Just call her G.I. Nikki.

This summer, Gov. Nikki Haley showed off her shooting abilities during a tour of a Columbia arms maker.

Now her office posted a video of the guv breaking a board and receiving an honorary black belt.

"I loved that. It was awesome," the guv said after her open-handed punch.

UPDATE

The karate chop video is going viral: Gawker / USA Today / Politico / Talking Points Memo
