    Obviously a poor lesson to teach. Sometimes a man has to fight.

    Weren't you taught not to hit smaller boys and all girls? I was, and at some point they figure out that you won't. I have to say though, that I did make some exceptions and it was worth the punishment.

    Nope. I was taught when it was ok to fight. Size and gender doesn't matter when it comes to defense.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I cant believe that the kid gets suspended for defending himself. He didnt even hit the kid, he just stopped him from hitting him. If he walked away the kid would probably have followed, if he tells the teacher they tell the bully to stop and the second the teacher isnt there again he does it again. I hope the big kid's parents sue the school for not doing anything about the abuse their son was taking. We all know this isnt the first time the bully went after this kid, the more confident the bully got that the kid wouldnt retaliate the worse it probably got.

    I bet the bully learned more from that slam than he has all year at that school.

    Probably. When I was in second grade we had this kid who would trip everybody on the bus when they were getting on. For weeks it was going on and he got more and more bold about it. One day I was fed up with it, and decked him. He never did it again.

    I was going to a school in backwoods Florida at the time, and the Principal actually congratulated me for handling the issue. :D

    My father always told us that we were never to pick a fight but if someone picked one with us, we were to finish it. I'm not saying I won every fight but I'm telling you that if you were in a fight with me, you'd know it. See, I can handle myself pretty well, however, I make it a practice to fight dirty. To me, there's no such thing as a fair fight. You fight to win. Start screwing with me and I'll go for your kneecaps or balls or whatever else I can see as a weak point. Now, I'm trained in self defense and know at least 5 different points on your head that I can strike and incapacitate you rather quickly...and I use those whenever the situation presents itself.
