Mr. Miyagi would be so proud.

A real-life version of Karate Kid played out in Maryland this past Saturday when 8-year-old Jacob Soliz-Amaya awoke to find his father’s ex-girlfriend trying to smother and beat him.

Without hesitation, Jacob jumped into action, putting to use self-defense techniques he learned in karate.

“Well I head butted her while she wasn’t looking, so I ran out,” he told the local news.

Jacob was able to break free and get to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Suspect Helen Marie Newsome was later caught by authorities and has admitted to the crime.

Newsome was allegedly upset after Jacob’s father ended their relationship and hid in a spare bedroom for 12 hours before the attack.

“She tried to hurt him by hurting me because he loves me more than anything.”

As for Jacob? He suffered a minor head wound from the head butting, but is recovering well after getting eight stitches.
