FIGHTING ANGELSYour complete guide, analysis and ranking of fighting ability on Charlie’s Angels
While not the most skilled or prolific, Sabrina was a versatile, resourceful, strong, and smart fighter, whose low ranking belies her usually-impressive fighting capabilities. She did not flail into a fight willy-nilly; there was thought and technique behind every blow. Even if she lost the battle overall, Sabrina was likely to do you some damage in the process.
The smart one favored mixing classic Angel fighting technique with a more scrappy street fist-fighting style. A typical opponent needed to look out for right hooks to the face (Strangler) and flurries of impressive punch combinations which would do well in the boxing ring (Run, Stretch). As with Jill, prop improv was another distinct possibility, as the henchman in Vacation learned while getting beaten down with a cane, and as the bad guy realized after being set on fire in Strangler.
Curiously, Sabrina looks the most tense in a fight, as if her fullest concentration is being put to use, but mostly due to it being out of her comfort zone. It’s simply not her category of expertise. This is live action, and her brain is her most often used muscle. Sabrina is the first Angel to be seen on the losing end of an ass-kicking, getting sucker-punched by Sweetcakes herself in Angels in Chains. But her effort is worthy, even plucky, since she may not even be sure what the outcome will be. She acquits herself bravely and you can almost watch and feel her brain working to maneuver and outmaneuver her opponent.

HONORS FOR SABRINA
FIRST ANGEL OWNED
Sabrina's sass earned her a sucker punch from the prison guard in Angels in Chains, making her the first Angel ever to get physically owned.
Sabrina's moves tend to be the closest to something you might see in the boxing ring (or something that could be remotely effective if you tried it in real life).
SEASON 2'S WORST FIGHTER
Though she kicked some butt along the way, Sabrina was the one who lost the most fights this year, outperformed by both her fellow Angels.
SEASON 3'S WORST FIGHTER
Again, Sabrina was the worst-performing Angel when it came to physical confrontations in her final year, losing more fights than her cohorts.
