4H Lesson, 13 April 2013


- Learned the lyrics to "Good Time", a 2012 single by artists Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen.

- Today's lesson was about self-defense. For today's lesson, we had someone who works in the security field and is also an martial arts expert present for commentary.

- Watched a short, humorous film about differences between the martial arts portrayed in movies and real life. Reality is often much more ugly.

- Started to read and translate a poem, "The Winner" by Shel Silverstein. In this poem, a 'winner' recounts his cumulative injuries, which are spoils of his victories. Unfortunately, the children lost interest in this activity, so we moved on before finishing.

- The main idea thus far: fighting is dangerous! Told the children that in most cases, avoiding risky situations, talking things out, or running take precedence over fighting in self-defense situations.

- Discussed the concept of avoiding dangerous situations. Talked about a lens through which people often viewed the world, called "magical thinking".

- Gave examples of magical thinking; for instance, a young woman who goes to a party and passes out drunk thinking that she will not be molested, an older person who continues to cross a parking lot to his car late at night after a group of young ruffians has began paying undue attention to him, myself going clubbing with white girls in Ulaanbaatar thinking that we will not be harassed, or the idea that you can be a "tough guy" who gets into fights and not have injuries accumulate.

- Encouraged the children not to view the world through the lens of "magical thinking", after which avoiding dangerous situations becomes easier.

- Moved on to the concept of protecting oneself by talking. On one end, talking often takes the form of instructions, for example, "Give me your wallet or I'll blow your head off," or "Shut up or I'll kick your ass." But it's not always like that. Encouraged the children that when talking out their differences, to 1.) Not insult or challenge the other person and 2.) To give him or her a face-saving exit.

- Watched a humorous short video, titled "Realistic Fighting Game." In this video, two young men get into a fight at a bar over spilled beer. We saw that fighting often looked stupid. Reviewed the video again, and identified the parts where the situation escalated through insults and challenges, and how neither side provided the other with a face-saving exit (for instance, by offering to replace the spilled beer).

- Told the children that, when talking things through, one of the top pre-attack indicators usually included yourself being an asshole. This state usually results from getting one's feelings or pride hurt. Told the children that this was like letting your "monkey brain" take charge, and discouraged them from entering that state. (The children had no idea what I was talking about.)

- We moved on from discussing avoiding and talking as two means of self-defense. Showed the children a clip of two young men ready to fight -- but suddenly, one of the two turns and hightails it out of there. Our guest commentator described the man's behavior as "correct".

- We translated a short comic that depicted various styles of martial arts, with a short description next to each one.  For instance, judo was the martial art of grappling, while muay thai was the martial art of striking and clinching. Parkour, meanwhile, was the martial art of running away.

- Regarding running, I offered the viewpoint of not running from danger, but rather of running towards safety. I also told the students that running effectively may require a different mindset than they were used to, and encouraged them to use their lizard brains (which cares for survival, and does not care about pride, ego, or anything of that sort). The children had no clue what I was talking about.

- Thus far, we had discussed avoiding, talking, and running. It was now time to cover fighting. We presented this aspect of self-defense as likely to be less important than the other three we had discussed earlier.

- Told the children that fights often carried harsh externalities; for instance: broken knuckles, hospital bills, jail time, and the other guys's brothers coming looking for you.

- Also told the children that the decision of whether to fight or not was theirs to make. There exists the saying, "violence never solves anything," but that was a sentiment that both myself and our guest disagreed with.

- Watched four video clips. After each video, asked our guest instructor for commentary. The videos were: from a self-defense instructional video by Bas Rutten (featuring weapons), from a self-defense course for kids against adults (which emphasized using your voice and running in addition to physical technique), from a fight on the streets in Las Vegas (in which a lot of people got sucker punched), and from a fight in a school (in which one child was beaten by several others).

- Saw that fighting was complicated, but for each video, we asked questions, pointed out mistakes, and discussed better possibilities.

- Throughout this lesson, the guest speaker also related other thoughts; for instance, stories from his youth when things were a little more rough, or the idea of having something more to live for (such as family) to keep you out of fights.

- Summarized the lesson as follows. Regarding self-defense: Avoid - Talk - Run > Fight.

- Took a break. The children watched an episode of Adventure Time.

- After break, learned the lyrics to Katy Perry's 2010 song, "Firework".

- Saw a short video on cyber bullying. This prompted a short discussion led by Undarmaa teacher.

- Saw a short video on using your voice as an anti-bullying technique.

- Spent about ten minutes talking about rape. Gave a few good statistics -- most rapes are committed by someone the victim knows, and most rapes involve drugs or alcohol. Gave the students a rape situation. The situation did not take place in a dark alley with a stranger; rather, a girl had been drinking at a party and found herself making out with a guy in a private room... then decided, "hey, maybe this isn't such a good idea." Asked the students how they would diffuse this situation.

- Gave my opinion on each of the students' suggestions. Myself and Undarmaa teacher offered some opinions of our own. Concluded by telling the students to use their fox brain, which I think they understood.

- Listened (but did not review the lyrics) to Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwo'ole's rendition of "Somewhere over the Rainbow / What a Wonderful World".

- Finished by watching a little child's boxing demo video that was both cute and impressive.
