Incredibly the fisherman used his karate skills to scare the bear off while he was fishing. He escaped with his life but was still treated for injuries caused by the massive bear. I would never recommend you test your karate abilities out on a beast of an animal, especially not a bear. Though, in life or death situations it is always good to know you have the appropriate skills to see another day!
Perhaps you might find yourself in situation where your life may be tested, will you be prepared?! Perhaps its time you learn the valuable lessons of martial arts! Still not convinced?! Next time you go fishing you may have wished you were! Also note: the fisherman is highly experience in his training, you do not learn to fight a bear overnight.

**In the event of coming across a bear – please be smart, avoid their space and alert the proper authorities of your sighting!**
Until next time be safe, be alert!
