I Love Stories Like These...

Joseph in IL sends in the feel-good story of the day.

Martial arts teacher confronts burglar in San Jose home
If Brian Kuhn had not forgotten his martial arts uniform at home, his day would have been far different.

Thursday morning Kuhn was traveling between the two martial arts studios where he teaches kickboxing and MMA fighting when he decided to go home and pick up his uniform.
He walked into his home - accompanied by his 5 year old daughter - to find a stranger in his dining room. When he confronted the stranger, the interloper claimed "this guy" let me in - and produced a crowbar. It was at this point that Kuhn proceeded to beat the living stuffing out of the moron.

There had to be a point during the confrontation where the burglar realized that he had made a serious tactical error. I'd wager the first inkling came when the homeowner didn't shriek and run away at the sight of the pry bar.

I'd wager the second clue came when he was getting his head smashed through a window...

That is all.

..... But a mistake to drag the goblin outside. Better to have him still inside your castle when the LEO's arrive to do the paperwork.

Man! I was hoping for a mugshot on that one.

Years ago, a friend of Asian, Scots heritage walked into his home whilst returning from his Kung Fu class, some idiot who had been ransacking his home swung a hatchet at him. He blocked it with one of the basic moves first learned and only received a slight divot in his skull, things got really , really ugly for the thief after this. more than forty years after he's still in a wheel chair. I love a story with a happy ending.
