Karate in Action – Saves 14 Year Old Girl!!For Kids . News . Self-Defense
In Milwaukee, OR (USA) – A 14-year-old girl used her karate training to fight off an attacker. This Milwaukee High School freshman was walking to school about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday on Lake Road near 33rd when a man jumped out from behind a bush and grabbed her arm. Instead of panicking and becoming another statistic the young girl says her years of karate helped her escape his grip. “If someone grabs you by the hand, we learned how to twist out of it. If someone grabs you by the arm, you learn how to get out of it,” the victim told local station KOIN News 6.
The girl twisted her ankle running away but made it to the school, where teachers called police. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man around 30 years old, 5’9″ with a medium build and a shaved head and clean-shaven face. He was wearing a black leather jacket, black pants with a tear in the left knee, a black glove on his left hand, a dark colored scarf or handkerchief on his right hand and a dark colored backpack. Anyone with information is asked to call the Milwaukee Police Department at (503) 786-7500.
This is a great example of why more kids should be enrolled in martial arts or self-defense training. The girl handled herself well by immediately reacting and breaking the grab. She was lucky since from the article she did experience some normal panic as she twisted her ankle. If the location had been more remote she may not have been as lucky. Everyone here at KT.org is very happy and proud of this young girl, and even happier that she is safe and sound.
