    Home intruder stabbed by 83-year-old aikdoka

    POLICE are trying to find a home invader who was badly hurt when he tried to force his way past an 83-year-old black belt home owner last night.

    The home invader, a muscular man in his thirties who may be linked to other burglaries, broke into the high-set home in Gilruth Rd, Kenmore at about 8.30pm.

    Inside were Edwin Dowdy, 83, and his wife Jutta, 76, who have lived in the property in the quiet Kenmore street since 1966.

    When the couple - who both have black belts in the Japanese art of Aikido - realised there was an intruder in the house Mr Dowdy grabbed a knife from the lounge room he had kept for security and went to confront the burglar and warn him he was armed.

    He said he confronted the intruder and told him he had a knife, but the man tried to push past him and ran on to the blade.

    The injured burglar - who was bleeding heavily from a knife wound to his stomach - took two of Mrs Dowdy's handbags and ran on to the balcony and jumped to the ground.

    I really hate it when someone runs onto the blade. LOL

    I can't figure out if he already had the purses in-hand, or grabbed them after he had been gutted. The story was poorly written, but I like the ultimate outcome.
    Police have warned homeowners that while they have a right to defend themselves from intruders only "reasonable" force should be used.

    "Our advice is that people should avoid confronting anybody it's not my advice that people should arm themselves and confront anyone in a house," Detective Inspector for Brisbane West Robert Hitch said.

    "People have a right to take action to defend their own person, to defend their dwelling and to defend other people. The force that they use must be reasonable and must fit the circumstances, it must be considered in relation to the threat that they're facing," Det Insp Hitch said.
    I'm trying to find a nice way to say **** you to Det Insp Hitch; he is a true moron. If I'm in bed and someone breaks into my house in the middle of the night, he isn't coming for tea and cookies. He would be warned one time and if he continued toward me, I would use whatever force necessary to stop the threat.

    Reasonable force, indeed. Det Insp Hitch; this could have been your parents dumbass.

    "Tried to push past him and ran onto the blade." translates from court-worthy statement to "he laughed until I shanked him but only one of us is alive to have a version of it". This is due to legal differences between the US and UK. I have a feeling Detective Inspector Hitch feels much the same way.

    If anything this is further evidence that Aikido is ****.

    A lifetime of study and the end result is that he defered to a simple prison shank move when the chips were down.

    "He ran onto the knife" is the aikido-est way of saying you stabbed someone.

    Now to be fair we don't know if he held him still with a wrist lock while stabbing him.

    If I understand this correctly the guy hasn't even been caught yet...and he still stole ****. So basically the wounds didn't even prevent the burglar from completing part of his task. I would say that falls well into the +1 escalation of force...the aikido guy literally, exactly, did just enough to protect him and his wife without risking trying to get back stolen property. I would say that's textbook. Now the real question, did he use a tanto from his aikido class and/or a proper thrust attack learned in class?!

    If I understand tanto randori correctly, he would've had to start from and return to his hip on the thrust, or it wouldn't count.
