11-year-old Girl Combats Bullying With MMA

What do you do if you see the words ‘I want to die’ scribbled all over your daughter’s room? This is the shocking situation Charlie Tietgen found himself in after learning the plight of bullied daughter, Claire.

From a happy and outgoing child, Claire changed into an abused and depressed girl after school bullying began to torture her since first grade. Other children picked on her and gave her misery. In her confusion and pain, she wondered why such horrors happen to her and badly desired a break – even if that meant committing suicide.

Fortunately, her family stepped in on time and with the help of Austen Ford at Brass Boxing in Waldo, Claire received a new leash on life through the form of mixed martial arts. Today, she is a skilled, talented, and happy fighter, able to stand up for herself and with nine gold medals won from various competitions to boot. See her inspiring video here.
