Even a tiny wasp can put a grown man to flight and any resistance from someone a bully has targeted gets very old, very quickly to the bully. Now, you may have to take a licking, but you can get in a few wasp stings of your own if you are mentally prepared to resist.
Another strategy that I actually saw work, but don't recommend is to go on the offensive against a bully and seek them out to "sting" them. I saw this in the 10th grade and the third time the bullying victim sought out and openly provoked the bully who had attacked him two days before, the bully called a truce. It got old very quickly and he rightly surmised the victim would continue to confront him in front of everyone.
Another thing is bullying in the workplace, at the gym, in organized sports, social circles, etc. goes on and will go on all your life. Some of it is subtle, some is outright physical, so prepare yourself and your children to deal with it. The sooner, the better.
