Medieval kung-fu: works every time

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indiana woman says her training in medieval combat helped her corner a home intruder.

The Indianapolis Star reports the woman threw punches until she had the man cornered during the Thursday night break-in. She then kept him subdued with a Japanese sword she keeps near her bed.

She says she learned to fight as a teenager in the Society for Creative Anachronism, a group that recreates skills of the Middle Ages. She also skates with roller derby team Naptown Roller Girls.

Police responding to her 911 call arrested a man.
