Dean Lister Beats Up Multiple Attackers
What To Do When Attacked By Multiple Attackers
If you have spent any time training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or any style of grappling martial art or self defense then you already know that all fights start standing. In a real life street fight scenario it may not always be in your best interest to bring the fight to the ground. There is a major difference between training on the mats and being forced to use self defense in a real world situation. First of all, you can seriously injur or even kill someone with a hard throw to the ground — and though someone who is provoking a fight has earned themselves a hard toss to the ground, it is in your best interest to try and deescalate the situation. Secondly, it might not be wise to go to the ground if you are fighting multiple attackers.
Taking the fight to the ground exposes you to getting sucker punched or kicked if you have more than one guy you need to protect yourself again. With that in mind, today we are going to look at what to do when attacked by multiple attackers with Dean Lister.
Dean is one of the pioneers of both jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts, having been one of the earliest leg attack experts who could arguably have been responsible for the rise of the current crop of leg attack gunslingers like the team known as the Danaher Death Squad, made up of the likes of Garry Tonon, Eddie Cummings, and Gordon Ryan among others. As an instructor and coach, Dean Lister has been sought all over the world for his combat knowledge. Watch the video below and then we will discuss Dean’s technique. Check it out now!
When you are in a situation like this you have to accept that you are probably going to get hit. Some times this involves sacrificing your defense to get into a position where you are only faced against one opponent. Dean suggests fighting one guy at a time. Often you will throw a punch and then grab your opponent to switch angles. Usually the person closest to you is the one you want to attack first. Notice you are always trying to move to your advantage, using your opponent as a shield to protect you from the other attackers. “Find the avenue of escape” is ultimately what it comes down to according to Dean Lister. Why stay there and fight if you do not have to? The best self defense is not having to fight at all. So if you can clear your way to an exit you should do exactly that.
