Karate student Jannine Ramirez kicks out — literally — intruder found in her home
Karate student kicks out — literally — intruder found in her home
FRESNO, CALIF.— A California man got an early morning beat down after being pummeled by a karate student who found him drunk in her bathroom.
Jannine Ramirez had just won a karate competition when she arrived at her Fresno apartment early Sunday and heard someone in the bathroom. Ramirez, 20, kicked down her bathroom door, then kicked the intruder through a shower door.
She continued with an onslaught of kicks and punches until Wilberto Zapata, 18, was outside her apartment.
"We didn't recognize him," Ramirez said. "Me and my mom live in the apartment, so no guy whatsoever should be in there."
Zapata recently moved into the apartment complex and mistakenly went into the wrong apartment unit, police told the Fresno Bee ( http://bit.ly/TqOStf ).
Ramirez has a yellow belt — a step above beginner — and expects to be promoted to orange belt next month at during a competition in Fresno
She has been a karate and Muay Thai kick-boxing student for a year. Saturday was her first competition.
"I was actually more nervous in the competition than I was trying to get this intruder out of my house," said Ramirez, who attends Fresno City College and plans to study physical therapy at Fresno State University. "I literally kicked him all the way through my house."
Police said Zapata was drunk and thought he had broken into his own apartment. He was cited for unlawful entry into a home and released. A phone listing for Zapata could not be found.
Ramirez has no regrets.
"I had to protect my mom and protect myself and get this intruder out of my house," she said. "He sort of did deserve it. If he hadn't broken into my house, it wouldn't have happened."
Wonder if she trained at Heredia's Muay Thai Kickboxing and Shotojuku Karate?
A long-haired hippie friend of mine lives near a popular drinking hole near the beach. One night, he left his door unlocked, and in the early AM he woke to a guy sitting on his bed, stroking his thigh as he laid there. He starts freaking out, and the drunk guy casually stands up and exclaims "Whoa, you're a dude!". The other roommate wakes up (another long haired guy) and the drunk says "whoa, you're a dude too!".
The drunk tries to wander off but is beaten up by one of them, who apparently laid a beatdown with his masseuse skills, prodding pressure points from a full mount.
That woman needs a field promotion to orange belt.
Looks like Ms Ramirez didn't get the "krotty-don't-work" memo.
It should be taught in primary school, along with Newton's other laws.
anyone else catch this little tid bit?

She'd just won a Karate competition though. I bet every punch was a perfectly executed gyakuzuki with kiai.

I also caught the fact that this wasn't actually on the street and that it was it was an underage person that had been drinking.
