A Kidnapper Chased A Woman Into A Karate Dojo - And Came Out On A Stretcher

A Kidnapper Chased A Woman Into A Karate Dojo - And Came Out On A Stretcher

Genius of the day...

Earlier this week, we told you about Polyana Viana’s story, a UFC fighter who completely disfigured a man after he tried to steal her phone. For this story we’re staying in the same vein but we are moving away from the MMA to go to a karate dojo, where a man simply should not have set foot.

So today we will tell you the story of a karate teacher coming to the rescue of a woman in distress. It was in front of the Bushoken Karate Charlotte Dojo Dojo in North Carolina, in Charlotte, that a man tried to attack a young woman. Afraid, the woman had the good idea of running into a dojo. Pursued by her abuser, she asked for help from the first person she saw, who happened to be Randall Ephraim, a karate instructor.

‘There were still children in the dojo who were being cared for by their parents and a couple of adult students cleaning the carpets, when a young woman came in through our doors and said that someone was trying to hurt her. Some time later, a very tall man came into the building and I asked how I could help him and he said he was there for the woman. She insisted on the fact that she did not know him and he was trying to kidnap her.’

It was in this atmosphere that our attacker, the young woman, and the karate instructor were in the dojo. Of course, you who know how this story is going to end. A fight between the teacher and the aggressor? You are absolutely right.

‘He tried to force the doors of the dojo open, pushing aggressively. Then I went to fight to defend myself and get him out of the dojo. Once outside, he tried to attack again and was taken care of.’

The alleged aggressor, August Williams, apparently on drugs, left the dojo on a stretcher, and was transported to the hospital, before being taken to prison.
