A Big Welcome To Hammer's Muay Thai Kickboxing Martial Arts & Fitness Centre From Mark “Hammer” Castagnini, Founder and Head Instructor of Hammer's Gym in Blackburn

Fighting spirit earns assault victim a lesson with Dolph Lundgren


THE Melbourne woman who fought off a street thug, then bravely appeared bruised and battered in an online video just hours later, has earned a one-on-one with a Hollywood heavyweight.

Property management consultant Clare Verrall enjoyed a few fighting tips from Expendables actor Dolph Lundgren after more than one million people around the world watched her plea for women to take self-defence lessons.

Ms Verrall had been walking her dog in Windsor when she was targeted in a random attack, but kicked the assailant in the groin and left him sprawled on the footpath.

”I was walking with my headphones in and I knew that I shouldn’t be doing that,” Ms Verrall said.
