Under the Cobra Self Defence banner and using his knowledge of the law Andrew
Morrell has developed the 'Bully Aware' programme for member clubs to use.
Unlike other ‘anti bullying’ programmes ours has been written to focus on
educating children to identify the 2 aspects of this horrible situation and to both
speak out to teachers, parents and also to support the victim. We don’t believe we
can ever stop it but education can help to prevent it.
The 2 aspects the programme focuses on are verbal and physical. The facts that
are missed by many with both aspects are that in adults both are crimes! Verbal
bullying is harassment, physical bullying is assault - even worse and dependant on
the reason for the bullying it could even be considered as a hate crime!
We also look at school rules relating to no fighting reiterating that this is absolutely correct. However everyone has the
right to defend themselves in law and our programme focuses on that too. Fighting by definition is 2 people trying to
hurt each other, self defence (a right under common law) is one person trying to hurt another and the other stopping them.
