Badass 8-Year-Old Girl Uses Kung Fu Move Called ‘Cheetah Paw’ To Stop Would-Be Kidnapper

An 8-year-old girl saved herself and her little brother from an attempted kidnapping by using a “kung fu” move to stop her the aggressor in his tracks.

The girl credits the martial arts move with keeping her from being kidnapped when a man broke into her San Diego County home while she was sleeping over the weekend.

The suspect removed a ground floor window screen in the early hours of the morning and snuck into the house. He walked upstairs to the second floor bedroom she shares with her 6-year-old brother. The man began to carry her down the stairs and when the little girl realized what was going on, she used the “Cheetah Paw” to escape his grip.

“You go like this — Ha!” the girl said in an interview after the ordeal. She threw a punch with a slightly closed fist. The move startled the guy and he let go of her and fled the house. Her parents have since had a security system installed.

The suspect is still at large.
