Teenage boys are notorious for breaking out into a playful wrestling match to burn off some testosterone and built-up energy.
Stereotypically speaking, girls generally stick to “girl-talk” and selfies. The tables turned when Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu trained 16-year-old Riley Breedlove was challenged by a group of four boys to a friendly wrestling match.
Jiu-Jitsu, the martial art form Riley studies, is a Japanese martial art form. The method involves close combat for defeating an armed opponent, in which one uses no weapon or only a short weapon. The form focusses on manipulating the opponent’s force against himself rather than confronting it with one’s own force. Jiu-Jitsu students are taught pins, joint locks, and throws.
In the beginning of the first match I am sure the boys thought it would be an easy win. Within a few moments they realized Riley’s skills were beyond what they expected. Of course they weren’t willing to just give up, as that would not be manly. And I’m pretty sure the boys didn’t just let her win to be nice! I imagine the after watching the first “victim”, the other three boys thought surely they could take her down.
In the future I am pretty sure none of the boys will want to be on Riley’s bad side. She has skills that impress and will keep her safe if she ever finds herself in a dangerous situation. Boys, the next time a girl offers to wrestle you might want to ask her qualifications before you jump in!
