(Scroll down for video) In a weird incident, a man protected himself and his favorite dinner of fish and chips, while being attacked by four men.
An owner of a pub, managed to fight off four thieves who attacked him while holding his dinner in one hand.
John Wood, 37, was stabbed in the stomach with a screwdriver as he fought against the gang, but surprisingly his fish dinner arrived home without even one piece missing.
Wood, who owns a pub in Cambridgeshire, UK, put his training of martial arts to good use. Wood, learned as a teenager which helped him many years later to fend off his attackers.
The muggers, demanded his wallet and cell phone, but Wood, who is trained in the Japanese art of Aikido was not going down without a fight.
Wood, was able to kick two of the men in the knees, while fighting the third with his one free hand. The fourth male stabbed him in the chest with a screwdriver but Wood wrestled that away too.
After driving home to eat the his dinner, the victim went to the hospital as a precautionary measure.
Fish and chips are very much loved in the UK. They were declared as the national dish of Britain.
