Although her current rank is unknown, earning her second stripe means that she has at least trained for a few months.

MMA’s Impact on Millie Bobby Brown’s Career

Millie Bobby Brown has acted in several movies that involve fighting scenes. The most notable and popular of those is called ‘Enola Holmes’.

In this movie, Brown plays the protagonist Enola, who is the little sister of Sherlock Holmes. The film also features a female Jiu-jitsu master, Edith, from whom Enola learns. Brown training Jiu-Jitsu at a young age has tremendously helped her play the role of Enola.

Brown even mentioned her training in an interview with Good Morning America. She said, “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”.

From this statement, she was referring to the fact that the character of Enola had to be always wearing a corset as the movie was based in early Britain, around the early 1900s. This made the training even more difficult for Brown, although she claimed it was fun as well.
