Hey everyone [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]
this is my first official post,
i know theres previous posts on this subject but i really need some help with it.

Well the problem is that theres this gang at my school,in my year(year 11)that consists of about 10-13 15-16 year olds.
At lunch time i usually go back to my classroom to sit with all my friends.
Theres at least 9 boys and 15 girls normally
from my class at lunch time in our room.
The problem has just began since the start of coming into year 11.
Nearly every day the gang comes to our classroom to victimise members of my class.
everyone is happy and fine and having a great time till they show up,
then everything goes quiet [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/eek.gif[/IMG]

They make themselves welcome,
they begin to gang up on my friends and throw chairs and tables around the room.
They throw the girls bags around,push people to the floor and kick them in.

It happens at least 3 out of 5 days a week,
the days it doesnt happen are the days everyone most looks forward to.

Im clever enough to realise that i cant take on a gang of 13 people, but put single me against any one of them one on one and i'l deliver, i can beat any one of them.

It angers me [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/mad.gif[/IMG] to have to watch my weaker friends being beat up and me not being able to help them.

Being the only person that can stand up to them, isnt all its cut out to be.
Im 6 foot tall 170 pounds,
16 years old and medium built.
Ive trained in tae-kwon-do and boxing for 2 years.
They havent targeted me and the few others who can stand up to them but like i said they prey on the weakest.

Its not a simple beating though,they leave my friends bloody and battered.
The teachers and headteacher do nothing to stop it.
A lot of the people in my class look away as if nothings going on.
I know alot of you are thinking dont stay in your class at lunch,
but theres no where else to go.
We dont see why we should have to leave our class just because of the way there playing.

Just this week a few other friends of mine who are not in my class were targeted on the way home.

What i need help with is just knowing what to do in this situation ?.
Should me and the others fight or should we just leave it how it is.
We would prefer to fight back but we dont want it to result in more people being targeted.

Im not the kind of person who likes to start fights, i only fight if theres no other way .
That being said though i am actually gd at fighting and have had my shares in the past.
The way i understand it is that if we get involved itl probably make things worse.
This is all fairly new,dating back from 3 weeks ago.

We havent tryed anything physical yet,
but we swear at them and keep our weaker friends near us to keep them from attacking them.

It seems to work but sometimes it doesnt if were unprepared for there arrival.

Id appreciate any help anyone has on this
Thanks Alot
