The Star said Marietjie Fourie, who will compete in the Shotokan Karate World Championships in 2003, let fly a flurry of blows when her attacker grabbed her at her home in the port city of Durban. The man struck back, but Fourie grabbed wooden fighting sticks joined by a chain and lit into him, putting him in hospital with a smashed skull and facial bones. Fourie was quoted by the newspaper as saying it was the third time she had physically repelled intruders or attackers. "Every time I have caught someone trying to break into my house or attack me, I have beaten them off, incapacitating them or forcing them to flee," she said. South Africa has one of the world's highest rates of violent crime and violence against women is widespread. --------- he wont be going back to THAT house ever again!

"wooden fighting sticks joined with a chain" Uhhhh...Nunchucku AKA Nunchucks. I guess they wanted to use the technical term. You see guys, we don't need guns. We all just need to learn Karate and we'll all be ok...wait a minute though, Karate could be dangerous, I mean once we posess those skills, we might want to go out and beat someone up, and look at that poor criminal with his skull bashed in. That's it, Karate is just too dangerous. Ban Karate now! Ban Karate Now! It's for the children. Mike

The Kaliban, years ago as a result of a rash of drive-by nunchuckings and shurikenings, saw fit to make the possession of those martial arts weapons a felony. Oh ya, I almost forgot to mention that military and law enforcement are exempt from the ban as usual. HAHAHA!

Yeah, that's funny. I think more than just Kali has banned Nunchucks. LOL..won't have to worry about that happening here. I once had a female officer come to my place in San Diego after about TEN HOURS to take a stolen vehicle report, she had some funny apparatus on her hip that turned out to be nunchucks when I asked. She also gave me this look of "But YOU can't have any"...lol. Wanted to say..."Oh, you mean you can't hit $hit with your service weapon eh?" This was after I had seen a couple of different news stories on multiple cops emptying their Berettas and hitting bystanders and not the perp...sorry kind of off issue. OOPS

I believe they have come to name this invention already. Nunchakus perhaps. WTF is wrong with these reporters not researching about weapons. Yet they can tell you if the subject of the story had a big ass zit on their face while in kindergarten, or if the Presidents crapped his cream corn from dinner intact this morning.

I remember an episode of Cops in which a man was jumped by two robbers. By the time the cops got there one robber was [b]dead[/b] and the other one was in serious hurt. Apparently the guy they picked on was a martial arts expert. The attackee was not emotionally prepared for causing such havoc and was crying as he sat on the curb. The cops (and I) had the same reaction, those guys picked on the [i]wrong[/i] person. [i]The above was from the best of my recollection, which even on a good day is suspect...[/i]

(You probably have to have spent time in the country to understand that. [;)]) She's a gardener/canner. She sews for a living, and is well paid w/benefits. She's a truly excellent cook. She shoots weekly at our pistol club. She's not bad looking--for an old broad. She keeps my mother off my back, as mom likes her much better. She's h**ny as a goat. Ahem! She nags a little because I am a complete PITA to live with. [:D] Edit: I just re-read this and must add--I LOVE MY WIFE!!!

I did not know my wife had a twin sister. You are married to her! Mine is a nurse though, she has been drawn 3 times out of 4 in AZ for an Elk tag, but I am too lousy a guide to find her one to shoot. The older I get, the hornier she gets. Life is not fair, I should have dated older women when I was 20!

I saw that episode also. The guy just kept talking and talking, crying and crying. He made the mistake of saying something to the effect of "I just kept kicking him in the head." While it was obvious that he was the victim in this particular situation, he used an unjustified amount of force. [i]A[/i] kick to the head is one thing. Multiple kicks to the head until your white sneakers are covered in blood is something completely different. But I had the same reaction as you until I thought about it.

UhOh... Nunchucks are a big no-no in Kalifornia (assualt weapon, didn't yopu hear?)... guess i'll have to use a gun, instead...oh wait...can't do that eaither (we're a concealed-carry state in name only)... what about harsh language? Is that still legal? (DonR's reply: absolutely not... I refer you to the forum conduct code)
Link Posted: 5/15/2002 9:28:04 AM EDT
Sounds like she was kickin ass and taking names! pdxshooter, did the cops episode say what happened to the guy that beat down his assailants? Did they go after him for excessive force? I hope not... it wasn't like he provoked the attack.

What?!? My reaction (even after I thought about it) was one less piece of shit on the street. [b]Good riddance.[/b] And I'll just bet the cops said the same thing. And if they testified in court, despite the tape, I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled a Ronnie Reagan and didn't [i]remember[/i] any excessive force comments. Unjustified? Two on one? He kept kicking until he was safe.
