Gracie Fernandina gym offering scholarships to end Bullying

YULEE, Fla. - May 1, 2014 - PRLog -- Gracie Fernandina in Yulee, FL is providing local kids scholarships to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for free. As part of our Fearless Futures program, school resource officers, teachers, guidance counselors, or other school officials can recommend kids they feel are being bullied or are at risk for being bullied for a two month scholarship. During their time at the gym they will learn both self defense and coping tools to be able to resolve their problems with their bullies.

We have been successfully running this program with our local middle school and have made a huge difference in many of the kids. Parents report their grades are up, their attendance has improved, and their behavior is wonderful. We are looking for support from the community to help develop this program. We invite parents of bullied children to have their school representatives contact us so we can get this program to those who need it most.

We have recently started a Go fund me account to continue the scholarships beyond the two months.
