Man Who Attacked Expert Kickboxer as She Walked Home Picked the Wrong Victim

This very excellent news is making us all want to sign up for self defense classes. A female kickboxer fought back against her attacker and successfully knocked him out -- and was awarded $800 by a judge. Who is this real-life Wonder Woman?

Would you believe me if I told you she's keeping her identity a secret? Because she is -- but that's her right as the victim of an attack. Victim? I'm not so sure that's the right word in this case. Here's all the action-packed details.

The young woman was walking home at 2:00 a.m. when 39-year-old Mark Willis pounced, punching her, pushing her over a wall, jumping on top of her, and attempting to get under her clothes. "Be quiet and do as I tell you and you won't get hurt," he told her.

First the woman attempted an arm lock hoping to break his arm. "The intention is to send the elbow in the wrong direction and cause extreme pain or a break," she tells the Daily Telegraph. "I was not able to do that. I think he figured out what I was trying to do because he managed to wriggle free and he hit me again repeatedly in the face."

This stunned her, but only for a moment. "My legs were still free so I lifted my left leg up onto his shoulder and around the back of his neck," she says. "I crossed my right leg over and squeezed together as hard as I could."

3. A good friend of mine is into MMF

She has quite a life-tale, battled poverty, racism (she's Native American) and addiction and won. It's awesome to see her thrive!

5. Not to disparage other minorities at all but Native Americans have had it very hard

Utah was the last state to allow them vote. That law was passed in mid-50s.

Native American women are at a tremendous disadvantage even today. Rapes on reservations are often neither investigated nor prosecuted. Reservation authorities are not recognized and can't pursue suspects outside the reservation. Local LE has no authority to act on crimes committed on the reservation.

7. Very true

It's a huge problem--NA activists and feminists are trying to address this, a long road to travel!

6. My advice

Fight dirty. I'm an old fart and if you get me on the ground I'll stick fingers in your eyes, knees to the nuts and hit pressure point that'll cross your eyes. To get me on the ground, you have to catch me first.

8. my karate teacher told us about a black belt friend attacked in an elevator

 

Guy pulled a knife on her.

She has no memory of what happened after he pulled out the knife.

But when they reached the ground level and the doors opened, one of his shoulders was dislocated and that arm hanging useless, his jaw was dislocated and stuck hanging wide open, and his knife was found stuck in the ceiling of the elevator.

She was uninjured.

10. This woman was attacked by a leopard in India last year.

She fought back and won. The story is at the link. I don't know how she's doing now. I wish there was a follow up story. Bruce Lee had nothing on her, that's for sure!
