However, what you can’t see, at least in her street clothes, is that Ruby Ching is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu purple belt who trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for almost 10 years.
She’s not the kind of person that anyone should be messing with, and one unlucky attacker found this out the hard way. Check out the video below!
