Robber Tries To Steal From Jiu-Jitsu Student But Instantly Regrets It

Everyone loves a good comeuppance story, particularly when the retribution is instant, as is shown in the video below.

The footage shows what happened to an alleged robber after he attempted to steal a phone from a Jiu-Jitsu student over in Manaus, Brazil. OK, we know you shouldn't steal phones in the first place, but if you're going to, make sure they aren't a trained martial artist.

No doubt the guy instantly regretted his decision - he can be seen writhing around in pain as 22-year-old Sabrina Leite threatens to break his arm while she has it locked in a bar move.

He picked with the wrong bad-ass. And when you put yourself into a position like that, you can't have any complaints if you get your arse handed to you. That's certainly what happened in this case.

Local media reports that the woman had been in front of her house when two men approached her on a motorbike. One of the men, aged 18, jumped off and told her to give him her smartphone.

Did she surrender? Of course she didn't. Instead she told the sucker that she had other plans and after refusing to hand over her phone, he got scared, ran off and was chased down by Ms. Comeuppance.

Once she'd caught up, Sabrina wrestled the guy to the floor and the rest, as they say, is history.She said: "I could feel that they didn't have anything (weapons), they just arrived scarily saying 'pass the phone'.

"I saw they didn't have anything and that's why I reacted. If they had been armed I would never have reacted.

"He was running away. My neighbour went after him in the car and reached him.

"Then I ran and immobilised him with a sleeper hold, I lay on the ground and put him in an arm lock."

Despite her resounding triumph, Sabrina has remained humble about the whole thing and said she was only able to get him in the arm lock because of practice.

Around twenty minutes after holding the guy down, the police showed up and arrested him for attempted robbery.

She added: "It's all a question of technique. I have been training for four years, I'm still a white belt. Ranking and belts don't matter to me."

Humble and a total kickass - that Jiu-Jitsu training has already paid for itself. Fair play to her.
