This article entitled "Aikido helps boy deflect bullying" reports on how aikido helped 10-year-old Lucas Gribble in Auckland, New Zealand, deal with bullying.

From the article: "What aikido teaches them is to centre themselves, focus on their bodies and to be grounded. [...] We teach them to respond positively to people and emotionally charged situations, rather than responding with aggression."
