Schoolyard bully gets FREE JUDO LESSON after picking on the wrong kid

Wednesday, May 02, 2018

Dealing with bullies and bullying is an unfortunate part of growing up for many kids out there. Although bullying can certainly occur in adulthood too, it usually tends to be much more subtle and ‘social’ in nature.

However, learning how to deal with bullies as a kid can sometimes be a good thing too long-term as it teaches you how to deal with difficult people and situations and lets you know that not everyone is going to like you or treat you well in life. Also, it leads many kids towards martial arts and a few of the greatest ever MMA fighters were bullied as children such as GSP and Anderson Silva.

In this video, we see an example of a kid using the martial art of judo to deal with an aggressive bully who gets physical with him first.

The aggressive schoolyard bully first uses verbal threats towards the nerdy-looking kid, who is clearly minding his own business. Then, the aggressive kid gets physical by grabbing his throat.

The kid with the glasses keeps his cool, however, and calmly removes the kid’s hand around his neck then hits an excellent judo toss sending his aggressor hurling to the ground in embarrassing fashion.

Compared to other martial arts, grappling-based arts like Judo, BJJ, and wrestling are excellent choices for kids because they don’t have to get hit and sustain head damage to get better and excel in that art.

Check it out in the video below.

Judo (柔道 jūdō, meaning “gentle way”) was created as a physical, mental and moral pedagogy in Japan, in 1882, by Jigoro Kano (嘉納治五郎). It is generally categorized as a modern martial art which later evolved into a combat and Olympic sport. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the objective is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue an opponent with a pin, or force an opponent to submit with a joint lock or a choke. Strikes and thrusts by hands and feet as well as weapons defenses are a part of judo, but only in pre-arranged forms (kata, 形) and are not allowed in judo competition or free practice (randori, 乱取り). A judo practitioner is called a judoka. [Source: Wiki]
