Two men argue with two security guards. Another guard grabs one of the men around the neck from behind. As the other man looks back and is distracted, a security guard standing in front of him punches.
The guards flanked and overwhelmed the two men. Human only have eyes in one side of their head, and a split second of distraction is all that is needed to land a punch undefended.
Incident from Sydney, Australia.
The footage shows a 28-year-old woman holding down a 13-year-old boy, waving a knife around and yelling “I’m going to kill someone” and repeatedly declaring she is an “ice addict”.
Police officers approached the woman from the front, while one officer came in from behind her to pull her off the teen, dragging her away before three other officers hold her to the ground.
The woman can be heard screaming while the officers detain her.
The boy then escaped and was not physically injured during the incident.
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.
Gunman pins the cop behind a pillar with fire to the left side while circling right to flank and shoot the cop in the back.
When more police arrive he recognises the need to disengage and look for a better position. Unfortunately his tactics and skills were excellent.
