I'm not gonna read this whole thread so sorry if I'm repeating what someone else said, but when we discuss multibles we gotta decide if we mean weighthead bouncers who have a clue or 16 year old 140 pounders who are drunk.
Cause Rorion is overstating when he says beating multbles is fiction.Beating TOUGH multibles is pretty near fiction, but beating a group of hapless dolts isn't that hard.I've seen it happen.
The attributes most needed top beat up say theree strong tough guys are rarely mentioned.
Size, strength, balance, power.
I know some huge wrestlers who a guy like Eddie Bravo or Royler Gracie would tap quickly who I'd way rather have backing me up in a brawl.But size/strength can't be changed(too much).
Too beat 3-4 guys you probably gotta stay up(you can't if youre attackers can wrestle well, but lets say they can't) and a grappler can best stay up.
My top guy fopr beating a group is a Tom Erikson or Emil Fedor.A big powerful grappler who can take you out with one punch... if he can land it.
Nice.....!!!!!! that about sums that up then
I think this is the kind of thing Strong Machine is talking about:
So taking your shirt off seems to be the key to defeating multiple attackers.

i think in a situation like that i was just basically covering up and then trying to get back to my feet ASAP. even now that my ground game is about 1000% what it was at that time, i'd be more worried about getting up than applying any ground techinques.
You guys need to read the whole thread. I know reading the whole four page thread is a lot to ask because you have video games to get to and all .. but it would help if you guys knew what had already been said and everything. The only thing this page has added to the conversation is that "it's easier to take on a scrawny gang than a gang of body building Navy Seals." Thanks. I'll write that in my training notebook.
I'm just kidding around .. but this was a pretty decent thread. You should check it out.
I got to 'reading' then stopped to play some more videogames.... Damn I love Tetris.

The reason for that is because you can only clear 2 lines of crack at a time, whereas in Tetris, the goal is to clear as many lines as possible!
