A little boy wanted no part of his opponent in a youth wrestling match, so he utilized an interesting strategy: Run away!

A hilarious video posted to Instagram shows the little boy and a little girl square up, shake hands and prepare to wrestle.

But when the whistle goes off, the boy suddenly runs away, making his opponent chase him around the mat.

The girl, at one point, threw her hands up during her chase — as if to say, “I don’t know what’s going on.”

Eventually, she gets him on the ground, but he squirms away and breaks free, and it's off to the races again.

With the video going viral now, the boy’s mother posted a photo on Tuesday with the caption, “Warmed up and ready for running away!”

Watch the hilarious video above.
