Do you know what's Bullyproof Chess?

Hi Everyone!

Here is an interesting article combining chess with personality development and improving confidence in young people.

Bullyproof is a way to help kids, ages 5-12, make the right moves when faced with a bully.

Rener Gracie based the program on techniques and strategies of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu which is called “the soft art” because it is like a physical chess match. No punching or kicking. Like chess, the opponents must have many moves and countermoves, strategies and gambits in mind. In both chess and Bullyproof kids learn that they have to remain focused, use critical thinking, be patient and not make rash decisions in order to come out on top. Both chess and Bullyproof teach kids to think before you make a move.

You can read the full article and watch a nice video here.
