Muggers Outnumbered Two to Six

Thursday, September 09, 2004

FOX News

Six muggers picked the wrong targets — two karate experts.

New Zealander Craig Nordstrand, a fourth-level black belt, and colleague Peter Roche were in Suva, capital city of the Pacific island of Fiji (search), last week for regional championships, reports the New Zealand Herald.

The two of them had just finished dinner and were walking back to their hotel when two men came toward them, asking for money. Four more men stepped out of the shadows.

Nordstrand took on four of the men. Roche handled the other two. The attackers backed off, but then surrounded the two New Zealanders for a second try.

"Do you want karate?" Nordstrand asked.

One man failed to heed the warning and moved in.

"I kicked him straight under the chin and into the throat," Nordstrand told the newspaper.

The struck man and the rest of the gang ran off into the dark streets. Nordstrand and Roche became local heroes for a few days.

"It was a bit of excitement," he shrugged.

Good for them.

I wonder when they'll be prosecuted for having the audiacity to think that they have the right to defend themselves?

American muggers talking:

"OK, here come a couple a chumps. You guys hide over there, and when they get up to us, we'll stop 'em and you get behind them."

"Hell no, they might have CCW's!"

"Yeah, let's go watch Survivor."

"Screw getting shot, let's go home."
