I almost drove off the road laughing when I heard this news story… it is the fantasy of every dojo-rat (dedicated martial arts student)!
A slightly confused stick up man walked into a dojo (karate school) in Bucaramanga, a town in northwestern Colombia. The would-be thief attempted to rob the school but, unfortunately, couldn’t intimidate the two dozen or so students, who ranged in age from children to adults. The class that was in session turned on him, disarmed him, and directed him to the ground – where he waited for the local authorities. He was later transported to the hospital!
There has never – I mean not once – been a serious martial arts student who hasn’t fantasized about this very thing… 🙂
