Every month in the United States, three million children miss school due to fear of bullies. In the Gracie Bullyproof program, our goal is to instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence. Due to the non-violent nature of the techniques, CNN, ABC, NBC, and Oprah have featured the Gracie Bullyproof program as one of the few effective counter-measures to bullying for children between the ages of 5 and 13. 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. Importantly, we don’t teach how to punch or kick, since this often does more harm than good. Instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Numerous school districts have embraced the defensive nature of the Gracie Bullyproof techniques as a reasonable, nonviolent response to bullying and some even host Gracie Bullyproof classes on campus! The bottom line is: we will prepare your child to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.We will teach them to fight fire with water.
Been coming here for over 7 years; started bringing our daughter when she was 3 due to being bullied in daycare. After about 3 weeks with Master Erik, the bullying stopped! Since then, she's loved the sport, loves the school & instructors. She looked like she was having so much fun, me and my wife joined her 3 years ago and now we all are members having a blast in class moving up the ranks and compete together on ECMA's AAU TKD Competition Team. Winning gold medals together at tournaments and competing in The AAU National Championships last year and seeing our little Warrior Princess get her Black Belt was like nothing we've ever experienced. We love our ECMA family...ECMA ROCKS!
The facilities in Annapolis are great, including regularly cleaned bathrooms, the two training floors are divided into three areas that allow us to have three different classes going on at the same time. In addition, there is a great seating area for spectators to watch.
If you are looking for a school to start or continue training in martial arts, come check out ECMA! You will not be disappointed!
Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women. In this 10-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. Each one-hour Women Empowered lesson addresses two techniques. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women Empowered program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. Once you complete the Women Empowered program, you may test for promotion to Pink Belt!
