CMAA Bully Aware

Under the Cobra Self
Defence banner and using
his knowledge of the law
Andrew has developed the
'Bully Aware' programme.

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.

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 new programme
focuses on that too.

Fighting by definition is 2 people trying to hurt
each other at the same time, Self defence (a right
under Section 76 of the Criminal Justice &
Immigration Act 2008 Common Law Self
Defence) is one person trying to hurt another and
the other stopping them.
