High School Boy Instantly Regrets Bullying A Girl With Serious Mixed Martial Arts Skills

Bullying is one of those societal ills that seems like it's been around forever. Unfortunately, it may have gotten even worse with the advent of the internet, which brought easy access to personal information and the ability to harass people with complete anonymity.

Sadly, there's often nothing bullied kids can do to stop it. One teenage girl, however, found a way to end the bullying once and for all. She confronted her cyberbully, a boy in her school, and took matters into her own hands using a surprisingly intense set of skills.

What followed was truly shocking. And it was all caught on film...

At Sonoma Valley High School in Sonoma, California, a female student decided to confront a boy who had been cyberbullying her. The boy probably didn't expect her to have such an intimidating set of skills...
The bullied girl actually used a variation of mixed martial arts, which combines methods for striking and grappling, while standing or on the ground (as seen in the photograph below). Created using a combination of martial arts practices and combat sports, it can be pretty dangerous.
The video of the encounter quickly went viral after it was posted on Facebook. Several people left comments to applaud the girl for standing up to her bully and fighting back. However, not everyone was so thrilled about what they saw...
"We never condone violence in any shape or form," the school's administration said in a statement. "People are commenting on Facebook without any knowledge of the incident, and it’s just unfortunate that those are the things we deal with."
This fight (one-sided as it was) may have been entertaining to the students who cheered from the sidelines, as well as those who did so online, but obviously not everyone felt the same way. To really understand why, though, you have to see it for yourself.
Before watching the video, it's important to note that the effects of bullying often extend beyond the feeling of being harassed and abused. There have been countless cases where victims eventually turn to self-harm and suicide when it becomes too much to bear.
