    That's fair and accurate, in the video he never says "this will work in a real situation", but the technique is obviously meant to be a self defence technique, and he's not doing it for the good of his health.

    My only issue was staying in between the attackers. Once he got the initial hit, he should of moved so only 1 attacker at a time could get him.

    Wait a minute he did move out of the way eventually, just because it wasn't to your timing liking is irrelevant.

    He only took a step back once he was done with his series, however he was still in between them.

    Teaches what he knows, and that video was probably done about 10 years ago because I met Spry 4 years ago after his bout with cancer and he looked nothing like that.

    As far as what he said, yes he is correct. DO SOMETHING and keep moving, especially if you're a little guy. And he's right in that you will get in more fights with your friends than a stranger. Also pple want an easy target. If you but up a fight, or even look like you will, pple tend not to want to mess with you.

    As far as that sequence going, I wouldn't bet on it.

    **** never goes the way its planned , when I was bear hugged from behind I got slammed way before I could reach anyones groin to rend a nut or hammerfist becouse my own damn leg was in the way .

    Maybe the guys that jumped me werent as stupid as most random drunken assults ... but I got tossed to the ground so they could both move freely to cut off my escape and soccer kick at me . I am pretty sure me trying to move to attack dude's groin is what allowed him to get my balance and dump me .

    I didnt watch after that part .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
