A black-belt German tourist gave her Australian attacker the chop – and a karate kick to the head – after being assaulted in the Outback town of Alice Springs, police said on Monday.
The 20-year-old hit back hard when the unknown assailant punched her for not handing over a cigarette, forcing him to flee…
“She punched him three times in the face with a karate punch and kicked him with a karate kick. She did pretty well – not that we’re encouraging that sort of thing.”

A Polish thief got more than he bargained for when he tried to steal a pensioner’s car – and the owner turned out to be a karate black belt. Wojciech Chomicki, 71, spotted him trying to make off with his car, ripped open the car door, flipped the 41-year-old thief out of the driver’s seat and pinned him to the ground with a choke hold while a pal called police.
A spokesman for police in Plock, northern Poland, said: “He saw the man breaking into his car from his kitchen window, ran outside and had him completely disabled on the floor as quick as a flash. When officers got there he seemed quite relieved to be released from the man’s grip. The thief picked the wrong car to steal.”
Chomicki has been a qualified teacher in Shotokan karate for more than 30 years and has been studying it for more than 50.
