Bully Tactics ; Slayers guide to Bullies
I have been asked to help with a bullying situation, to teach a girl and potentially a few other kids some basic 'self defense' vs bullies.
I have taught Brazillian Jiujitsu and Kickboxing and MMA before, but obviously we don't want to beat the crap out of a bully -the goal is to make the girl, and other kids, feel safe and confident enough to stand up to other kids, and know what to do when they do get into a fight.
I have some ideas on what should be in such a program, and I have discussed it with my instructor, but I would also like to hear from other teachers/trainers who teach a similar program or classes as to what they use?
I was thinking of teaching the girl similar to the Gracie Jiu Jitsu style of self defense; close to clinch on a punch etc. But in this thread I would love to see a discussion from other instructors on what they use and what they think is effective and why.
