The Week contest: Air fight
This week's question: With incidents of sky rage rocketing, flight attendants are being offered free training on how to subdue unruly airline passengers with eye pokes, double ear slaps, and groin kicks. If a self-defense expert were to create a new marshal art to be used by flight attendants, what could the fighting style be named?
