Rules of Engagement

School Policies

• Most schools have implemented zero-tolerance bullying policies.

• These policies reduce the number of physical fights, but do not prevent verbal harassment.

• Verbal harassment is often more damaging than physical harassment.

The Three T-steps

Talk: Respectfully and confidently ask the bully to stop.

Tell: If the bully won’t stop, ask your teachers and parents to help.

Tackle: If the grownups can’t solve it, tackle the bully mentally with verbal Wing Chun, and then, if they become physically aggressive, tackle them physically with their Wing Chun.

Rules of Engagement

Rule 1: Avoid the fight at all costs.

Rule 2: If physically attacked, defend yourself.

Rule 3: If verbally attacked, follow the Three T-steps (talk, tell, tackle).

Rule 4: Never punch or kick the bully, establish control and negotiate.

Rule 5: When applying submissions use minimal force and negotiate.

The Critical Conversation

• Regardless of how the fight starts, you will go to the principal’s office.

• Following the Rules of Engagement will make it easier to explain your reaction to the bully’s aggression.

• Explain all the steps you took to get help and how they did not solve the problem.

• Explain how when the bully  attacked you, you purposely tried not to cause injury.

Violation of the Rules

• If you follow the Rules of Engagement, you will not get in trouble at home.

• If you violate the Rules of Engagement, at-home training must stop for a period of time.

• If you abuse your power, we will remove your name from the list of BULLYPROOF belt holders.

• Your confidence in the Rules of Engagement will reduce the likelihood of fights.
