June 24th – 28th, Vista: A Journey of Confidence, Skills, and Fun Awaits!

Dear Parents,
In today’s fast-paced world, the challenge of bullying continues to loom large, casting a shadow over the lives of countless children from all walks of life. The fear, insecurity, and reluctance to go to school it causes can significantly dampen your child’s spirit and confidence.

Imagine this: Your child is cornered by a bully, their heart racing, mind flooded with fear, uncertain of how to react. The ripple effects of such encounters can be profound, impacting not just their present but their outlook on life, academic achievements, and ability to form healthy social bonds. Without the right tools and support, this cycle of fear and vulnerability can persist, leaving lasting scars.

​But, what if there was a solution?

​Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Vista is proud to present the Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp from June 24th to 28th, 2024. This isn’t just any camp; it’s a transformative experience designed to arm your child with unshakable confidence and the skills to protect themselves. Through engaging activities that meld character development with physical fitness, our certified instructors are dedicated to fostering an environment where every child can learn, grow, and emerge stronger.

June 24th-28th: Transform Your Child’s Fear into Strength at Gracie Bullyproof Summer Camp in Vista!

  • Unshakable Confidence with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu: Bullies target children who don’t stand up for themselves. By giving your child the non-violent Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques to neutralize a physical attack, they will have the confidence to take a stand against bullies before the harassment spirals out of control.
  • Verbal Self-defense Training: Verbal harassment is more common, and often times more damaging, than physical harassment. To ensure your child is ready to identify and overcome these inevitable attacks, we conduct a series of specific role-playing exercises each day of the camp.
  • Fun & Fitness for All Ages: Kids don’t like to exercise, but they love to have fun. Each morning we begin with the “animal warm-up,” and throughout the day we play several other games designed to give your child the exercise they need and the fun they want!
  • Character Development & Drug Defense: The connection we develop with the camp participants is strong, and we use this connection to instill the life lessons that every child needs. Each day we choose a different topic, from discipline and healthy living to drug defense and abduction prevention, so your child is ready for life beyond the playground.

Locksley has created something special at Gracie Jiu Jitsu Vista. My son trains here and loves it. Locksley really has a gift when it comes to dealing with kids. Some bjj academies can be too strict (which saps the fun out of the experience) or too loose (which can result in injuries), but Locksley’s approach is just right. He has complete control of the room, yet all the kids are having a great time. The classes are fast paced, and he mixes life lessons with lots of fun (the kids go nuts for dodgeball). Lockley seems to have even more energy than the kids as he’s always pouncing around, playing tag, and rolling with the kids. He is very clear when giving instructions, and communicates the techniques in memorable ways. I also appreciate his attention to detail when it comes to technique. When they’re rolling, you don’t see kids fumbling around for long stretches. Locksley or another instructor swoops in quickly to help.

I am so happy I found this place. From the moment I stepped through the door, I felt like I had found the community I was looking for to start my martial arts journey. I had heard so many things about Jiu Jitsu and went in with an open mind. The experience has far exceeded my expectations. Locksley is an excellent teacher and has cultivated an atmosphere of learning, care, and fun. I enjoyed my sessions so much that I had my two daughters (ages 9 and 11) try it out, and they have been every day since their first trial class. They can’t wait to go to Jiu Jitsu, and I feel the same way. As an educator, I am blown away by Locksley’s dexterous ability to teach younger and older folks. This place has quickly become my home gym, and I look forward to instruction and community for years to come. Thank you to all that make this place possible.

This is a great environment to begin one’s jujitsu journey. Very welcoming and great group of instructors that are knowledgeable, friendly, and understand how to communicate clearly. Prices are reasonable and class times work for those working the 8-5 workweek. Everyone is respectful and this is also a great way to make connections in the community. I will continue to practice here and I salut Locksley for all the efforts he and his team have put in to make this studio what it is. Sign up today and see you on the mats🙏🏼

Locksley is such a mindful, patient, and effective teacher. He goes out of his way to make sure everyone is not only surviving but thriving. Everyone is friendly and it’s nice to see other women joining all the time. Loving come to class 10/10 would recommend

I’ve been taking private lessons from Tate for a few months now. My first experience with Jiu Jitsu or any type of self defense has been fantastic. Tate is so kind and knowledgeable, and I really appreciate his style of teaching. He never makes me feel like, “You should know this already!” He is so patient and respectful, and he makes learning this new skill enjoyable.

I had no idea what Jiu Jitsu was prior to my first trial class, and I was nervous to come. Locksley and Tate welcomed me and made me feel right at home. They are both fantastic teachers, effectively explaining and modeling techniques in easy to understand ways. They make class fun and sometimes even funny! This is NOT an intimidating, aggro gym. Locksley and Tate facilitate an encouraging, respectful, and collaborative environment for all ages and abilities. One of their mottos, painted in large letters on the wall, is, “Keep it playful!” Bring a Certified Training Center, they also have organized, predictable curriculum that enables you to easily measure your progress and set goals for your growth. I highly recommend GJJV to everyone!

Gracie Vista has exceeded my expectations by far. The staff is friendly, motivating and organized! The facility is clean and classes are punctual. I’ve been able to retain each lesson so much more than other programs. I think this has a lot to do with the instructors experience and passion for Jiu Jitsu! Many thanks to Coach Locksley and Gracie Vista!
