Stabbed eight times and still fights back!

Sounds like a tough dude!

Stabbing victim learned self-defense in Iraq:
"The victim of a stabbing at a Little Canada convenience store says he learned to defend himself by growing up in Iraq.
Amar Albosaad was attacked by two regular customers, one of whom used a large knife. Police have identified the two suspects as a juvenile and 31-year-old Fernando Marcia, a suspected gang leader.
Albosaad was stabbed approximately eight times during the incident. One of the wounds came within inches of his heart.
"They tried to stab me right here, and here," Albosaad said, pointing to the wounds. "And this one is the big one too."
Albosaad said he learned to fight growing up in Saddam Hussein's Iraq.
"When I was in Iraq, I learned to just fight, you know, to not worry or be afraid or concerned about your life."
He said his attackers seemed surprised when he resisted. "When I grab the knife they said, 'Do not cuts us, let us leave,'" Albosaad said of the suspects. "And I say, 'You can leave now but I will cut you.'"
Albosaad is not concerned that the suspects have not been found. "It doesn't matter if they come back again with a gun, knife or bazooka, I will stand to them. Really."
Albosaad spent only one night in the hospital. He works seven days a week but cannot afford health insurance, although he says he has always refused public assistance.
Police say they are closing in on the suspects."
