During jiujitsu lessons Tuesday evening, instructor Matt Baker asked 9-year-old Drew Heredia what he would do if put in a certain position he was teaching.

“I’d get on my back and do a choke hold,” he said.

It’s the same thing Drew did last week when he saved a 12-year-old girl from being mauled by a pit bull. Using a tactic he learned in class, he put the attacking dog in a chokehold and held it for at least 20 minutes until help arrived.

Nine-year-old Drew Heredia rescued a girl from being mauled by placing a choke hold on a dog, a move he learned while training at Bakersfield Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training Center. Drew attended a Tuesday evening class at the center and is learning a new move. His partner shown here is Derek Beltran.
