A 26-year-old model named Kirsty Grace was in Birmingham, England last month to audition for their Miss Universe pageant.
And as she was getting out of her car, a guy came up and tried to steal her purse. But here’s what he didn’t know: Kirsty is trained in Krav Maga. (Pronounced krahv-meh-gah.)
It’s a type of martial arts they use in the Israeli army . . . and it’s specifically designed so you can defend yourself in situations like the one Kirsty was in.
So even though she was in four-inch high heels, she managed to punch the guy in the face and kick him in the knee . . . which got him to let go of her purse and run away.
Then she went to the audition and nailed it . . . so she’ll be in the pageant next month.
The cops are trying to track down the guy who mugged her.
