While the quest for finding the ultimate martial art and artist is never complete in this particular case it was a relief any martial arts studio was nearby.
According to wsoctv report:
Police said August Williams, 46, is accused of following a woman into a karate school on Statesville Avenue after he attempted to snatch her just before 9 p.m.
“He was just punching at everything from walls to cars, everything,” said Randall Ephraim, sensei at Bushiken Karate Charlotte Dojo.
Once Williams got inside, police said an instructor fended him off and he ran out of the studio. Williams was later taken into custody.
Ephraim was able to get control of Williams, but he said it wasn’t easy.
“He was very strong – very, very strong, he said. “He weighed at least 200 (pounds) and some change, under the influence — very strong powerful individual.”
“It’s a great thing the people in there were able to help defend her, extremely lucky that it was a karate studio,” Capt. JD Thomas of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department told WSOC9 News.
