Another video showed a student kneeling in front of the athlete while being told to say that he’s stupid and even asked him to kiss his foot.
Martial arts should be used as form of defence and he used this to 4 students. Is this something that we need to tolerate? He made his schoolmate kneeled and ask him to tell everyone Sabihin mo BOBO ka(tell everyone you're stupid) hes a bully period. #JoaquinMontes #NoToBullying pic.twitter.com/j56R64hcBG

The third video was the worst as he repeatedly kicked and punched another student in the face. This resulted to the latter having a bloody face after the taekwondo athlete was done beating him.
As multiple uploads of the videos have gone viral, Ateneo de Manila University has released a statement, signed by principal Jose Antonio Salvador, saying that they are aware of the content that has been going around social media.
“The Ateneo Junior High School is dealing with this matter seriously beginning with an immediate investigation that ensued the moment the report reached us.
“We express our concern about the risks associated with sharing the video, online and in social media groups.”
Read and share the official statement of the AJHS Principal on the Fighting Video .
It also stated that the privacy of the students have been breached and it has also “provoked” uncalled for reactions.
“May we appeal however to the rest to help in putting a stop to the indiscriminate spreading of the video.”
Viral videos solicit reactions from netizens
as much as the parents are to blame for their son's behavior,
the school should be held accountable because these incidents all happened inside their school. 3 times na documented yung pambubully and now that its gone viral, ngayon lang kayo maginvestigate?! #ateneo #bully

I once visited ateneo for a tournament in taekwondo, and won my third gold medal. I even fought with a atenean in my last round… he and his teammates seems nice and very disciplined. Did they changed their coach for him to bully anyone????

beyond imposing punitive sanctions on the bully/criminal, i hope ateneo immediately contacts the students who were bullied and their families.
those students need counseling and their families require proper assistance so they and their children can cope with such an atrocity.

So I just watched the video of ateneo bullying incident and it really pisses me off. And i just read in some posts that he(the bully) does Taek Kwan Do and it's obvious that he uses sport to harm people.

Joaquin Montes the bully in the said video has the same attitude with his older brother Diego as stated by a netizen in the 2nd photo. I hope Ateneo will give him the right taste of his own medicine.
