Fight Like a Girl–
Priscilla Dang was out for a jog in Vancouver when she was groped by two young thugs.
That’s when her Kung Fu training came in and she smacked them in the face.
‘I think they knew they messed with the wrong girl’
A Vancouver woman said she used her martial art skills to defend herself after she says she was groped by one stranger and verbally harassed by another last week.
Priscilla Dang was out for a run in her own neighborhood when she says the incident happened on Padden Parkway between 94th and Andresen Road last Friday.
Two teens came up to her on their bikes.
“One went in front and made eye contact with me like a smirk, like I thought he was saying ‘hi.’ The next thing I knew I was pretty much groped on my bottom behind left side,” Dang said.
She fought back and defended herself using her training in martial arts that she’s been studying for 18 years. She’s been mastering the skills of Kung Fu from her older brother. The family owns Summit Wushu Academy in Clackamas that teaches Chinese martial arts.
“So I grabbed him and said, ‘You need to apologize, and he did,’” Dang said.
But it escalated when she says the second teen started swearing at her.
“It just made something snap in me – it’s not OK. It’s so disrespectful,” Dang said.
That’s when her Kung Fu background really kicked in as she punched him twice in the face.
“He started coming in for a few, and I was lucky enough to dodge his shots. I came up for another one and I got him good, and I think that upset him,” she said.
After the second hit, Dang said the teen pulled out a four-inch blade.
“That was when my instinct came in to back off – don’t get so close because he might grab me,” she said.
Cops were then called and the two thugs were arrested.
They picked on the wrong girl.
