This is your second questionable bump. Take the time to read ALL of the rules and make sure you are posting correctly.

Posting a link to my thoughts about Shou Shu in general:(http://www.bullshido.net/forums/show...=100673&page=2)
And about the claims that any martial artist or street fighter can take on multiple opponents... Its a little silly to say, "You can't take on multiple opponents no matter who you are!"
Most martial arts were designed for fighting potentially hundreds of people on the battlefields of India, China, Korea, Japan, and so forth, using both armed and unarmed combat. On the battlefield, you can't just run away, and you can't take one person to the ground until he taps out. You're stuck there fighting multiple opponents on the foot and on horseback - all of whom are using various types of weapons - until your commanding officer calls off the attack. Military men in China used to advance based upon their capability to survive bloody close-in combat against large armies, which inevitably involved fighting more than one *highly trained* person simultaneously!
Various martial arts systems have trained and still involve training in defending against multiple attackers including but not limited to:
Shaolin Kung Fu
Many, many more.
In any case, this link shows some semi-trained individuals taking out multiple opponetns:

Some areas, which you'd know if you read the rules, have specific posting criteria. They were waiting for me, or another mod, to clean up your mess and they were showing their displeasure at the same time.
Those videos seem to demonstrate the importance of learning how to properly fight one person with solid techniques you can practice 100% against a fully resisting opponent.
Good stuff. Makes me want to learn how to box.
Quickly off the bat..
The youtube description for the Aikido "randori" video reads:
aikido randori ryokukai dojo practice uke complying with nage
Whoever said it was 7 vs 1 on the video can't even count. Hell, at the end it looked like that one guy still had some buddies in there.
In the 4 vs 1, that was a grown-up Mike Valley vs some kids who didn't even look determined to fight.
The Boxers vs 4 guys was more of an example of being able to keep your distance from your enemy, and not being able to *finish off* four guys.
Btw, those Shou Shu videos were multiple attacker demos, do you have any undeniable proof of multiple attacker randori?

Welcome to Bullshido. Any idea what type of art you're interested in pursuing next? Grappling or stand up? Lots more threads on this site that could help you decide. Hit that search bar and go nuts my friend.
