This 8-Year-Old Girl Is Insanely Good At Boxing And Could Probably Beat Us Up And We Are Obsessed With Her — VIDEO
It's no secret that tween girls kick ass. When they aren't shredding Metallica covers, they're doing rad stuff like this girl who is taking a stronghold on the MMA community. This 8-year-old girl is a boxing champ, as evidenced by a recent video of her practicing her moves with her dad. Like, I took kickboxing in seventh grade, so I have a very vague idea of what's involved here. But whereas I spent a half-assed hour once a week on practice, it seems safe to assume the small but fierce Evnik Saad'vakass takes her craft a bit more seriously, and she's about four years younger than I was when I dabbled with wrapping wrists and throwing down. In other words, this girl is killing it, and I remain weak and soft.
The young Kazakh girl has basically born and bred to do major damage to kung fu stereotypes. She earned the nickname "boxing baby" three years ago by throwing close to 100 punches in under two minutes—when she was five. She was five when she did that! And ever since, Saad'vakass has only pushed herself under her father's guidance. All the hours logged whacking the red, hanging bags and her dad's open palms have effectively made her stronger, faster, and even more impressive. Saad'vakass may look adorable in her slight, tiny stance, but I wouldn't be surprised if pure lava raged just beneath her skin.
Duuude. Her tiny braids fly in fury! It's like someone hit fast-forward on this but...they didn't! This is just Saad'vakass doing what she does. See more of that doing below:
And remember, it's not like Saad'vakass just woke up insanely talented in the art of butt-kicking—her dad got her started very young, taking her to the gym to practice. Tireless dedication all around, really. Here's the fireball at an even younger age, still slaying:
Not to belittle the incredible talent and respect due here, but this is pretty funny to watch on mute. It's even funnier paired with, say, LL Cool J. Crank it now and let's look at select scenes in a new light:
The dad goes from dedicated coach to dance battle challenger. However, the grand finale is the best part:
That's love. And it's adorable—although again, I'd be downright terrified to get on this little lady's bad side.
