Washington Post Bullshido
Here's a sampling:
To be fair, the Washington Post is at least careful enough to point out that the instructors are the ones saying eye-gouging is "extremely effective."
After several hours of punching, kicking and disarming imagined attackers, two longtime airline pilots practiced what their instructors called an extremely effective technique to defend an airplane against a terrorist: eye-gouging.
The pilots and instructors lunged at each other and pretended to rake their fingernails down an assailant's face to inflict the maximum damage and possibly pop out an eyeball.
"It doesn't matter how big or how muscle-bound they are," instructor Shawn H. German told the pilots during a recent day-long training session in Alexandria. "If you get them in the eye, they are going to go down."
Great. Makes me feel much safer about our homeland security. Not only are pilots not even showing up for self-defense classes, but they're being taught Teh DEDLIE I-GOUGE!!!11one
Also, got a little McDojo thrown in:
Clearly I need to start teaching the federal government self-defense.
Officials said they also plan to pass out more brochures and put up posters in airports to promote the classes, which cost the agency about $300 per participant.
