The high stakes world of the Pokémon Trading Card Game never rests. We’ve reported on numerous thefts and attempts at thefts of Pokémon cards in the past, but this might be the first one that was stopped by the power of ju-jitsu.

In Miami, Florida, a man attempted to run off from a card store called Pro Play Games carrying two large binders full of extremely valuable Pokémon cards. He probably would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for two MMA fighters who happened to be driving by at the time. Seeing the commotion, they quickly blocked off the thief’s escape and pinned him to the ground, using their “ju jitsu to subdue him”.

The thief says that he was paid by a third party to steal the binders, and has pled not guilty to the charges. You can actually watch a surveillance video which caught all the action via the video above. Let this be a lesson for anyone considering running off with some Pokémon cards - You might end up on the losing end of an actual battle!
