8 Self Defence Tips For Secondary School Students

This advice may or may not work in your particular school. There are no guarantees. Just try out different ideas and see if they work for you. Discuss them with your parents.

  1. Look confident and happy even if you don't feel that way. Bullies tend to pick on anyone who looks frightened and miserable.

  2. If possible, learn a martial art which will make you feel more confident and which will teach you how to deal with a violent attacker. Practise your running skills so you can get way fast without falling over.

  3. Keep out of the way of bullies but avoid deserted areas of the school

  4. Don't react angrily if challenged by a bully. Youngsters love to see someone lose their cool. If you don't react in an aggressive way, they may look for another victim.

  5. But don't look anxious and frightened. Speak up for yourself clearly and definitely i.e. speak in an assertive way

  6. If someone tries to get you to do something you don't want to do, just don't do it. Say clearly that you won't do it. You don't have to please anyone by doing something you are not sure about
  7. Tell your parents and teachers about any incidents when some one has tried to frighten or hurt you. Write down the day and time of the incidents and the names of any one involved or who saw what happened.

  8. Don't expect trouble. Just believe and picture yourself having a really enjoyable day at school.You probably will.

There is no one solution and no one bullying situation. There are, for example, different types of bullying. Some bullies physically bully their victims. Some call them names which make the victim feel useless. Others make sure they are lonely and excluded from the company of other students. Others demand money and other favours. Some do all of the above. Each type of bullying needs to be taken into account.

Be aware that your child or student may either be a victim or a bully or neither. Know how to find out which. To solve a problem, you need to know that there is one. If you can see the problem clearly, you may well find that solutions are staring you in the face.
