Got this from Politico:
You better think twice before messing with Gov. Nikki Haley; she’s a black belt.
On Wednesday the South Carolina governor was presented with an honorary fourth-degree black belt. She was also shown breaking a board with an open-handed punch in a video released by her office.
“I earned an honorary 4th degree Black Belt today! Check out this video,” Haley wrote on her official Facebook page. “We are fans of Tae Kwon Do in South Carolina.”
You know, if my sensei were still around (“Bow to your sensei!“), he might express a bit of doubt about the way that rather gentle heel-of-the-hand tap causing that board to break into three pieces, but I guess the gov has just learned to channel her chi in a particularly effective manner.
