THE BULLYPROOF PROJECT

PREVENT • DEFEND • ENCOURAGE

The Bullyproof Project, led by Chiroprocator and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 2nd degree Black Belt Dr. Mark Zuber, is a nationally recognized leadership and self-defense program that prepares both parents and kids to address and contend with the growing epidemic of bullying.

The goal of the Bullyproof Project is to inspire school-age kids to prevent the harassment of bullies, defend their classmates who are being victimized and to encourage themselves and their peers to improve their feelings of self-worth.

The Bullyproof Project encourages good citizenship, enhances self-esteem, and aims to eliminate the common effects of bullying such as low self-esteem, poor academic performance, suicide, and most unfortunately–homicide.

The Bullyproof Project teaches:

  • Recognizing warning signs of bullying
  • Avoiding conflict
  • Preventing physical altercations
  • Speaking out for oneself and peers
  • Diffusing encounters
  • De-escalating conflict safely and without injury
  • Building self-esteem and confidence
  • Encouraging peer support and inclusion

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Dr. Zuber first developed his bullyproof curriculum in 2015 when he saw the need to help school-age children deal with the increasing problem of bullying. He has presented this program to multiple DFW-area schools and churches. He has since expanded to offer the Self Defender Seminar, teaching adults about precautions and strategies for personal safety and physical techniques for warding off an attack.

Dr. Zuber has over 20 years of cumulative martial arts experience including 15 years in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with 9 years as a black belt and instructor. Over the years, Dr. Zuber has trained with many law enforcement officers, local and federal as well as military personnel.

He is passionate about helping others, especially those who are in disadvantaged situations and as a result find themselves being targeted for violence or intimidation. Dr. Zuber and his co-instructors (often local law enforcement and other martial arts instructors), donate their time to present the Bullyproof Project and the Self Defender Seminar as their way of making a positive impact on our community.
