    lol - Little skinny kid needs to learn that to be a good bully you pick on those smaller than you.

    Great to see the other kid fight back... zero tolerence policies suck, no way he should have been suspended.

    Was this in Australia? ... I dunno, stories around these things always mean that you never know what the truth is (after its done 30 mins on db and YouTube, there's probably about 16 different back stories for it.

    That being said, little kid ate a bowl of **** ... I love it!

    Saw this earlier today.

    It would have been even better if the second kid that stepped in got his ass kicked also.

    Damn, you beat me to it!

    Yeah, in Australia, NSW, I believe.

    Also, this amazing image, he's been called the 'Zangief Kid' on some of the sites.

    Amazing stuff!

    But also the anti-violence, *****-pro-bully pacifists in the comments is usually pretty fucked. As someone that was bullied a lot of my Primary and Highschool life until snapping and knocking one of the kids out, I know what it's like to be tormented everyday. Passivity is the food a bully [not to be mistaken with 'Bullshido - Bullies'] feeds on.

    Miyagi: Feeling correct.

    Daniel: You sure know how to make a guy feel confident.

    Miyagi: You trust the quality of what you know, not quantity.

    According to the Sydney Morning Herald: "A slightly-built 12-year-old Year 7 student antagonises a larger 16-year-old boy from Year 10, punching him in the face as a friend records it on his mobile phone and at least four other students watch." Apparently the kid's been bullied quite a bit.

    I'm not sure I'm quite ready to celebrate this one. I can't stand bullies, and I normally advocate a swift and brutal response. I've publicly defended martial arts and MMA in our newspapers.

    But this kid was very small, and no threat whatsoever. I understand the big kid's frustration, particularly if he's been picked on before. But it could've ended very, very badly. (Like brain damage or paralysis badly.)

    Thankfully it didn't, and hopefully the little nutcase learns his lesson.

    You'r right he was no threat, especially when he was PUNCHING THE OTHER KID IN THE FACE MULTIPLE TIMES!

    You know, apart from that, no threat.

    So he should have done what? not fight back?

    The little kid was lucky he got slammed only once and the big kid did not decide to carry on beating him. He stood up for himself and showed great control in backing off after he saw the guy was no longer a threat.

    I honestly don't think Year 7 punches are much of a threat to a large teenager. Hell, they're not much of a threat to other Year 7s.

    But for the sake of argument, let's assume you're right. I'm still not going to celebrate body slams on concrete for dumb kids barely out of primary school. Push him away. Punch him back. Hell, force him to the ground and sit on him. But not the slam.

    This is why we have Judo: high amplitude throws are srs biznss.

    See above.

    By the way, I agree on the backing off. It showed restraint.

    I think he meant no threat as in “no risk of injury,” not “no intent to injure.” My own history with bullies is such that my initial reaction was to wonder why the larger kid was labeled a bully when he wasn't doing anything. Every bully I ever had, minus one racist in 7th grade (who I think might've had legitimate psychological issues), was a taller fat kid who put weight behind punches.
