9 year old kid chokes out pitbull with MMA hold

Who said MMA can't have practical applications, a 9 year old boy used a choke hold to take out a pitbull dog which was attacking a friend.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A 9-year-old Bakersfield boy is being called a hero after he saved a girl and her dog from a pit bull attack.

Drew Heredia said he and a friend were walking a small dog Dec. 30 when a pit bull jumped on the dog. The unidentified 12-year-old girl reportedly tried to save her dog, prompting the pit bull to turn on her.

Heredia said he jumped on the pit bull and applied a choke hold that he learned while taking classes at a Brazilian jujitsu studio in southwest Bakersfield.

"It was kind of a heart-pounding moment," Heredia said. "It was very scary."

He said he held the dog for 20 minutes until an animal control officer arrived.

ďAt first, I wanted to kick it, but then I thought itís not a good idea, because it could get my leg,Ē Heredia said.

The girl was taken to Mercy Southwest Hospital where she was treated for puncture wounds.

The pit bull was quarantined at the animal control office, where it will be euthanized after 10 days. No one has claimed the dog.

The girl's dog was injured, but it's expected to survive. The dog ran away during the attack but returned home Friday afternoon

If it had been a human, here is a method of getting out of a choke hold. How practical this is depends on the strength of the attacker, and the element of surprise..
