Motivating soldiers by having them get beat up by a 77-year old grandmother:
Miss Wakabayshi, who stands exactly 5ft tall, looks tiny compared to her charges who are mostly over 6ft.

But the pensioner is a trained master in an array of martial arts disciplines including jujitsu, jojitso, kenjitso, judo, kendo and karate.

...After flooring an opponent she tells them: "Don't think it's unbelievable. The physique doesn't matter." ...Italian military officers hope the experience of being humiliated by Miss Wakabayshi will toughen up their soldiers.
