Indy woman uses medieval combat training, sword to stop intruder
I swear, I am not making any of this up:
Dolley, standing 5-foot-6, said she immediately attacked, punching him about 10 times and cornering him in her bedroom.
She reached for her gun in a nearby drawer, but she accidentally opened the wrong drawer during the chaos of the moment, so her gun wasn’t there.
She reached for her backup weapon, a Japanese-styled sword called ninjato, which she keeps near her bed. Her intruder crouched in the bedroom as she held him at sword-point until police arrived, she said.
This is exactly how it would have happened if I had been in her place, except I don’t have a gun, or a sword, and I probably would have just hidden under the bed. One question, though – if you’re holding someone at sword point, what if they make a break for it? Do you actually STAB them? I don’t think I’d have the stones for that, so if I’m ever holding you at sword point, you should probably just walk away and call my bluff.
