Now i am definitely small for my age in the respect that their is no person in the year below me
that is shorter than me. This made me an obvious target for seniors to pick on me.
Well i didn't like that because i had a bit of pride so i decided to do something about it.
I would like to share that information with all of you.
The way people act towards bullying varies largely it's disgusting that people can turn a blind eye and even worse "Rockstar" games has developed a game called bully where you in a simulated environment beat up geeks and authority figures. This is the worst kind of game violence there is, it's not as gory as some, sure but the way it is portrayed......

Updated instructable please read
Step 1: Identifying a Bully
Attitude- if someone is very staunch and "im gonna get my way" about things this is an indicator
Actions-Obviously if someone goes around ruffing people up for fun they can't be a good guy.
Anger- If the person tends to get angry at small things and doesn't try to to talk about they are
under this classifications.
And remember don't act rash and lash out as soon as someone annoys you and be sure it's not yourself just overreacting and if any of the "A's" happen after you have provoked the person in any way stop and think why the hell did i do that there just gonna get mad
Step 2: Confidence and Physical Shape
is confidence, theres no use wanting to get someone and turning it over in your
head many times than not going through cos they intimidate you, well that is WACK!
And when i was first being bullied i was interested in martial arts
and that worked cos i found Tae-Kwon-Do and it helped me mentaly and physically.
Now i am not saying go and start a martial art it may not be your thing but it
worked for me. Which leads me to my next point, phyisical shape.
Well it seems a lot of people inadvertently overestimate themselves just imagining
a great punch to someplace like the nose or stomach, But it doesn't work that way
people block and dodge.
But saying this you don't have to be in great shape just reasonable.
I do sit ups, pushups and starjumps before bed and do more each time.
Through my routine i have earned myself a 6-pack as well but thats another i'ble

Step 3: Knowing When and Where to Strike
because then it will not just strike them physically but mentally too.
Now this is the fun bit, I taught myself many different ways of
dealing with bullies and one of my favorites is one of the many ways
i know how to bring people to the ground.
No1, The headlock-pull:
First get your arm around the subjects neck then get behind them and lift
yourself off the ground. This should "off" their balance so they fall back,
Cushion their fall so they don't hurt themselves on the ground
-we want to demonstrate control not hurt them- then put your foot
on their neck without pressure and say firmly- "DO NOT DO THAT AGAIN!"
Step 4: Staying in Control
sometimes the bully will get up and annoyed dwelling over his or her loss
and try to get you back. This is where you cause pain-With adequate warning-
There are what my friend call wristy twisties which i find to be very effective.
Heres the basics. When their hand is in attack grab it and quickly twist until their body makes a response, from there you can twist in small jolts further to cause pain.
Another simple one is the "double clap" i made this one when someone was giving me
crap about my height and generally roughing me up.
It is simply a clap around the stomach and back.
It just seems to work.
Pictured are pressure points. good for relieving stress, anxiety and causing Pain.
By the way all photos in this instructable are of me (apart from the flying side piercing kick)
Hope you pick me.
Step 5: Don't Become What You Hate So Much
the information for protection ONLY and don't become as bad as them.
Anyone can inadvertently slip into the "bully State" just watch out.
And more importantly.
Do not set yourself on fire.
Cheers thanks for reading my I'ble
Step 6: Avoiding a Fight.
and you could take lessons in the same way, but the easiest thing is to avoid
Now it may seem cheesy like you've heard it all before but there are some good ways
to avoid fights:
Talk it out- If you have no hope of winning a fight a good idea is to
talk with the bullies cronies as the bully most likely won't have any of it.
Friends- Most people hate bullies even people who are bigger than them
because there will always be someone bigger than you that also applies to the bully.
Heck you can even get big guys to teach you stuff about fighting and people older than you
usually like someone they can look after because it makes them feel wanted.
Hope this can help someone out there.
