Millie Bobby Brown Jiu Jitsu in Enola Holmes
Millie Bobby Brown recently starred in the Enola Holmes movies, where she played the title character Enola, the younger sister of Sherlock Holmes. The movies contain countless fighting scenes and fighting techniques.
In the movies, Enola (Millie Bobby Brown) learns Japanese Jiu Jitsu from her mother Eudoria, and especially from her mother’s sister Edith. For example, Enola is struggling to learn the corkscrew technique but is able to master it at the end of the first movie.
The actress made the following remarks on her Jiu Jitsu training for Enola Holmes:
“I don’t think it’s easy to just do Jiu-Jitsu in itself. But yes, obviously doing it in a corset and heels made it a bit more difficult. Don’t get me wrong but I think it made it more fun”

Millie Bobby Brown is Good at Boxing
Millie Bobby Brown not only trains Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but also loves boxing. The actress stated the following a few years ago:
“I train to box. Obviously, I don’t want to do it professionally. But I have done some inter-clubs before. It’s at Phoenix MMA U.K., down in London. It’s a great gym, and I have lots of friends. Because I’m homeschooled, I get kind of lonely sometimes. So I like to go to the gym. I do Thai boxing Mondays, Jiu Jitsu Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Wednesdays I do boxing with Marc [Plunkett]. He was a world champion at one point. I absolutely love it. I actually have a punching bag right outside in my garden. I’m obsessed with working out. I eat like a pig so it kind of makes up for that.”
