Playground Patrol: Advocate Self Defense in the Sandbox?

My husband and I were at the park over the weekend watching our kids climb on a pirate ship structure when I overheard a couple of other parents chatting. Their daughter who looked to be about six or seven was complaining about a little boy bugging her. Her father said something about the other child being smaller and then advised, "Give him three warnings and then use martial arts." While it's clear that this daddy didn't want his daughter getting bullied, is it appropriate to advocate a physical solution...on a younger child? Some moms and pops tell their tots to steer clear of troublemakers and others ask that their wee ones try and resolve sandbox issues themselves before telling an adult. What advice do you give your child?
