Martial arts > sharks: How MMA technique saved shark attack victim

Share it

As we all know, sharks sometimes attack humans. This is mostly because the animal mistakes people for food. 14-year-old Joshua Watson can tell you what it’s like to be mistaken for a meal.

Watson was attacked by a shark off the South Carolina shoreline recently when a fish got ahold of his ankle. Keeping calm from his martial arts training, Watson struck the shark in the nose with a quick punch. Similar to when an opponent attempts a single-leg takedown (but with more teeth), the teenager implemented his strikes on the ideal pressure point, negating any further advances from the shark.

And there you have it. Sharks have horrible defense against ground-and-pound. Check out the video with the victim (WARNING: Images may be graphic):
