IMO the only sport that well carries over into self defence is western boxing.

Maybe not for someone who has trained extensively for street fighting, but certainly over the average Joe.
I'm not suggesting Judo for the airline stewardesses though. For one thing, they'd have to cut their pretty manicured nails.

Flight attendants both need the ability to deal with violent people in the air without backup and they need to learn it quickly. These people are not devoting years of training. Combatives training will not only give them the basics, but it will also pressure test them. It's designed to be taught to busy people (soldiers) who have to spend phenomenal amounts of time learning other things. I got into combatives myself simply because I am not and cannot be a "martial artist". I just don't have the time. I'm not lazy...I just legitimately have too many other things that I'm doing. They're in the same boat.
