Hi guys,

Great work guys, keep pushing this one, bullying is an issue that pops up from time to time then seems to get forgotten until the next videoed ‘fight’.

On the school bullying thing:

I run Aussie Ninja Kids here in Adelaide (4 clubs) and have come across schools that tell students that that cannot fight back (physically) when bullied!

Schools, I believe are trying to do their best in relation to bullying but when fighting is glorified in video games, cartoons, movies, sport and the internet media plus restrictions on discipline methods (I question the value of ‘don’t say no to kids’ and ‘kids should have more independence and rights’ (which is usually abused by kids that are still testing their boundaries), schools and parents are fighting a bit of a losing battle.

We have had some of our young students suffer bullying at school and when they have defended themselves (without causing serious harm) they have been punished. Schools need to realise that legally their ‘duty of care’ includes abiding by our countries laws regarding a person’s right to defend themselves.

See:

Description: Description: Legal Services Commission of South Australia    (www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au)

Self defence
A person is entitled to use such conduct as he or she genuinely believes is necessary for a 'defensive purpose' (that is, in self-defence or in
defence of another, or to prevent or end an unlawful imprisonment) under s 15 Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935. This will be a complete defence to an offence, including murder, as long as the force used was, in the circumstances as the defendant genuinely believed them to be, reasonably proportionate to the threat the defendant genuinely believed to exist . . .

Schools restricting this right (remember, kids interpret instructions like ‘don’t fight back’ literally) could surely invite legal action from a parent if a child is severely injured because the child was ‘restricted’ from exercising their right to defend themselves.

If these bullying attacks occurred out in the public the police would charge the offender with assault.

I would advise more parent to get the police involved, more parents of bullies would get the point if police rocked up on their door.

I don’t agree with physical punishment but kids must learn there are consequences to their actions.

Be aware:

CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY    (www.lawhandbook.sa.gov.au)
A child under the age of 10 years cannot be charged with a criminal offence [Young Offenders Act 1993 s 5]. Between the ages of 10 and 14 years there is a presumption that a child does not have the capacity to know right from wrong and so cannot form an intention to carry out a criminal act. This is known as the common law doctrine of doli incapax. However, this can be rebutted by evidence to the contrary, as was done in a case where a 12 year old boy was charged with murder and evidence was admitted showing that he had an appreciation of right and wrong R v. M (1977) 16 SASR 589.

A victim of a crime committed by a person (including a child) may apply for compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund for injuries suffered as a result of the crime. The Fund can then recover monies paid out to the victim from the offender, see criminal injuries compensation.

In relation to comments made by your listeners that doing a martial arts helps . . . just be careful of what type of martial art, for example MMA (mixed martial arts), boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, sporting arts (some taekwondo/Karate) and street fighting styles encourage beating the other person rather than avoiding getting hurt. Would you let your kids train with a group like the ‘Cobra Kai’ from the original Karate Kid???

When checking out an art watch a class, if they line up facing each other, adopt a fighting stance, teach the new students to kick/punch before evading and promote aggression or the club is proud of their tournament wins then it is a sport orientated group.

Great if sport is what you want to do but this type of training is aggressive in nature and can lead to your child getting in trouble for responding in a way that was ‘unreasonably disproportionate to the threat’. 

Our martial are is not sport orientated, we don’t enter tournaments to win over others and don’t promote a ‘fighting’ or an aggressive ‘ready’ stance.

Genuine Ninjutsu is evasive in nature, opting for self-protection and if need be controlling the attacker first before escalating to hurting anyone, to us aggression and violence is a sign of weakness.

We focus the initial training on break falls (not getting hurt when falling or being thrown), evading punches and evading kicks and escaping grabs etc plus the cultural values aspect of traditional Japanese martial arts.

Our belief is that the person that ‘wins’ a fight is the one that doesn’t get hurt . . . not the one who ‘beats’ the other.  

Just my thoughts on bullying.

Kind regards,

Sosai Gary
