Every once in a while you’ll hear about a really dumb criminal but one man in Colombia might have taken the cake. Usually the criminal makes some major mistake while they are trying to escape but this Colombian man made his vital mistake before he even started because he chose the wrong place to rob.
A man in Colombia was armed as he tried to rob a karate school. The karate students got to put their training to the test. The students disarmed him and then proceeded to lay a martial arts beatdown on him, Two Fisted Monkey Style! The man has not been put in jail yet, for the moment he resides in the hospital.
A lot of people don’t realize the importance of choosing what place you are going to rob. It’s just not as simple as choosing some random place and breaking in. Here are a few lessons for you aspiring robbers out there.
Lesson number one is to make sure your target of choice is actually worth robbing. Naturally the first option is a bank. Sometimes a bank might be too heavily guarded or you’ll want to rob something smaller to not attract much attention. Maybe a 7-11 would suit you better or perhaps break into a house in an expensive neighborhood. What does a karate school have to steal though? This Colombian man should’ve aimed higher.
Let’s pretend for a minute like there was some reason to rob this particular karate school. Maybe the school is really expensive and they are so sure about their karate skills that they leave their cash lying around. Maybe this is an upper class karate school with very rich people. Or maybe the Colombian just wanted a sweet pair of nunchucks. Whatever the reason was lesson number two is that if you can break in at night when the target is closed. This might be difficult with a bank that is locked up tight but I doubt a karate school has the best security in the world.
Here is the third and final lesson. Listen closely because this is the most important lesson of them all. When you decide on a target you’re going to rob don’t choose a building that is full of people training to be able to kill you with their feet and hands! I took karate and I remember my teachers telling me karate is not for fighting, it’s for self-defense. Well when you stick a gun in someone’s face it becomes self-defense and they are free to lay the smackdown.
Do they not have televisions in Colombia? Has this guy never seen Karate Kid? Those Cobra Kai guys were some mean dudes. Remember the scene where all the Cobra Kai guys were dressed like skeletons and they chased poor little Ralph Macchio and kicked his butt? Karate students show no mercy. They will sweep the leg if they need to. I mean when you mess with Karate students you’re messing with William Zabka and nobody messes with William Zabka. Nobody.
This is a message to all you future robbers out there. Don’t rob karate schools. If you choose to rob a karate school you should either expect to get your butt kicked or you better have the freaking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as backup.
