Two grown men, one of them a belligerent father, recently bullied a much smaller, polite boy, later identified as 14-year-old Connor Jackson. Unfortunately, for the two grown idiots, Connor had a secret that they’d soon learn about the hard way when he unleashed it on them — and by then, it was too late.
According to the Mirror, the disagreement began over a scooter in the skate park in Willenhall, England. Onlookers recorded video of the confrontation as it escalated. It becomes apparent from the beginning of the footage that Jackson and his 12-year-old younger brother, Marcus, were trying to be respectful and polite. They answered the loudmouth’s questions and did not present themselves in a menacing way.
The adults slung insults at the 12-year-old, and the older Jackson brother got involved when the belligerent father’s wife said, “You are f*****g lucky,” to which Marcus replied, “Lucky for what?” according to the Daily Star. “Lucky that I ain’t f*****g battering you, you little p****,” the woman screamed back.
Things got really bad for the bullies, who are thought to be in their mid-twenties, when one of them threw a punch at Jackson. The angry group did not know that Connor had been training in mixed martial arts with adults for four years. However, after trying to strike Jackson, they quickly found out.
Connor’s father, Nathan Jackson, described the incident as follows:
“Connor has got his hand down to start with but when they start manhandling him that was when he goes ‘I have got to stand up for myself’ and he reacts.
“I’m proud that he didn’t pursue him because he was on the floor and he could have really hurt him.
“You could tell that the guy didn’t want any more after Connor had punched him.
“He is a really nice lad, he understands that you can hurt people when you understand martial arts.”

Clearly, the adults in the video thought that they could emotionally intimidate the smaller Connor, and the abuse they put on display is unacceptable, especially towards a child. Jackson was calm and respectful, but he sprung into action without hesitation when needed.
Those adults are actually the lucky ones. They did get beat up, but they didn’t wind up in jail, which is what they certainly deserved. The proof is in the video. However, the humiliation they are enduring as they become internet sensations is going to last much longer than any jail sentence they would have gotten, and that might just be even better.
