Let me state this first: I truly detest violence and I wish this world would be free of criminality and all sorts of pain, but unfortunately the sad truth is that there are disturbed people out there. Being able to defend yourself when it is needed is therefore really important. And since I honestly wish you will never encounter the scenerio of being physically attacked by someone, I will discuss the situation that happens more regularly in many people's lifes: the situation of one being verbally attacked without any reason. I believe the most important thing if you are a victim of either gossip, bullying or name calling is that you try to have a strong and confident attitude. This starts with your posture: keep your back straight and your head high. Then, try to remember that spreading rumours or bullying innocent people is usually the direct result of insecurity of someone. You have to realize yourself that there is nothing wrong with you, the attacker is the one to be blamed and he or she is the one who needs help. If you know who you are and what you are capable of (which is a lot, I am sure!), no one who does not mean anything to you can hurt you with words. You are like a tree: people could try to cut the branches, but they will not be able to hurt the deeply ingrained roots.
