This weekend a 10 year old little girl, in Eustis Florida, which is a town about 25-30 minutes from here, was almost abducted by a man twice her size, from her front yard where she was playing.
Fortunately, this story ends with a happy ending. This 10 year old girl, fought, broke free and got away.
The police are still looking for the guy that tried to take her.
I am sure this guy will think twice about grabbing another child. You see, this little girl just so happened to be a black belt in karate.
Though, I wish she never had to go through any of that, I am so happy that she was trained, very well I am sure, to stay calm, defend herself and escape a situation that could very well have turned deadly.
And..to anyone who wonders why my boys train 5-6 days a week in martial arts and combat style/street fighting, to become better and stronger. That is the #1 reason why. You simply cannot be too careful. If there are any parents out there who still on the fence about sending their children to martial arts training, please think again. That 1 hour class that you'll find yourself driving to 3 to 5 times a week could save the life of your child.
On a brighter note...Kody and Kolin has recently gotten the word that they will be testing again on January 31st for their second degree black belt.
How awesome is that?
These were taken this afternoon...
I am so stinkin' proud of those two boys of mine. :0)
Hope you all have the most awesome day everyone!!
