Your ego can get you killed or badly hurt if you don't know how to control it. A life of Active Self Protection is a life of commitment to escape, evasion, and de-escalation. Because otherwise stuff like this happens. How often do you mentally work on escape, evasion, and de-escalation? Original here: http://goo.gl/fLE9hh Lessons: 1. The audio commentary is our primary lesson. When you have the opportunity to avoid a fight, avoid it. Don't fight a guy to play the "monkey game" or to salve your ego. It's simply not worth it. Not only can it get you in a lot of trouble, it doesn't gain you anything! Never defend your ego. 2. More guys than you think will lead with the right haymaker, either a long hook or what the MMA world calls an "overhand right." It's the most likely attack to need defending from, so it's one I recommend you train defense against regularly. A slip worked excellently here because it took the attackers' weapons (hands, feet, elbows, knees) away from him and gave him his opponents' back. 3. You should be able to fight in multiple zones of conflict. When the fight is at distance the guy in white knew how to move. When it closed to the clinch, he knew how to leverage his body mechanics. When he decided to ground the fight, he knew how to take a bigger man down in a punishing way. When on the ground, he knew how to deliver additional damage. Know how to fight in different positions! (I'm not condoning the sucker punches at the end btw) 4. Good on the other guys in this video for stepping in once the fight was clearly over. They didn't let him wail on an unconscious man but got him off and calmed down. Excellent work there, and probably saved the guy in red some serious brain damage. Attitude. Skills. Plan.
