Many times people say they are threatened by bullies and that makes sense. Bullies act outside the mutual agreement of politeness most people think they work with. So they allow the bully entry into their personal space or even to grab them and pull them off balance thinking it will all turn out fine. You choose what you do and you can use this mentality to your aid as well. If the bully puts a hand on your neck or shoulder and pushes you against a wall or pulls you toward a choke hold. He is giving you a lot of power you can use and a leverage point. A slight increase in speed will move out outside his range as he pushes you and you can run away (especially if his mates are in the reserve of the ego guard) if you are pushed against the wall you can slide down and slide his head into the wall as you go. Holding onto his belt or jewels will do the same as you simply drop to a sit down and you can make your own solution according to the simple principles here. Remember that there is always something worse. Unless we are talking about Brussel sprouts !!!
