Somersworth UFC Fighter Devin Powell Talks About Helping Kids Deal With Bullying
There's no way I could last 10 minutes in The Octogon® with UFC Fighter Devin Powell (not even 10 seconds) but Sarah and I interviewed him for that amount of time and it flew by faster than my reverse choke hold tap out.
Around 8 minutes into the full interview, Mr. Powell expresses his clever theory on how to prevent bullying. Learning martial arts gives the bullied child a sense of confidence and THAT prevents further harassment. The kids are trained to use these fighting methods ONLY as a last resort.
Devin will be taking on Alvaro Herrera this Saturday in Calgary.
You'll be able to watch him on UFC on Fox as part of a 13 Match Card.
This video is exactly the context I was looking for as it really doesn't appear that much pressure is being applied to our respective necks and/or throats. Let me make this as clear as possible, THERE IS A TON OF PRESSURE BEING APPLIED.
Seriously, I'd have paid a billion million dollars for him to let me out of that choke and it only lasted a half second.
