Yeeehawww!!! I wish I could get into that kind of trouble!
Hmmm, going back to the topic, and to echo what has been said, in a mutiple attack scenario, you either run the **** away or raise the nasty-meter and **** at least one of them in the most decisive manner. Bullies in group tend to **** bricks when they realize there is a potential for danger to them (though they can also gang up more out of fear.)
One quick solution for that type of situation is to always go out with a bunch of buddies. Three or more guys together usually form a good deterrent for that kind of ****.

I'm not going to cry about people misinterpreting my thread because it's a great convo to have. But I think you've hit one of several nails on the head with that comment.
I'm not saying that the guys in the clips I'm championing as "good" are going to become awesome multiple-attacker defenders, I'm thinking more in terms of teaching a compariatively realistic understanding of the dangers of being on the recieving end of multiple-attackers. You can also see that these lads, despite their clowning around, were less 'untaught' than many of the martial artists in other clips.
By untaught I mean that non-alive training (ie. most mainstream MA) is un-teaching the natural instincts of fighting. Some of those instincts are not good, but some are. They willingly attacked anyone's back given the chance even if it was with a half-power run-past slap with a boxing glove. But compare that to the two guys I labelled as "semi-contacters" in the other vid, how they weren't half as aggressive and only really did much when the guy was facing them - had they inadvertantly learned only to fight the opponent who is facing them? Maybe, that's what 99% of MA sparring is like afterall.
You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

To be honest, saying that someone trained to fight face to face won't attack someone from behind is really the same as saying that a sport fighter won't punch someone in the balls on the "street".

That's true, the people in that video did attack from behind. However, I still thought it was a waste of time (if their intention was productive training) because if they didnt know beforehand that they could be attacked from behind when fighting 7 people... somethins wrong.
