Thief Tries To Rob Female Jiu-Jitsu Fighter, Ends Up Crying on the Ground
Hold-ups are one of the scariest things that can happen to someone. Imagine minding your own business one minute, and having someone, often armed, threatening you, the next. Criminals use the shock factor to coerce their victims into giving up their possessions. But these criminals didn’t count on a fight being put up when they encountered a woman outside a home in Manaus, Brazil last week.
You see the house was occupied by Sabrina Leites, a 22-year-old Jiu-Jitsu trainee who couldn’t wait to test out her moves in a real-world environment. Two young men rolled up on a motorcycle and demanded her cell phone. Leites had previously had four phones taken as a result of home invasions and decided enough was enough
Seeing that the men weren’t armed, she fought back managing to quell the hold-up. Whilst one of the men jumped back on the bike and took off, the other man was hampered as he fled on foot by a neighbour who ran him down with their car! Hectic!
As he lay on the street, recovering from being hit by the vehicle, Leites swooped on the opportunity to make sure the man didn’t get away. Employing a perfect ‘armbar’ the man couldn’t have escaped is he tried. By cocking the man’s wrist all the way forward with force, Leites was able to impart severe pain on the man, ensuring he didn’t try anything funny.
There she held him, as he weeps ‘Enough, enough!’ until the police arrived to apprehend him.
The incident is remarkably similar to Monique Bastos’ incident last year. Bastos also successfully defended herself and later said:
“I’ve been through this a few times before, and it’s the second time I fought back.“There were two guys, and they were using knives, but I was able to use my jiu-jitsu and get my phone back. It’s a huge risk, but I did it to defend myself and my friends, so I used what I learned.”
