ok all you martial artists, what do you think of this?
My advice is to run.
lets say you cant get away and are surrounded
I'd get on my back and light a fart on fire.
Rotating on your back (like they do in Breakdance) AND lighting your fart could be even better.
Good to know in case I ever get attacked by choreographed ninjas who wait for you to signal their next move.
This is correct.
Act like you're completely insane and fight like a hockey player.
That would be one time it would be nice to be a suicide bomber .
I tell my wife they insulted her shoes. Then I close my eyes so I don't have to witness the ensuing mayhem.
Life's a lot easier when you spend your time limiting the maximum number of enemies you'll fight simultaneously than preparing to defend yourself against them.
Best way to get out of that kinda brawl is described by Paul Kaye's kung fu instructional video.
Edit - Link removed, probably a bit too coarse for TB.
Many moons ago I was confronted with 5 guys who decided they were going to kick my butt. They had me against a wall were I couldn't run so I told them they would surely get me, but I'd surely kill the first one of them I got my hands on. I said you will surely kill me as well, but one of you will die with me so decide which one of you wants to be the one and we'll get this over with. It was the most brazen bluff I ever tried in my life but it worked. It all started over who's turn it was on the one pool table in the bar we were hanging out in and they decided to go on back in and allow the other folks who had money up to play out their turn. As soon as I unlaxed enough to get the heck outta there, I booked and never looked back.
It was a typical case of them talking each other up to where pride would not allow them to back off, and I got picked as the one to take their beating. Their attitude changed when I convinced them it was gonna be much more than just a little friendly Friday night asskickin.
That sounds like a tactic I would try to use.
That video is a joke. A group of attackers never all punch at once in a choreographed attack, on the street.
Simple. Don't get into that situation. Hasn't happened to me in 63 years...because I stay out of places where it might.
Idealistic and unrealistic.
Wouldn't mind seeing that. PM?
I'm telling you guys, Paul Kaye's kung fu instructional video shows realistic handling of street fights, much better than the video in the OP...
I studied martial arts years ago. And I have been in that situation twice (3 guys once and 4 guys once). I have a theory (that has worked both times). The more of them there are, the more it becomes about psychology (and less about brute force). When faced by multiple "attackers" (for lack of a better word) I quickly determined who was the alpha male. Take him out and the others will run. Thankfully it worked both times.
Once I was able to talk myself out of having to deal with any of the three guys who were out to do me harm simply by expressing my desire to take on the biggest one. Simply by saying "You guys wait over there. I want to talk to him" I pointed and walked forcefully towards the biggest one and they all took off.
In the interest of full disclosure, I carried myself pretty well in all three situations but was scared to death the whole time each time. On the outside I may have seemed like a BA but on the inside I was curled up in the corner sucking my thumb. I hope I am never ever faced with that kind of decision to make again.
Fighting four guys at once who really mean you harm is probably nearly impossible.
(I did not watch the video.)
