Israeli woman introduces Krav Maga to terrorist

| November 28, 2012

SGT K sends us a link to The Blaze which tells the story of a woman in Israel, Yael Matzpun, who woke to find Palestinian terrorists in her bedroom.

The terrorist turned on the light and said something in Arabic, she recalled. He had a knife in one hand and a metal pipe in the other. Suddenly he lunged at Yael, stabbing her in the face and shoulder.

What the terrorist did not know is that Yael is an athlete trained in Krav Maga, Israeli military hand-to-hand combat. She used her skills to drive him back and into the bathroom, and locked him in. At the same time, she pushed her young children to safety.

She called the Israeli Defense Forces who arrived to find the youngster crawling out the bathroom window. They gave chase and when he wouldn’t drop his gun they dropped him. The only realistic solution for a man who would attack a lone woman and her four children, anyway.

    God Bless our friends in Israel!

  3. RandomNCO says:

    And the best part is, she lost 5 pounds and toned her butt with the Krav Maga method of training!

  4. Hondo says:

    Too bad she didn’t gain possession of his knife and thereafter use it to remove . . . his will to resist. (smile)

    No tears shed for this terrorist bastard; kudos to the lady.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    And you guys get all wonky about women in combat?

    Now I understand why. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    It was probably just a burglary. Why was the poor fellow killed when all he reportedly had was a knife and a pipe?

  7. Owain says:

    Fitting end for a mutant bastard. *spits*

    You may have seen this on the news. This lady absolutely slays me:

    “They gave chase and when he wouldnโ€™t drop his gun they dropped him.” That brings a tear to my eyes, a happy ending. Another jihadi earning his 72 virgin goats.

    Reminds me kinda of when one of my Squad Leaders had someone break into his house. This Squad Leader was a combatives instructor. When the cops arrived and seen the bloody, beaten intruder the first words out of their mouth was “looks like this guy broke into the wrong house”.

    Man, I thought someone would bite at my comment in 7. No takers. That’s good. I wasn’t serious.

  12. OWB says:

    Hah, AC! Sure you were – just in a sardonic sort of a way.

  13. 2-17 Air Cav says:

    @13. Actually, OWB, I was kidding about kidding. I wasn’t sending a cryptic message traceable to, say, a recent incident in Minnesota. I really wasn’t. Really.

  14. KING Wolf says:

    Wait, No, NEVER–
    Bring a knife to a Krav fight…

  16. Tommy says:

    Not that it matters, but he was carrying a knife in one hand, a pipe in the other, when he was beng chased, he wouldn’t drop his gun?

  17. FatCircles says:

    United Nations Human Rights Council is already passing resolutions to condemn that Israelis involved.

  18. streetsweeper says:

    Maybe his “gun” was shriveled up from having his ass kicked by a girl and stored in its cock holster? Now you know why it is a good idea to keep Army Sergeant a good distance away from ya, unless your handing her a cold beer. J/K Army Sergeant.
