From Bullied To Black Belt is the true sometimes harrowing, always emotional but in the end, triumphant story of a man's journey. Since a very early age author Simon Morrell was the victim of merciless bullying. His torment continued into his adulthood when the taunting became violent assault. At one point an attempted stabbing was made on him by a vicious youth hell bent on damaging Simon. After more beatings Simon eventually succumbed to agoraphobia and panic attacks and seemed destined to live the life of the meek, a man afraid to leave his house and not daring to expand past his small comfort zone. However, something within him refused to accept defeat and with the help of his wife, the mild mannered man embarked upon a journey in Martial Arts. His original goal was to try and find confidence but he surprised all around him by excelling. Simon became one of the U.K.'s leading Fight Masters obtaining 6th Dan Black Belt and twice being entered into the Hall of Fame. From Bullied To Black Belt whilst written by a Martial Artist is so much more than a book about Martial Arts. It is a story of a man finding himself when all seemed lost, it is a love story that may break your heart, it is a story that will leave you in tears but it is a story that will eventually leave you inspired. The film of the book is now in development in the United States, renamed Fight Back. Simon and From Bullied To Black Belt will tell readers that with courage, anything can be attained.

To Ramsey, bullying isn’t merely an international trend but an international health problem. People all over the world are being victimized, and few have the tools needed to fight back. But “fighting back” doesn’t mean giving a punch for a punch. It simply means finding peaceful ways to solve problems and resolve conflicts. Ramsey used his own background with bullies to create a three-step process that can keep you in control of a bad situation and help you diffuse it before it can become worse. -Amazon.com.
