    I can't understand people who think they can beat 5 people in a row using any kind of martial arts.
    I have.....twice. It's quite simple-run....hit....run...hit...run....hit....

    Eventually logic comes to mind and they stop chasing you.

      All it takes is some boxing skill and a cool head.

      I've seen these kinds of videos of one guy vs multiple attackers from Turkey, China, and yes, even the US.



      Omega's simple routine is the tactic. Hit and run....stick and move.

          Nice video (and boxing skillz), I just love how they keep dropping.

          But I wasn't very clear on my statement, I was trying to say that, some people BELIEVE they can drop alot of people by using some MA and be some kind of Jackie Chan/Bruce Lee or w/e using it's Kung Fu and wash away people.

          I get your logic and it's pretty useful, but as you said, you probally are experienced in Boxing or some MA and keeping your head cool, but as a newbie it is highly discouraged.

            Most people suck. Whether it be fighting, driving, thinking...

            That's why the "cool head" part is so important. It'll save your life.

                The Great Knife is not so great when taught in the park by a yahoo to a bunch of other yahoos.

                They didn't even add sound effects or real saber techniques, from what I can tell.

                For comparison, this one has sound effects and real "great knife" techniques. Very similar to the Hung ga moon flowing knife forms (Hang Yuet Dahn Do).

                  Oops, I meant to post this vid, which may be the worst martial arts vid ever made:
                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TF-d31ErdOI

                  Its like it was made by the Team Chip TKD video editor.

                    Simple sword form bullshit test: does the form contain unnecessary grip changes so you can hold it like a big icepick? If yes, bullshit.

                      Does the person at any point perform a 360 degree spin? Roll on the floor? Kick or punch instead of, you know, cutting the other guy with the sword?

                        I love when the a martial arts sparring looks nothing like its Forms or Drills.

                          Do you ever use swords made of actual metal?

                            How the hell do you hold a big icepick? Is it different from a little ice pick?

                                edit: I should point out I was only talking shit about the shou shu sword vid. The way the Hung Ga guy starts and ends the form with the sword nestled in the left arm is pretty standard and not a bad way to carry a sword around when not combatting.
