasive and damaging forms of bullying is verbal harassment. Atomic utilizes Verbal Assertiveness Training also known as Verbal Jiu-Jitsu as part of its regular curriculum. We utilize role playing and specific situations to exercise your child’s voice. We teach children how to identify and manage the most common verbal harassments and bullying. Your child will learn how to differentiate between “bullying” and “joking.” Children are taught how to speak assertively when necessary, but they also learn how to use direct eye contact, confident posture, and deliberate movements to deter bullies from targeting them.
Perfect Programs for
Many Jiu-Jitsu schools have all of their youth students bunched into one class, and a few schools have classes separated by age group or skill set. Atomics’ Bully Prevention 101™ program separates kids by age AND experience level. We want every child to find the perfect balance of fun and challenging techniques in their weekly classes. All kids begin in super-playful entry level programs for their age group, and as soon as a child reaches a certain level of maturity, they are promoted to the next training program. The most amazing part of programs is no experience necessary. We have the right program for your child! We believe in our programs so much. We give you 14 days to try them out for FREE!

“Push Teaching” vs.
The teaching methodologies used in programs are unlike anything else in BJJ. Not only are all the entry-level techniques presented in the form of “jiu-jitsu” games so that kids are highly enthused about learning them, but we use “push teaching” rather than “pull teaching.” When a child makes a mistake, we don’t focus on the error, instead, we emphasize the correctly executed aspects of the move. Through this carefully layered positive reinforcement, we help children reach their full potential without jeopardizing their love for the art.
Atomic Character Development Program
We have found that our instructors develop powerful bonds with every student on the mat, but especially with our youth practitioners. We leverage this connection to help you develop your child’s character for success in all aspects of life. The Atomic Character Development Program consists of six chapters: Responsibility, Health, Respect, Citizenship, Manners, and Caring. We spend two months on each chapter. In every class, we discuss the featured character trait for 10 minutes, emphasizing the simple things your child can do to make it a part of their life. The secret to success lies in our use of a unique point-based reward system that we tie to attendance at Atomic Game Day, a special two-hour party where they get to play tons of games with all the instructors and children. Only Children who score enough points during the two-month chapter qualify to attend Atomic Game Day, so it’s a powerful incentive for kids and a useful tool for parents to encourage positive behavior at home and school. Two times a year, we offer an offsite Atomic Game Day Party. This is an amazing bonding experience for our families and extremely fun time for the kids! Atomic Game Day is so much fun that parents will often try to put on a uniform just so they can join the party!
