The school says they don't recommend students to intervene but say it was refreshing to see a student take a stand against violence while many would have chosen to stand and watch.

"It made me feel special because no one ever nominated me for anything," says Martin. "I wasn't expecting it. I broke up a fight and I've broken up plenty of other fights."

Martin is very serious about his appearance and wears a tie to school every day.
