Has anyone ever caused you problems at school? Have you ever nearly come to blows? Have you ever fought in school? If you want to emerge victorious from a fight, whether at school or elsewhere, you have to show bravery.


Part 1 of 3: start the fight

Win Fights at School Step 1

Step 1. Let your opponent start the fight

People will blame you for being the first to attack. However, there is nothing wrong with defending yourself, especially in case your opponent threatens your life. Watch out for any signs of aggression or possible attack.

Step 2. Draw attention to yourself

If you want to avoid the fight, shout “Help! As loud as you can. You can also ask for help from any school staff closest to you. Escaping combat is also an option, but be aware that many people might view this behavior as cowardice. Only run away if it's to save your life.

Step 3. Know when it's best to quit

If your opponent refuses to give you the first punch, give up. Starting a fight will only cause problems and put your life in danger. Beating yourself up in school can cost you punishment, suspension, transfer to another institution, or permanent expulsion. Doing so could mar your academic record and jeopardize your potential chances of getting accepted into college or finding a job.

Step 1. Adopt a perfectly balanced posture

Spread your feet apart and keep your wrists above the eyes and in front of the face. If the person is punching you directly with the back arm, move your hands towards your ears and protect your face with your elbows.

Step 8. Stay calm if it is more than one person

Understand that your goal is to escape and not necessarily to win the fight. Against more than one person, the chances of you getting away with it without someone's help are slim. Avoid showing your anger. During any fight, use your rage as your energy to defeat your enemies.

  • Don't hesitate to ask for help if the situation calls for it. Sure, your reputation might take a hit, but damaging your social status is even better than losing your life.
  • Beware of the temptation of pride. You can convince yourself that you can defeat many enemies, but be realistic.

Step 1. Beware of opponents taller than you

Step 2. Beware if he threatens your life or tries to strangle you

Hit the person with all your might. Nudge, kick or kick pressure points or sensitive areas. Continue with this tactic until your opponent is weak enough for you to escape. Remember, you have the right to stand up for yourself if someone threatens your life. Go see the authorities as soon as possible.

Step 3. Flee if you have multiple opponents

Run as fast as you can towards a crowd or towards the main school office. While you may be tempted to defeat multiple opponents for glory, understand that it's best to be realistic. A person who fights against many enemies cannot win such a fight without being badly injured or without killing himself.

  • You can still lose a fight, even if you are taller. In this case, your opponent will be more agile and faster than you, and he will have a lot to prove.
  • Don't underestimate never a kick in the groin. There are no rules in street fighting.
  • Don't try never katas or other escape techniques that you learned in martial arts lessons, unless you are very experienced.

  • It is very likely that you will make enemies.
  • If you go very far in a fight, you could be charged with serious crimes.
  • If you fight in school, you could be suspended.
