Jiu-jitsu world champion, 16, body slams grown man after ear was “bitten” in public

A 16-year-old martial arts world champion handed out a painful lesson to a grown man who bit his ear and threatened to stab him.

Footage captured in Guisborough, North Yorkshire, shows the unknown man screaming at a teenager sat on a bench and threatening to “stab him down the alley”.

Little did the aggressor realize that the man he threatened was actually a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu specialist whose survival instincts kicked into high gear as soon as the threat was made.

Alex Williams used his skills to throw the man in the air and then floor him. He then sent him tumbling backwards when he tried again.

The man can be seen aggressively shouting at 16-year-old Alex Williams up-close, while the teen sits on a bench.

The teenager, from Redcar, told Teesside Live : “As he got closer to me I saw an opportunity to defend myself and fight back, so I took it.

“When the fight or flight kicks in you’ve got to choose one or the other and I chose to fight back and I was focused.

“Obviously I was worried in case he had a knife on him because he has threatened to stab me but in situations like that it’s about surviving and I was thankfully ready for him.

“Because I had practiced it many times, the move was easy for me to do because I was seated.

“My main aim was to de-escalate the situation safely.”

Footage of the attack was posted on social media by his coach Alex Enlund, and has been viewed more than a million times.

Alex was not able to escape the attack unharmed. He had to be admitted to hospital for treatment of an ear injury that he claims was caused by the man biting.

“There was blood everywhere and I realised he had bitten a chunk out of my ear,” He stated.

“I went to hospital to get it cleaned and I’ve got six stitches in it now.”

Enlund expressed appreciation for his student’s ability to react to threats and encouraged parents to encourage their children to take up combat sports.

“Fully grown man tried to attack 16-year-old multiple time junior world champion in BJJ,” Enlund also posted the video.

“Alex shows composure, restraint and courage to handle this situation. Get your kid into martial arts and combat sports – it’s unlikely they will become the bully due to the humility learned on mats.”
