Physically and mentally strenuous activities like martial arts are generally not associated with girls. However, Jesse Jane McParland is changing this norm.
A martial artist from the UK, McParland, 16, became famous after she appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, a televised talent show, in 2015 and gained the eighth position at the age of nine. Over the years, she has appeared in popular shows like X-Factor and Ellen De Genres Show, and acted in a 2015 movie The Martial Arts Kid.
In May 2019, she appeared in World’s Got Talent along with her father and reached the semi-finals. During the show, she also received a message from her idol, Jackie Chan.

Now, an old video of her martial arts performance is going viral on Twitter. The undated video shows her skillfully doing a choreographed sword fighting routine. In the one-minute and 52-second-long video, she masterfully does backflips while handling the sword.

The reverse grip flourish along with the one handed then NO HANDED cartwheel are the most impressive parts about this, let alone how fluid her movements are even at that age.
Godking bless tiny warriors.

These competitions are kind of the same as Wushu; it’s like a marriage of martial arts and dance.
Yes, it’s not functional. It’s not meant to be a functional. And all the people whining about it not being functional don’t know anything about functional swordsmanship either.

She’s been a martial artist since she was 3. What gives you the impression that she’s learning “the opposite of martial arts”? How do you define the opposite of martial arts?

Here’s what I see.
A young girl who will grow up with confidence and inner strength. And no man will dominate or control her. She won’t settle for anything less than equality and respect.
