Jiu-Jitsu Student Akira Bua | Video

This 12-Year-Old Jujitsu Champ Is Smashing Gender Stereotypes

Akira Bua has been practicing jujitsu since age 9 and has won gold at multiple national tournaments — often against boys much bigger than her. "If I'm fighting a boy, then sometimes they will underestimate me. And that can work to my advantage," she told POPSUGAR.

Akira has been named one of Hulu's real-life Powerpuff Girls! You can watch all six seasons of the Powerpuff Girls classic series, plus the complete first season of the 2016 series, now streaming on Hulu.
