This June 2010 photo provided by Lisa Suhay shows her son Quin Suhay, now 8, tackling Bill Odom, owner of Norfolk Karate Academy in Norfolk, Va., as part of a bullyproofing class that combines jujitsu _ defensive moves only, no punching or kicking _ with verbal strategies. Other types of bullyproofing programs, including guides for parents and regular classroom curricula, seek to make kids less vulnerable to being picked on by teaching them how to deal with teasing and how to make friends.
