So Yahoo News posted an Article about a 30 day course offered in China for 3,000$ that will transform any women in to an efficient bodyguard. According to this article these women are not allowed to date until after they turn 28 years old; my guess is that they are probably too deadly for relationships anyway. Headlocks and teh deadly are involved. Any thoughts?
"In China, it's now young women who are training to be the "must have" mercenaries - or bodyguards - to the country's wealthiest.
There are now at least 300 billionaires and almost 1 million millionaires in China. For many of them, having women serve as their private protection - not men - is the ultimate status symbol.
Answering this rising demand is Chen Yougqing, who once worked as a bodyguard for superstar Jackie Chan. Sporting a deep tan and tight Armani T-shirts, Chen is part-Gen. Patton, part-self promoter, with his own personal cameraman.
At his Genghis Security Academy in Sanya, which Chen said is the first training camp of its kind in China, men and women train side-by-side for 30 days to become professional security details. Blood, sweat and tears are on the syllabus, but brute force - and no complaining - is what it takes to survive.
Women here learn how to put attackers in a headlock, pin them to the ground and deliver a solid right hook. Hand-to-hand combat training is key for any bodyguard in China, because the country has severe restrictions on gun ownership.
Despite the physical risk, women from across China want in. Wang Yalan is one of them.
At 24 years old, she dropped out of medical school to come to Genghis.
"I feel like it is my true calling," she said. "It has more of a sense of justice."
Although Wang struggles through almost every exercise, she is one of the many who are happy to pay the hefty $3,000 tuition and follow the rules. That means no dating until after age 28. Chen, who is 29, said it's a distraction.
But he is so confident he can turn anyone into a bodyguard that he challenges me to take his course."

Yeah, I read that too. That chick is going to be dissapointed when she realizes that being a body guard has no sence of justice. You are just a walking meat shield. But whatever. Not sure why having a chick bodyguard is such a status symbol.
Combatives training log.

Also, 3,000 dollars is a fuckload of money for a 30 day course, especially in China.
This smacks of the work of a bullshit artist.
The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.
What's the point?
