Woman Uses Medieval Training to Thwart Intruder
A 43 year old Indianapolis woman heard a man's voice in the hallway of her house early this past Friday morning, which sent her flying out of bed in search of her hand gun. She didn't find the gun, but she did find a Japanese sword she'd been given years ago as collateral on a loan. Of course. She says her Medieval combat training and her Roller Derby skills helped her use the sword to subdue the 30 year old man until police got there to haul him away.
