Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:
Last week a suspected purse snatcher was seen being chased by heroic citizens in the shopping and entertainment district of Bukit Bintang (aka Starhill). He might have gotten away in the crowded street, except that one of the people who saw him running was a sometime tai chi practitioner and local MP named Fong Kui Lun.
Fong instinctively met the fleeing suspect with a shoulder strike that allowed the pursuers to catch up to him. Fong said that he “only knows some tai chi movements.” and that his reaction was immediate and instinctive. Fong gave the credit to the other pursuers and was grateful that the victim was able to recover her belongings.
