Karate Kick - level 1
A man steals in a shop. He wants to run away. The shop assistant shouts at the man.
An 84-year old man sees this situation. He decides to stop the thief. He uses karate. He kicks the thief to the ground.
He is successful in stopping the thief. He also falls down. His wife is not happy. She comes to him. She tells him that what he did was dangerous. Luckily, the man is fine and police arrest the thief.
The only other negative thing for the man is the fact that his wife did not speak to him for four hours.
Difficult words: did (past form of “do”), dangerous (when you might get hurt or die), arrest (take to a police station).
