Karate World of Surfside Beach Begins “Bully Battle ’14”!

stop bullyingIn our quest to stamp out bullying, I think the best place to start is to define exactly what a bully is. Dictionary.com defines a bully as “a person who is habitually cruel or overbearing, especially to smaller or weaker people”.

Our next step is to identify the types of bullying that might occur. When I asked the kids in karate class, 3 main types were suggested:

  1. physical bullying
  2. verbal bullying
  3. cyber bullying


Over the next several weeks, we will be learning how to recognize and deal with each type of bully.

In the mean time, I highly recommend that parents and students check out StopBullying.gov . I have found a lot of useful information on that site.
