Fighting off the big guys...

From the InBrief section of the Daily Telegraph 25th June 2009:

"A grandfather fought off a knife-wielding robber using his martial arts skills
to throw him over his shoulder.
Alan Thomas 68, who is just 5ft 5in tall, took on the taller armed attacker
after he discovered him inside his home. Mr Thomas who has taught martial
arts for 37 years, was stabbed in the hand before he could act, then hit the
intruder in the face and hurled him over his head".

What a great story! Just shows that with training the little man can prevail. Bring on those large partners for me to train with...
