Nice job by the flight attendant.

I think he's gonna have a tough time in the big house when the inmates find out he got beat up by a girl

Good for her. If I were there, she'd get a high-five from me.

I think the passenger watched too many Karate Kid movies and met reality on the plane.
Well first before I high fived her she should probably go wash her hands cause they dont say if he pulled his pants up before the fight, but then yes I would have said good job

I loved the news flick; aside from the fool getting what he deserved.
For one thing they showed pretty much how I train, and it is certainly how I was taught to apply a choke for real.
Interestingly , she was identified as a black belt in Taekwando. The little bit in the news flick looked exactly like how I train in Krav. Well, I've often been told that in the end the arts "are all the same."
What they didn't describe well enough is how she maneuvered to get that choke on him. I don't see how she got to the back of him---even after jumping up on a seat. I'd love to see that re-enacted in full to see how she actually pulled it off. This was on an airplane for heaven's sake. The aisles are tiny. I wonder if she spun him around when parrying the elbow he threw? Again, I just can't quite picture in my mind how she accomplished this.
They said (she said?) that after he threw an elbow she applied an arm lock and tried to get his other arm before applying the choke. Again, I would love to see a re-enactment. I can't quite picture what she did in my mind.
America needs more moms, wives and daughters like her.
High five from me too!
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
A very cool lady, she gets a high five from me too. If I were on that plain she would have been getting a steak dinner for her and her hubby for not being a sheep.
