A girl got the best kind of revenge on a boy who was bullying her by showing him just how ready she was to defend herself (video below).
In the clip, the girl can be seen using several martial arts moves on the boy — who’d allegedly been cyber bullying her. The male student seems caught off guard by the girl’s retaliation, seemingly having no idea that she’s trained in martial arts and ready to fight back.
The girl was ultimately suspended over the fight, but the bully suffered a black eye as a result of the beating he took in front of his fellow classmates.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter Kit Dale got the girl’s permission to post the clip of the fight online, and it quickly went viral.
“I always encourage people to learn martial arts to one, have the confidence to walk away so it doesn’t affect you, but if it does and you don’t have anywhere to back away, sometimes you’re going to need that to protect yourself,” Dale said.
Many viewers praised the girl for using her martial arts training to defend herself against the bully.
“Heck yea. If that was my daughter, I’d back her 100% even if the school wanted to punish her. Then, I’d have a meeting with the staff and the boy’s parents,” one viewer commented on AWM America’s Facebook page.
Others criticized the fact that the girl was punished for defending herself against the bully.
“So the girl gets punished for standing up to a bully & the bully remains in class?! Teaches that you can get away with bullying and the victim gets punished for something that the bully started,” one viewer wrote.
“They should punish the bullies and not the victim who is just protecting themselves! That teacher should be fired! This is why bullies have the courage to bully others!” another added.
