This man in Jiamusi, China, deserves father of the year award as his intuition and kung fu-inspired reflexes helped thwart his daughter's kidnapping.
CCTV footage of the incident shows a hooded man following the father-daughter duo as they browsed market stalls.
As they prepare to leave, the man gets closer to the child and tries to grab her.
However, the quick-thinking dad wastes no time and gives a powerful kick to the would-be kidnapper's crotch, thereby saving his daughter from the crook's clutches.
The Sun reports traders in the market, where the incident occurred, had reported a hooded man who had tried to snatch children before.
Child abduction is an epidemic in China. A 2015 BBC report stated approximately 20,000 children are abducted in the country each year.
