The 5 Rules of Engagement for Bully Self Defense at Karate World

When learning to “battle bullies”, Karate World students must also learn the 5 rules of engagement as a guideline for properly dealing with possible altercations.

1.Avoid the fight at all cost!

2.If physically attacked, defend yourself.

3.If verbally attacked, use the 3 T steps (see my 3 previous blogs)

4.Never punch or kick the bully, establish control and negotiate.

5.When applying submissions, use minimal force and negotiate.

These rules serve as a reference to our kids on how to deal with various situations so that they can come out of whatever the ordeal may be as safely as possible, while inflicting little or no damage on their attacker (consequentially getting themselves into as little trouble as possible:) ).
