9-Year-Old Irish Samurai’s Audition Amazed Judges, Now Has Over 55 Million Views
Jesse Jane McParland is now 11-years-old, but she proved her toughness when she was only nine. The young girl is a martial arts master, a true Samurai, and she’s certainly not anybody that you’d want to mess with.
“I saw people doing martial arts and I said ‘Daddy, daddy, look at this,’ but he said it was too dangerous," she said during an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show a couple years back.
Jesse decided that dancing or gymnastics weren’t really for her, what she really wanted to do was become an expert at martial arts.
“We went to watch basketball, but I couldn’t stop thinking about karate. We went home and mummy asked why I didn’t like ballet or Irish dancing, and I said, ‘Not every girl dreams of being a little princess.’"
Her Ellen appearance was about one year after the talented samurai was a contestant on the ninth season of Britain’s Got Talent. Everyone thinks she’s adorable as she speaks to the judges — but then she comes back with a sword.
