A bully picks on someone who he/she thinks is weaker and by doing so makes themself feel better. Many have serious issues around self image or their own physical development. However, some people are just mean. True karate is hard and the commercial version that most instructors teach today is not real fighting. However, do what ever it takes to make your children feel good about themselves and they will have the ability to walk away or fight if there are no other options. Give the mom a break.
