In the beginning, Rorion didn't teach his children Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, he "played" Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Using a series of 10 playful jiu-jitsu games, Rorion engaged his children in the learning process while informally introducing them to the fundamental principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. All 10 Gracie Games are featured on discs 2 & 3.
On disc 4, your child will learn the definitive rules regarding the use of their techniques as well as the Verbal Jiu-Jitsu strategies that will enable them to take as stand against persistent verbal bullies. By introducing your child to the Rules of Engagement before they learn the Jr. Combatives techniques, you will ensure that they do not abuse their power, and you will give them the confidence that they will not be reprimanded in the event that they ever have to use the techniques in self-defense.
Only after they fell in love with the fun aspect of the art, did Rorion begin teaching his children, the 33 highly-effective non-violent techniques featured in the Jr. Combatives course. By teaching these techniques to your child, you will dramatically increase their ability to defend themselves and, more importantly, boost their confidence so dramatically, that they are less likely to be targeted by bullies.
