It’s not Kung Fu Panda but kung fu-armed cabin crews

It’s not Kung Fu Panda but for Hong Kong Airlines cabin crews, they learn wing chun, a form of kung fu that is characterised by short, sharp movements to deal with air rage.


The airline’s deputy general manager for corporate communications, Eva Chan, said to South China Morning Post that all staff has been invited to enrol in the training but made it compulsory for cabin crews. On average, the airline has three incidents with disruptive passengers every week.


The idea to incorporate martial arts training came during a company function when senior manages watched a wing chun demonstration and a dance performance by cabin crew. A tailor made course was developed for the airline.


Maybe every cabin crew should learn a form of martial arts so that passengers with preying eyes and itchy fingers can deal with them, swiftly. But swift martial arts movements reminds me of Martin Yan’s chicken massage.
