Kung Fu Fighting

Art class was just awesome. Two of my boys had been continually provoking each other all morning, and one finally snapped just before noon. I'd kept on them with verbal redirections, but it didn't really work. Yeah.

One boy started throwing the punches halfway through 4th period. I jumped between them and got a nice fist to my left temple. I pushed the two apart and restrained the boy who had let out the first punch in a standing upper torso restraint until more staff arrived and helped me remove him from the class.

I love my job.
