As I’ve watched Apolonia Nuncio compete in jiu-jitsu super fights since the age of 7, and she has easily been one of my favorite grapplers to cheer for and support.
While scrolling through Twitter, I see a video of a 13 year old girl subduing a bully in a classroom, and I’m impressed. Scrolling down a little more to find out it’s Apolonia Nuncio doing the jiu-jitsu’ing! Which for the life me, I can’t fathom anyone ever trying to bully such a sweet, and innocent looking assassin.
According Geovanny Martinez, a 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, Apolonia shared the bully beatdown video with him to post; Apolonia trains at 10th Planet in Austin, Texas.
The bully picked the right one that day! But more importantly, shout out to Apolonia for standing up for herself. You can follow her BJJ journey on Instagram @apolonianuncio.
Lessons were learned that day.
