(Seen on rma.)

A hatchet-wielding man who lured a German tourist from his camper and then chopped his victim twice in the back of the head paid for the brazen attack Saturday morning with his life.

The tourist, described by police sources as a 15-year judo expert, turned the tables on his attacker and killed the thug with his bare hands, despite suffering two axe wounds to the head.

An AP article in the 18 Feb. paper states that American MPs use "judo holds" to search belligerent prisoners.

Eddie Izzard was on The Tonight Show last night and said he had used a jujutsu technique he learned from a book to defend himself. (He had read it when younger but used the technique more recently.) He actually demonstrated on Jay Leno some inside blocks, then an X-block to an arm lock, and the pencil between the fingers trick (which makes me strongly suspect it's this book, if memory serves.)
