Rattling the Cage Partners with HIBster and HIBhub Anti-Bullying Program

Thursday, April 19th, 2012 by Tony Reid

I recently had the honor of partnering with Pitt Bull Secure Technologies, a great software company that recently created the first of it’s kind Anti-Bullying software to assist educators and schools in the reporting process of bullying incidents. HIBster is the first anti-bullying software program that specializes in both incident management and bullying prevention. This user-friendly tool offers schools a chance to meet the requirements of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) while saving hours every day and money in school budgets. Depending on the size of the school district, there could be hundreds or even thousands of incidents per month to report.

Pittbull also created a first of it’s kind tool in HIBhub, which is a place where victims of bullying may reach out for support from caring individuals. Such individuals include other students, volunteers, and professional counselors who are available to talk, listen, and offer their advice. The community is completely anonymous so that everyone can feel secure and free to express themselves without anxiety. Students may discuss particular incidents, ask questions about bullying, seek advice on how they should handle a situation, or educate themselves with plenty of reading material.

This is where I come in…The great people at Pittbull asked me to facilitate interviews with members of the MMA Community. How cool would it be to hear from guys that beat people up for a living talk about the importance of not being a bully? I was more than happy to reach out to everyone I know and get them to talk about such an important subject. Jill Strutt at Pittbull did a great job with the interviews and the first fighter she spoke to about the bullying epidemic was Tyron Woodley. Read the full interview here…
