Flight attendants given lessons in martial arts

Self-defence lessons are not an obvious employee benefit but for flight attendants wanting to fend off the wandering hands of drunken passengers they make perfect sense. 

Chinese attendants are being given classes in the martial art Wing Chun, which will enable them to knock their aggressor out cold within seconds.

Flight attendants have to deal with at least three incidences a week when lusty drunks try to grope them.

Wing Chun instructor Sifu Lu Heng told the press: “It is for their own safety and the safety of the other passengers that they learn how to defend themselves. 

“This kind of kung fu works best at very close range so it is ideal for a plane.”
