Martial Arts Against Rapists

Some time ago I advocated we should include some kind of martial arts in the school curriculum, to help preventing violent crimes. Well, here is a concrete proof of this idea (Hebrew). A 16 year old girl has been attacked by a potential rapist. Fortunately, the girl is proficient in Karate and with a couple of strikes managed to break the bastards nose and make him run away for his life. As simple as that - she knew how to defend herself, didn't freeze out of panick, and managed to avoid one of the most awful experiences a girl could endure.
I'm just sorry she didn't manage to break his legs, so he could get caught, or maybe his neck, which would have solved the matter completely...
