Vin Diesel’s Daughter Is Learning Self-Defense From ‘Auntie’ Ronda Rousey
Because who else would he ask?
Nobody would mess with Vin Diesel’s daughter. With Vin as her old man, this seven year old could probably kick all of our asses… and then some. To make matters worse, Vin has conscripted a certain UFC bantamweight and abiding Maxim favorite to train his daughter in self-defense.
Of course we’re talking about Ronda Rousey.
In an interview with WENN, Diesel revealed that he asked Rousey—a Furious 7 co-star—to give his daughter some one-on-one self-defense lessons. Really, who else would you tap to teach your daughter how to take no prisoners?
“First of all I feel sorry for anyone that has to (date her). I wouldn’t want that on my worst enemy because I’m just that kind of dad,” Diesel told WENN. “I’ve been thinking about this since the day I cut the umbilical cord and because of that I made a decision early on that I was going to do everything in my power to empower her to handle it herself.”
Diesel said his daughter Hania is already an orange belt with stripes in Judo, which is damn lethal for a seven year old. It’s all thanks to “Auntie Ronda.” Diesel said, “I’m creating a beast and I want her to be able to say no means no.”
We give it up to our man Vin. Rather than sheltering his daughter from the real world, he’s preparing her to take them on headfirst and empowering her in the process. Given Rousey’s stellar track record, we’re sure anyone who tries to mess with Hania is a sitting duck.
One question remains: How can we sign up for classes?
