Bully Busting 101-Redirecting behavior with words
From the Verbal Judo Institute
REPRESENTATION: We all belong to church, school and other groups like our martial arts school, in addition to being part of a family. How you act can directly affect how you represent your group. Your parents feel responsibile for your behavior. Your group's reputation is affected by how you act........... As a martial artist, your karate school and the rest of the students' reputation are affected by the way you act. You need to represent the best of who you are to the world no matter where you are...................... At Elite Martial Arts we focus a portion of almost every class on character development. We work on things like integrity and self-discipline. Always ask yourself "am I acting like a Black Belt"? This is your very first step in bully busting. *

DON'T LET ANGER CONTROL YOU: We mention in class that the first one to get angry is most likely the one to lose the fight. This goes for verbal sparring as well as physical sparring. You will be far more successful in a fight if you don't let your emotions take control...................... Having self-control is the first step to being in control with others and the situation. *

ANGER GUARDS: The path to strength is recognizing your weakness. We all have "trigger points" that make us angry. We need to identify these trigger points so we can learn to control them.................... In a state of anger you cannot control yourself or the situation. We need to identify those things that really make us angry and put an anger guard on our emotions. *

Write down 3 trigger points that really make you angry when someone says them to you.......... EXAMPLE: Someone says to you: "You are ugly"! *
MUSHIN: This is an Asian philosophy that means you must keep a cool head in all situations. You stay balanced. You do the right thing and do not over react. Bullies like to find our "trigger points" and attack them....................... No different in sparring. Your opponent tries to find an opening and attack it. You, in turn, have to learn how to block the attack............. No difference in verbal sparring. If we don't learn to block the verbal attack, then the strike will hit its target. When that happens, the bully will continue to go after that opening until you learn to block it.................. MUSHIN also means to have confidence in yourself. This is displayed in your body posture as well as the way you talk. *
