Virginia Beach, Va. - Summer Bronco is a 12-year-old dominating the world of martial arts.

The four-time National Muay Thai champion from Virginia Beach is working toward a World Title, if she could only get people to fight her.

"We've had three fights with European girls scheduled and all three backed out," says Summer's coach Jose Aguirre.

She's been practicing Muay Thai since she was five years old and if you meet her, you almost wouldn't believe she's such a beast in the ring.

"I'm actually really silly, nice person but when I get in the ring, you know, I just have something just clicks and I just get aggressive," says Summer.

Because she's so aggressive in the ring, people her own age are too scared to fight her.

"It's really hard for her to find opponents that are her age that want to fight her because shes at such a high level now that shes forced to fight at a higher age group," says Aguirre.

She has a fifth title fight scheduled for January 23rd in Ashburn, Virginia.
