You definitely don't want to meet John Wood from Cambridgeshire, England in a dark alley. BBC News England has a story posted about the 37-year-old Wood, who fought off four would-be attackers after leaving Frank's Fish and Chip Shop.

Mr. Wood learned the Japanese art of aikido as a kid -- which came in handy last Thursday (2/7) as he walked to his car with his fish and chips in hand.

Four attackers approached Wood and demanded his wallet and cell phone. Wood responded "if you want it, you'll have to come and get it." Upon which he quickly kicked the first two men in the knees and fought a third with his free hand.

The fourth attacker then stabbed Wood in the chest with a screwdriver -- barely missing his liver and lung in the process. Even after being stabbed, Wood was able to wrestle the screwdriver away from the attacker.

What's amazing about all this is that Wood never dropped a bite of his fish and chips. In fact, he ate it on the way to the hospital.
