67-Year-Old Who Calls Herself “Lady Ninja” and Trains to “Eye of the Tiger” Took Down an Intruder
You really never, EVER can tell who has the eye of the tiger. Who likes the thrill of the fight. Who can rise up to the challenge of their rivals.
A 59-year-old guy named Donald Prestwood broke into a senior apartment complex in Fontana, California earlier this week. He seemed drunk and said he was looking for his girlfriend. Then he busted into his girlfriend's 81-year-old mother's room.
He started attacking her in her wheelchair, and she yelled for help.
And 67-year-old Lorenza Marrujo heard her two floors up. It turns out that Lorenza trained in jujitsu from 1981 to 2007, got a black belt, and calls herself "Lady Ninja." Oh... and she says she used to train to "Eye of the Tiger".
She ran down to the apartment, saw Donald going after her elderly neighbor, and that's when she attacked. She bent his fingers back to get him off her friend, then elbowed him in his sternum, and took him down to the ground and held him until the cops got there.
Lorenza is 4-foot-11 and 100 pounds. Donald is 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He was arrested for elder abuse.
Lorenza says her only regret is that her jujitsu skills are a little rusty. "I would have done more damage to him."
Way to kick some ass, Lorenza!!! You really DO have the eye of the tiger.
