Bullying Victims Fight Back With Help From Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Royalty

If I had a son or daughter I would enroll them for sure. Cool story that appeals to many.

"If you draw that line with your words and the bully respects it, the case is closed without a physical altercation," Rener told Martin. "But if you draw that line and they slap you, kick you, cross that line again, you don't think twice. You take both of your hands and push him as hard as you can in the chest. You blast him. Knock him off his feet.

"Then take control using jiu-jitsu and tell him you will let him go if he promises not to bother you any longer. If he won't say it, wait until a teacher or another adult shows up before letting him up."

"Let them see that their words can cut you, and you'll never be free of the mockery. If they want to give you a name, take it, make it your own. Then they can't hurt you with it anymore." - Tyrion Lannister

I'd let my son or daughter (if i had) roll pretty early as well, i'm sure, and/or wrestling.

When the time comes I'm treaching my kids wrestling and telling them to use it the same way this kid did. There aren't that many kids who know how to wrestle let alone defend it. I don't want my kids to go through what I had to go through.

Ok I'm intrigue. Tell me Kanto what you have gone through? you're kind of an interesting personality so I'm actually curious. I mean you are a wrestler right? so I figure you could defend yourself?

Well before the 4th grade I wasn't wrestling so I still got bullied. Then there was a time that I believed that wrestling shouldn't be mis-used. Once I had mastered it I went through verbal bullying and I was always told never to use physical force.

Then on top of that in high school I had to put up with bullying within the wrestling team. Not to mention the immature dicks in college. So basically my life hasn't been easy.

I'm sorry to hear that Kanto. I know you've mentioned having kind of a social awkwardness on here before so I'm sure that makes it harder in school. I've never been bullied so I can't even imagine what it's like, must suck real bad.

I must admit at first when I joined the forum I had a problem with your writing-style, and you wern't my favourit poster so to say, but you've grown on me and I actually find you pretty interesting and enjoy your posts.

How old are you if I might ask?

I'm 23 now and graduated from college. Right now I'm helping to coach a high school wrestling team. When the time comes I want to teach my kids to use wrestling in this way.
