That's awesome, some of the comments about the kid are just ignorant on other articles I have seen about it.

That boy is to be commended. Definitely should get an applause as that was balls to the walls.

good stuff. i sometimes spar with my dogs some. i've never put one out. it's fun to see that the same stuff kinda works on them. the hard part is that their ribcages seem rounder, so they are about to roll off their backs more easily. thus side control sucks, but at least they give you their back hah.

i probably would have run away hah. pit bulls are no joke. funny that a 9 year old has more balls than me. thus i'm gonna take it upon myself to be an ass hole and point out that the kid had his palm incorrectly facing toward the dog's head. maybe that can boost my ego somehow...

My instructor and I always joke about sparring with our dogs. I triangled my lab before. Not an easy task mind you.

I wish I had learned a RNC at 9 even with my hand turned the wrong way.... Even if I had known how I don't think I would have been able to attack the dog. Crazy.

One of the middle school girls at my school saw her friend get bitten by a dog and literally pulled her out when the dog would not let go. Pretty courageous.
