Author

Victoria Gracie is the author of the world's first ever jiu-jitsu children's picture book, Kip and the Magical Belt.  A former professional dancer, Victoria learned often that life has bullies of all ages and sizes, but boundaries and being creative in how you handled them was most important. She is an advocate for emotional intelligence, compassionate communication, and self-empowerment. Her hope is that families use this book as a tool to discuss difficult topics like bullying and boundary setting. It is her dream to help others find their best selves by first believing in their own magic.
