    Karate girl, 11, fights off attacker in Bristol

    Karate girl, 11, fights off attacker in Bristol

    AN 11-year-old girl used her karate skills to fight off a man who attacked her as she was walked to school.
    Jade Pidden noticed a man following her in a secluded lane in Stockwood. The brave schoolgirl tried to run away but the man grabbed her by her rucksack, and that's when Jade's three years of karate training kicked in.

    She used all her strength to elbow him in the chest and punch him in the face, causing her shocked attacker to flee. Jade has been practising karate for three years at the Bristol Martial Arts Academy, in Hengrove, Bristol.

    The attacked has been described as white, 6ft tall, slim, in his early 20s, with light brown hair and a long fringe. I don't know how they got this but police said he was wearing a blue hoodie with white writing, tight jeans and black and white Nike trainers. He might be holding one hand to his eye as well.

    Anyone with information should contact the authorities through the local police department or anonymously on Crimestoppers 0800 555111.

    Karate as it was meant to be, punching people in the face. Fair play to her.

    I've yet to see a Kyokushin dojo that doesn't train face punches...

    Anyhow, no matter what this girl trains in, I'm glad this young girl is safe!

    Good for her! You go girl! Must have been terrifying for the wee girl even so.

    Hope they catch the perpetrator soon - he sounds like a very dangerous man.

    I hope some massive angry **** with a hammer finds him first.

    Well done to the girl.

    Sweet! I think most people(females especially) should learn to defend themselves against these kinds of a-holes.
