Two teens attacked a runner in Vancouver, Washington on Friday. Little did they know, she was a kung fu expert. I think it goes without saying that the tables were quickly turned on the attackers.
A run-of-the-mill robbery turned into a scene from Kill Bill last week when two teenagers, 16 and 18, attacked Priscilla Dang, a 5-foot-4-inch woman going for a run in her neighborhood. The teens rode up to her on bicycles, with one stopping in front of the 23-year-old who “made eye contact with [her],” reports NY Daily. The second apparently groped her from behind.
What the attackers didn’t know was that Dang had been practicing martial arts since she was a child at the Summit Wushu Academy, a kung fu training school owned by her family. According to the Herald Sun, “something snapped inside her,” and her kung fu background kicked in. She grabbed the first attacker, forced him to the ground, and made him apologize. The second teen started swearing at her, and she punched him twice in the face.
“He started coming in for a few, and I was lucky enough to dodge his shots. I came up for another one and I got him good, and I think that upset him,” she said.
The second teen then pulled out a knife, and Ms. Dang used her attacker’s own bike to deflect his attacks. At that point, she backed off, reports Daily Mail. She managed to escape the incident unharmed, but says that she feels she taught the thugs a lesson. “I think they knew they messed with the wrong girl,” she said.
Two witnesses called 911, and Dang’s 18-year-old attacker was arrested for fourth-degree assault. The younger attacker was taken home to his parents and will be handled by a juvenile prosecutor. Authorities didn’t find the knife, but Dang said it had a four-inch blade.
This is pretty much my favorite story I’ve ever written.
