Teen sisters Juane and Nicci Grobler, both jiu-jitsu trained and very street-smart – put up such a gutsy fight against four ruthless, armed hijackers on April 22 2009 in Germiston, thus saving a friend’s life, that the two Afrikaans girls now feature as shining examples for farm-women in Montana, USA to follow. Their fight will be described in the US National Rifle Association’s programme ‘Refuse to be a Victim’, in Montana on 17 Sept 2011…
The teenagers, Juane 16, left and Nicci, 17, used their street-smarts and their well-honed jiu-jitsu skills to fight off four armed male hijackers when attacked in their car in Germiston, near Johannesburg on August 22 2009 (election day) at around 7.30am. The girls fought back as hard as they could against four armed black men to stop them from abducting one of their teen friends. Nicci held the driver of the gang in a head-lock while he was trying to drive off in her car, and was dragged 300 metres until her friend was thrown from the car. She survived bruised and with a broken nose. Two girls, pitted against four ruthless, dangerous criminal males.
