ha ha!

If this video doesn't make your day, you're beyond saving.

The audio-free images, from a CCTV camera, show a man attempting to steal a cell phone from a much smaller woman. What the man didn't count on was that the woman would fight back—and fight back with actual technique.

The article labels her fighting style as "Systema," about which I know nothing. Read about Systema, which is apparently a Russian martial art, here.

All credit goes to a tweet from Dave Trowbridge.

ADDENDUM: OK, OK—many of the comments beneath the video claim the video's fake. I'll let you decide. Fake or not, it's great TV, and compared to the technique I saw from the fight I broke up last month, the woman actually looks as if she knows what she's doing.
