Lower lip bitten off in street fight

Two main things to note here:

  1. Biting is possible at any time a grip is established and from any range and position, and it can happen very quickly;
  2. Despite having about one third of his lower lip bitten off, the victim of the bite was willing to continue fighting. It was the biter who stepped back, put his palms up then walked away. Biting does not incapacitate and will at best discourage.

Kurds ambush and kill Turkish soldiers – Remarkable GoPro combat footage

The most effective way to attack is the ambush. It is so effective quite simply because the victim is unprepared tactically and psychologically. It causes damage before they are aware their attackers exist, followed by confusion and fear. It’s a sucker punch on another scale entirely.

In this video, two Kurds ambush and kill several Turkish soldiers who never stood a chance.

Aggressor knocked out by bystander then returns to attack victim

Any fight in a public space can be seen and judged by other people. There is always the potential for bystanders to intervene in any capacity – they may stop the fight by using physical restraint or attack someone involved when they perceive their behaviour in a negative way. Quite often, bystanders will actually prevent others from intervening so they can see how the fight unfolds.

In this case, a person intervenes to prevent what he saw as an unfair attack, then left too soon as the aggressor returned.

Woman knocked out by man despite every warning she needed to leave

Male was obviously extremely aggressive, taking an angled stance as he prepared to strike which the female failed to read. Male then actually attempted a sucker punch which missed and the female still failed to attempt escape, instead raising her fists to defend further punches.

She may have felt that she had a chance in defending herself, but more likely she felt that attempting escape would have the same outcome with the male chasing and beating her.

Man gets out of position while fighting multiples

When this fight begins, male in black shirt is already in a bad position, facing two other men who are shoulder to shoulder. The two targets cannot be dealt with at the same time, and when attacking one, we become exposed to the other.
Black shirt reaches toward white shirt. White shirt is able to read black’s movements which were telegraphed from quite a distance. White shirt is now moving backwards and drawing black shirt into a position which exposes his right side to striped shirt.
Black shirt throws a punch while completely out of range and exposes his side which cannot be defended while he lunges and commits to his own punch. This position could hardly be any worse.
Striped shirt takes full advantage. More people get involved in the fight, mostly grappling with each other and missing strikes. Black shirt is the only person who continues to take hard strikes to the head while he is defenceless on the ground.
