This man does not have many skills; but speed, distance management, movement and positioning allow him to use his right hand to great effect against men who possess even less skills than he does.
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.
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.
This police officer is outmatched in hand to hand combat and could have been strangled to death if backup didn’t arrive. He is also lucky that the suspect wasn’t able to apply a more effective choke earlier, otherwise there would have been plenty of time to strangle unconscious and murder the officer.
This video demonstrates that guns are not a trump card and can potentially be overcome even by a person who is unarmed. It is also important to recognise that grappling skills in this specific situation represent the only way to survive.
Excessive force on behalf of the bouncers, and idiocy on behalf of the drunks who initiated with aggressive posturing and continued to approach after it was obvious they were outmatched.
The first bouncer kicks his downed opponent in the groin after he falls. The second slaps him down again when he gets up and refuses to leave. A friend attempts to intervene and is punched.
Victim stepped into striking range without watching opponent, did not appear to understand the risk and how fast the situation can change. This was potentially fatal due to the hard surface.
Victim standing with hands in pockets within striking range. Aggressor does not telegraph, strikes while talking to distract victim. Striking from this range happens so quickly that it is impossible to react in time for the vast majority of people.
