    Ghost,

    I found you post about never being bullied very interesting.If you were to teach someone to be like that, how would you go about it? Do you think it has to be an intrinsic aspect of a person's character, or can it be developed?

    I don't want to bring up the dreaded "street vs. sport" debate. Again. But would you steer someone towars comabtive athletcs, avaoiding "RBSD" type material; or would it be the contrary with lots of scenario based stuff, roles plays and so on?

      Brain Scans Show Bullies Enjoy Others' Pain
      By Kevin McKeever
      HealthDay


      FRIDAY, Nov. 7 (HealthDay News)—Bullies may actually enjoy the pain they cause others, a new study using brain scans suggests.

      The part of the brain associated with reward lights up when an aggressive teen watches a video of someone hurting another person, but not when a non-aggressive youth watches the same clip, according to the University of Chicago study, published in the current Biological Psychology.

      "Aggressive adolescents showed a specific and very strong activation of the amygdala and ventral striatum (an area that responds to feeling rewarded) when watching pain inflicted on others, which suggested that they enjoyed watching pain," researcher Jean Decety, a professor in psychology and psychiatry at the University of Chicago, said in a university news release.

      "Unlike the control group, the youth with conduct disorder did not activate the area of the brain involved in self-regulation (the medial prefrontal cortex and the temporoparietal junction)."

      The study compared eight 16- to 18-year-old boys with an aggressive conduct disorder to a group that didn't show unusual signs of aggression. The boys with the conduct disorder had exhibited disruptive behavior such as starting a fight, using a weapon or stealing after confronting a victim.

      All participants underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) while watching videos in which people endured pain accidentally, such as when a heavy bowl was dropped on their hands, and intentionally, such as when a person stepped on another's foot.

              I started martial arts because I was a bully who got bored of the same old belly-to-belly suplex and kick to the throat. I wanted to know even more ways of hurting other people. What really surprised me was that martial arts helped me see the error of my ways and also helped me redirect all the pent-up aggression I used to have. This may sound cliche, but martial arts helped me find inner peace.

                Good for you man. I hope others can be inspired by your newly found inner peace.

                    I was bullied in Junior High (Middle School) but only because people found out I was doing martial arts (TKD).
                    These guys would walk by me and punch me in the stomach or get in my face and say "You think your tough? come on!", etc...

                    Over summer vacation between 8th and 9th grade, I was working as a lifeguard at our neighborhood swimming pool and one of the guys, (he actually lived a couple of blocks from me, but never bothered me except at school when he was with his friends) confronted me while I was taking a break and swimming in the pool.

                    He swam up from behind me and got me in a bear hug and started dunking me under the water, he did it about 10-15 times, I was starting to get scared and finally he let go of me and started laughing at me. One of my friends came over and asked me if I was okay, I said "Yes" and swam to the edge and got out of the pool.

                    Mind you I was small for my age, I didn't get my growth spurt until after I graduated from High School. I was only 5' 5" and maybe 120 lbs. at the time, I'm 6' 2" 205 now.

                    So anyway, because I was much smaller than they were they thrived on picking on me. A couple of minutes later I dried off and started to leave the pool to head home. I was stopped by this guy and 2 of his friends outside the gate of the pool and received the usual "Think your tough", etc... taunts.

                    As I walked away I said something to the effect of "I don't have to be tough to kick your ass.", which I wasn't sure how he/they would react, but I said it anyway.

                    His two friends start saying "Are you gonna let him talk to you like that??", so he runs up behind me and tackles me and starts hitting me in the back of the head. I ended up just taking it and left laughing with his friends.

                    I wasn't much of a fighter and didn't like to fight cause I wasn't much on confrontation. The only person I never minded fighting was my older brother, because I knew he would stop when I screamed/cried/begged, but I was afraid to fight anyone else because I thought they would just keep attacking me until I was dead.

                    Anyway, a couple of months later I was at school and it was still common talk that I got my ass kicked by this guy. So while I was walking down the hallway, this guy and his buddies were coming from the other end towards me. I knew the "Confrontation" was coming and I could feel the lump growing in my throat, I really wanted to duck into the nearest classroom, but for some reason decided to keep walking.

                    Once I reached them I tried to walk out and around them, but Mark (this was the guys name) skirted one of his friends and slammed me into a locker, started laughing and walked on by.

                    Then something happened, I don't know how to explain it but it just did. I just attacked him, tackled him and started ponding his head into the tile floor. I must have done it quite a few times because when the teachers pulled me off of him he had a nice gash in the back of his head and blood was everywhere.

                    Needless to say, I was suspended from school and never got picked on by him or his friends again. I actually ran into one of the guys many years later at a mutual friends party and he was like "Hey, how have you been I haven't seen you in forever, etc..", I was thinking..."I would love to kick your ass!"

                    Nowadays, I choose to walk away, simply because I am more confident in my abilities and not so concerned with proving myself, although I sometimes feel much smaller than I really am. I know I could hurt someone, just as much as they could hurt me, so I prefer just to avoid trouble. I take out my rage in the ring and in training.
                    Bullies get promoted. Would be victims get fired, susp, or shunned. Life is not fair. Keep training... if for no other reason that you are in great shape and good health

                      Big surprise: Guys who looked like they'd be easy. They weren't talking tough. 3/4 your size and you ended up getting schooled. You learned respect?

                        I started boxing when I was about 11. Kids were mean and I looked easy. I guess what got me to decide on boxing is when a kid 100 lbs put a huge thumping on a guy who was actually a bully and about 140. Little kid was a boxer with just a year of training.

                        So I found a good club, great coaches, and trained like a beast... wasn't tough so worked on skill. F-fw'd: I have had spoiled the agendas of a few bullies. I still work the heavy bag 2 x a week. I am a retired baby boomer, so yeah
