Filipina uses martial arts skills to foil kidnap attempt

April 21, 2011

A Filipina in Kuwait used her martial arts skills to foil an attempt by two students to kidnap her and “taught them a lesson they will never forget” while she was at it, a Kuwaiti daily reported.

The two private high school students tried to kidnap the Filipina who was on her way to work, but the woman, described as “karate expert”, took them on and the boys fled the scene, Kuwait daily Al Rai reported.

However, she followed the students and called the police after she saw them enter a private school in Farwaniya.

The police, with the assistance of the Filipina, identified the duo and arrested them, the daily said.
