A martial arts-trained man fought off four machete-wielding robbers who forced their way into his home demanding money.

The masked men broke into David Pugh’s Solihull home on Tuesday also armed with baseball bats and golf clubs.

Mr Pugh, 55, who is trained in Krav Maga, said “instinct took over” when he found them attacking his 17-year-old son – and his 20-week-old puppy.

Police told him they were shocked by the level of violence used by the men.

He later took a graphic photograph of himself to highlight the extent of the injuries he suffered. [Warning: Picture follows]

The sales manager told the BBC he heard a “really big crash” and thought his son’s Rottweiler puppy had knocked something over.

He left his bedroom at his home on Lugtrout Lane, Catherine de Barnes, and found two men attacking his son, who had his girlfriend with him.

Mr Pugh said he then helped rescue his son while also fighting off the other two men.

The father-of-two said the men kept shouting: “Where’s the money? Give us your money.”

“I was getting dizzy. I took quite a few blows to the head,” he added.

He said the men did not take anything but “had done their homework” and avoided all the CCTV cameras.

The puppy, Zeus, was hit by the attackers and “bolted” through an open door.

Zeus has since been treated at a vets for a large cut and pneumonia.

Mr Pugh said police told him there had been a growing trend of “home invasion” style robberies.

“It leaves a nasty feel around the house. It all happened so fast,” he added

“They [police] were shocked by the level of violence used.”

West Midlands Police said officers were alerted to reports of a break-in at 03:09 on Tuesday “after a group of men had forced their way into the property and attacked the occupants”.

Investigations are continuing and the force said it had carried out house-to-house inquiries and recovered items for forensic analysis.

Krav Maga is as a self-defence system that was originally developed for the Israeli military.

Her parents were the Swedish king Gustavus Adolphus and his German wife, Maria Eleonora, had already had two daughters—a stillborn princess in 1620, and then the first Princess Christina, who was born in 1623 and died the following year.3] Excited expectation surrounded Maria Eleonora’s third pregnancy in 1626. When the baby was born, it was first thought to be a boy as it was “hairy” and screamed “with a strong, hoarse voice.”she later wrote in her autobiography that, “Deep embarrassment spread among the women when they discovered their mistake.” The king, though, was very happy, stating, “She’ll be clever, she has made fools of us all!”6] From most accounts, Gustav Adolf appears to have been closely attached to his daughter, and she appears to have admired him greatly.

  16. Las pastillas del parche, eso es lo que son para mi, un parche para la disfunción eréctil, no tengo ninguna enfermedad, estoy sano, no tengo ningún defecto físico o malformación, soy joven ¿porque para algo tan natural como es tener una relación sexual tengo que depender de eso? Pero también implica que se debe disponer de la libertad para que las enfermedades orgánicas y otras deficiencias no interfieran con la función sexual y reproductiva. Una erección se logra cuando el conjunto de tejidos esponjosos del pene, es decir, los cuerpos cavernosos, se relaja para permitir el flujo de sangre que resulta en la expansión y la firmeza del pene.
