Hong Kong Airline Learning Kung Fu

This is probably old news, but interesting to many who might have missed the news where last April, Hong Kong Air have announced they are implementing Wing Chun Training as their compulsory training in addition to Cabin services. (honestly i think the management might have saw that Donnie Yen movie last year)

Hong Kong air stewardess learn martial arts
It was reported that cabin crew have to deal with disruptive passengers, like drunkards and troublemakers.....(or triads!) 3 times a week. (not good PR to announce such thing im sure :P)
Although it may seem like a wild fanboy fantasy where stewardess knows kung fu are usually depicts in Japanese cartoon anime, Wing Chun practioners believed it is believed that its well-suited for cabin crew to use in a small confined space. 
The Deputy  General Manager of Corporate Communications in HK quotes,
"One of the passengers was sick but he was probably drunk and felt unwell -- the crew member attended to him and she realised her fitness was helping her especially because the guy was quite heavy," 
"Normally, a female cabin crew can't handle a fat guy, especially if he's drunk, but because of the training, she can handle it quite easily."
Sir, i think you had a little too much to drink, now get back to your seat before i call in the Wing Chun Bears on you!
