Amanda Knox

I'm Learning Jew-Jitsu!

11/1/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1110111_amanda_knox

Amanda Knox is learning the way of the Jew ... training in the art of Krav Maga ... a self-defense fighting style born in Israel.

Knox was out in Seattle yesterday, when she stopped by a Krav studio -- where she wailed on a punching bag and learned how to fight her way out of a choke hold.

It's understandable why Knox would want to learn how to defend herself -- considering she was the most hated person in Italy, before a judge found her not guilty of murdering her college roommate Meredith Kercher.

FYI -- Kercher was murdered 4 years ago today. One man, Rudy Guede, still remains behind bars ... convicted of participating in her death.

Only Americans and Italian azzhole judge think she is not guilty. In Europe we know she's. F!cking skank murder. And you continue to give her press meanwhile the parents of Meredith continue to feel the pain.

Absolute stupid headline. Self defense courses coming out of Israel are not only rather easy to learn (though VERY tough to master) but they are also some of the most deadly. Grats to her...too many nutcases out there that might try to use her to play out their agenda.

Maybe she'll knock one of your snotty paps on their butts one day.

Rudy Guede deserves a retrial just like Knox had. They said he confessed but the prosecutors and investigators were shady. Knox and her ex-boyfriend are free chillin while this man is behind bars like "WTF."

Amanda KNox is about as innocent as OJ and Casey Anthony.
Just read the judges' report from the first trial.

Make no mistake, she did it. It is only a matter of time until she unravels and gives herself up.

One can live a lie only so long.

Over the next few years, details will emerge of the extent to which AK & RS were railroaded by Perugian Police. Witnesses for the defense were silenced (see Elisabetta Lana & the fake bomb hoax), evidence was destroyed (3 hard-drives were fried & RS's laptop files overwritten), witnesses were paid to fabricate stories (Kokomani), false evidence was leaked to the press (luminol photo), & extremely weak evidence promoted (DNA on bra clasp & wrong knife). Why? Because Perugian Police were embarrassed about failing to arrest Rudy Guede for 3 BnE knife crimes & failing to respond to reports of him in the Lana's garden 1 hour after the murder. They were also embarrassed after announcing to the world 'case closed' with a fantasy orgy story. Italians are well known for their preoccupation with sex & corrupt law enforcement. Britain is equally well known for it's dodgy tabloid media- don't believe what you read.

She is totally innocent. All the physical evidence points to Guede as the murder. Someone suggested reading the verdict from the first trial as evidence of her guilt. I say read it carefully and you'll see it really points to their innocence. The judge makes so many erroneous assumptions it almost looks like he was hoping the verdict would be overturned on the appeal.
