Since the day she was born, Vin Diesel (The Last Witch Hunter) has wanted his daughter Hania Riley, to be equipped with the necessary skills to defend herself. Now that she is 7-years-old, Diesel has turned to his Furious 7 co-star and UFC superstar fighter Ronda Rousey to train her.

"First of all I feel sorry for anyone that has to [date her]," Diesel told WENN (via Star Pulse). "I wouldn’t want that on my worst enemy because I’m just that kind of dad. 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. Because of her ‘auntie’ Ronda Rousey, she is now an orange belt with stripes in Judo. I’m dealing with it early. I’m creating a beast, and I want her to be able to say no means no."

He couldn't have picked a better teacher. Rousey gets a lot of attention for her professional career in mixed martial arts, but her amateur career began with Judo. She competed in the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China, won gold at 2004's World Junior Judo Championships and the 2007 Pan American Games.

Fast 8 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on April 14, 2017.
