HAWAII — A 13-foot shark got the surprise of its life when its "dinner'' turned out to be an expert in martial arts.
Mariko Haugen was swimming in Hawaii when the shark came into view.
"All of a sudden, it was like Hollywood,'' said the Folsom, Calif., woman.
"You see the big jaws coming at you.''
She channeled her inner Bruce Lee, "gave it her best Tae Kwan Do black belt punch in the nose'' and it turned tail and fled, said her husband, Don.
She escaped with a few bites but was in good spirits, savoring her victory.
