    BY R.S.N. MURALI
    SEREMBAN: Four armed robbers fled for their lives when they inadvertently broke into the home of a Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) coach at Taman Bukit Intan here.

    The 28-year-old Muay Thai coach John Yong fought off the four Indonesian robbers when they broke into his home at 2.30am yesterday.

    Yong, who was woken up by the screams of his 52-year-old mother, rushed to her aid and saw that two of the robbers were busy tying up her hands while the rest were ransacking her room.

    Yong immediately went for them.

    He kicked the two robbers who were busy tying up his mother.

    They fell to the ground but the other two robbers retaliated by slashing Yong’s right arm and chin with a meat cleaver. He also sustained a shoulder wound after being stabbed with a screwdriver.

    Undeterred, Yong continued attacking the robbers, injuring them all.

    Realising that they were unable to take on the martial arts exponent, the four fled with only a mobile phone.

    Yong’s family members rushed him to a private hospital here for treatment.

    When met at the hospital, Yong said he wanted to teach the robbers a lesson as he was infuriated with the way they had treated his mother.

    “Luckily, my eight years' experience in boxing came in handy,” he said.

    Yong said he fought with all his might against the four robbers, adding: “At one point, I felt like the silver screen hero, Jackie Chan, when I took on the four.”

    OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Abdullah said police had launched a manhunt for the robbers.

    You've been here how long, are a mod, and you don't even know where to put your **** Zero Point?!?!?

    Damn! :D


    Funny guy, maybe he should have gone and kicked the guys with the freaking meat cleaver?
    And maybe those guys should have thought of shutting up his mom first?

    You have a multiple armed attacker situation and the MT dude prevailed.

    This proves that Muay Thai is the superior striking art. =)

    Muay Thai has always been considered the premier striking art.

    I got this btw, from MMA.TV
