4 bouncers ambush 2 men

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.

Man underestimates danger of provoking 5

Most people tend to overestimate their fighting ability. This man is off the mark further than most when he is surrounded by 5 youths (including the one operating the camera). He initiates the violence (flicks a cigarette at one and pushes another) but takes no appropriate action – allows himself to be surrounded, does not move, does not position himself correctly or attempt to isolate and incapacitate his opponents. He appears to falsely assume these youths will cower and back off.

Man attempts bite on ground and is beaten unconscious for it

Gaining top position on the ground creates a significant advantage. It is very difficult to escape or retaliate from there, even with “dirty” tactics. In this instance, the person on the bottom cannot escape so attempts to bite, which only escalates the aggression of the other man who then beats him terribly.

Bystanders choose not to intervene, deciding that the beating is justified. If the man had not announced that the other had bitten him, they may have felt and acted differently. The opinion of bystanders is paramount and they need to be communicated with for this reason.

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.
