‘Kung Fu’ makcik delivers the smackdown on man who tried stealing her phone

When a WWE episode happens IRL.

INDONESIA – A video of a woman overpowering a man who allegedly tried to steal her phone has recently made rounds on the Internet, leaving netizens in awe of the woman’s absolute showing of a beatdown.

In the video, the woman is seen grabbing a handful of the man’s shirt before throwing him to ground and proceeds to slap and kick him.

Another man then appears and tries in vain to calm the woman down by pushing her away from the alleged thief. But this only seemed to anger her more as she shouted and kicked the man’s head repeatedly.

Local police confirm the incident

The incident is believed to have taken place in front of a shop in Desa Simpang Tiga at the Mataraman district in Bandar Banjar, Indonesia, reported Utusan TV.
