San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) June 10, 2013
The Cyr Family Charitable Fund, a non-profit organization owned and operated by HealthCrave and OSI, will be partnering with Ryron Gracie, who is a black belt in Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, an effective self-defense technique invented by his grandfather. Gracie is co-creator of the Gracie Academy in Torrance, California, which offers an intense program that was designed to turn bullied children into “Bullyproof” defeaters. The Cyr Family focuses on giving back to the community by partnering with and supporting organizations that are dedicated to helping others. Their partnership with Ryron Gracie is a momentous step for school children in the San Antonio area who are picked on, degraded, and tormented at school.
For some children, the beginning of the school year is terrifying because it means returning to a horror zone where they must withstand their bullies. Ryron Gracie’s Bullyproofing program aims to help bullied kids get passed those fears by instilling them with the confidence and bravery that comes with knowing self-defense. The eldest grandson of Grand Master Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Ryron was introduced to the practice as soon as he could walk.
His father, Rorian Gracie, is the world’s foremost expert in self-defense. Rorian Gracie started by teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the family’s garage, where Ryron would watch as a child, and where he came to see the profound effect the skills had on those who studied and mastered them. His observations aided in his idea to open the Gracie Academy, so that bullied children across the country could learn how to fight back.
Though Ryron Gracie has a busy schedule at the Gracie Academy, he makes time to travel around the U.S and teach seminars. The inspiring teacher will be coming to San Antonio to conduct a seminar for the youth at Lenny Walls’ Walls Next Level Fitness Youth Olympics on July 14. The seminar will be instrumental in the lives of those who attend.
Not only should the seminar help children who are punched, kicked, and pushed while walking the halls at school, but can hopefully steer children away from being or becoming bullies when they see that real fighters, such as Ryron Gracie, don’t torment others. The Cyr Family Charitable Fund has done San Antonio’s youth a real service by partnering with Ryron Grace and making this seminar possible.
