If Brian Khun had not forgotten his martial arts uniform at home, his day would have been far different.

Thursday morning Khun was traveling between the two martial arts studios where he teaches kickboxing and MMA fighting when he decided to go home and pick up his uniform.

With his 5-year-old daughter right behind him, Brian entered his San Jose home to find a burglar in his dining room.

Brian says the man stood up and said, “Hey, this guy let me in.”

Worried for his daughter’s safety and seeing a pry bar in the man’s hand, Brian says he grabbed the burglar.

“I grabbed him to take him outside, he didn’t want to go, so then we started fighting.”

Brian says he delivered several punches, kneed him, put his head through a window, then dragged him outside in a headlock.

Neighbors, hearing a commotion, came outside and called 9-1-1.

“He was holding him down, waiting for police,” said neighbor Patricia McHarris, “it was pretty scary.”

McHarris has high praise for her neighbor calling his actions amazing.  San Jose Police arrested the man whose face was bloodied and swollen.

Khun says he wouldn’t recommend others try to confront a burglar if it can be avoided.

“Just sort of relieved that it ended the way that it did. That it didn’t end badly for me or my family,” said Khun.

After only being open since January Smash Gyms Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu won the Team Championship at the San Jose Open on July 30th 2011. Smash Gyms competitors won eight Gold medals, two Silvers and Two Bronze medals today at Independence High School in east San Jose.  Smash Gyms took home the San Jose Open BJJ Team Trophy in one of our first tournaments as a team. Amazing performance by all the competitors! Many schools combined in an effort to gain more points to win the team trophy but since every one of our competitors medaled in the event we were still able to win the team trophy with less than half of the competitors of some other schools. Bay Area Brazilian Jiu-jitsu schools from San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Milpitas sent competitors. There were also competitors from all over California.
