This little girl's mini martial arts routine has gone viral for all the right reasons as she copied her instructor word for word and step for step.


Sophie Wong from Leeds in the United Kingdom started taking classes at Premier Martial Arts Leeds, in Carlton Mills, Armley in January 2015.

In the video shared by the martial arts academy on Facebook, Sophie can be seen perfectly mimicking her instructor through the entire student creed just a month after she started training there.

Not only does she follow the creed step by step, but the 3-year-old also looks utterly adorable doing it.

The clip is just 80 seconds long, but has already been viewed over 434,000 times on Premier Martial Arts' page alone. It has also been shared 3,600 times, and has over 8,000 reactions.

The little girl only joined the Tiny Champions class after her older brother, Harry, signed on at the academy. She is the youngest member of her class.


Her mom told the Yorkshire Evening Post that she was amazed by the response to her young daughter's video, and had never realized what a reach it would have.

“She loves to learn and copies her brother, and I just wanted her to come and learn about discipline, attention and the concentration that she might need in school,” she added.

Ricky Lam, one of the master instructors at the academy, has explained how interest in martial arts quadrupled in just a fortnight after the video was posted.

“We’re always trying to get the best out of our young people, but for a three-year-old I’ve never seen this type of focus and dedication. Her attitude is fantastic,” he said.
