"I'm going to smash your head", "I'm going to stab you in the alley ..." A stranger tried to assault 16-year-old Alex Williams during his lunch break.
The teenager, four-time world champion in Brazilian jujitsu, did not panic.
He took both legs of his attacker to make him fall to the ground and stood up to him for about 40 seconds.
Video of the fight scene that took place in Guisborough, England was shared overwhelmingly on social media.

Alex Williams, who also practices MMA, managed to scare the attacker away. At the end of the confrontation, he realized that blood was flowing down his neck. The attacker tore off a piece of his ear during the confrontation. “I went to the hospital to have it cleaned and I have six stitches now,” he tells Teesside News. He hopes that the virality of the images of aggression will make young people want to practice combat sport.
