East Coast Martial Arts Hosting Kids Self-Defense Class At Annapolis Town Center


As kids across Maryland prepare to head back to school, Annapolis Town Center will host an event to teach them how to stand up to bullies.

On September 30 from 9:00am–10:00am, the town center will host a kids self-defense class to help children develop confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect. The seminar is taught in partnership with East Coast Martial Arts and will teach the nationally renowned program Gracie Bullyproof.

Gracie Bullyproof is a kids jiu-jitsu program that teaches children the specific circumstances in which they can use self-defense techniques. The program focuses on teaching the five "rules of engagement" to ensure children understand responsible use of their skills.

"We understand that bullying can be a serious issue for kids, and we want to provide a safe and empowering environment where they can learn how to protect themselves," said Tommy Lee, owner of East Coast Martial Arts. "We're excited to partner with Annapolis Town Center to offer this class and equip kids with skills and boost their self-confidence."

The seminar will be held in the East Green Village and is open to kids ages 5-8. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children. Registration is required and can be done on the eventbrite website. Tickets are $5, and all proceeds will go to the Blue Ribbon Project.

This informative and interactive class will teach kids how to avoid dangerous situations, control their emotions and build self-esteem. The class will run for approximately one hour, and attendees should wear comfortable clothing.
