In Part 1 of our How to Survive a Street Fight Series, we laid down some practical rules to follow on “the street.” In Part 2 we’re going to look at some YouTube videos to see where guys followed those rules and where they broke them.
Let’s look at a recent video where two white liberal beta males failed to follow the rules of the street.
Six thugs beat up two hippies in downtown Austin, TX
Let’s look at Rule 1: “Do not fight unless your life or health is at risk.” Is the guy’s life at risk? You bet your ass.
Whenever multiple attackers are involved, your life is at risk. A one-on-one fight is a fair fight. It’s how men of honor fight.
When two men approach you, they have said they do not have honor and they have no respect for civilization or the social contract. They are not men. They are hyenas. They deserve to be shot like the filthy animals they are.
When your life is at risk, you must proceed with extreme violence (Rule 2) and then get the Hell out of there as soon as it’s over (Rule 3).
Even though there are 6 thugs in the group and only 2 hippies, the hippies could have won had they attacked first.
Look at the Group Dynamics.
Look at how spread out the six thugs in the video are. They are in a single file line and some of them even have their hands in their pockets. They are not Spartans arranged in a disciplined, well ordered formation. They have no group cohesion or unity. They are six individuals rather than one team. Use this to your advantage.
If you’ve ever watched a boxing match, you’ve heard about fighters “finding their rhythm.” The same is true of groups. A group, if given enough time, will find its rhythm. Do not let this happen. Attack before they find their base.
Smash the Alpha of the Group
The alpha of the group is the one who is in your face. The others who are talking shit and egging him on aren’t alphas. They are hecklers.
Remember your Bible classes? “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will scatter.” That is also Rule 42 of the 48 Laws of Power:
“Law 42 Strike the Shepherd and the Sheep will Scatter
Trouble can often be traced to a single strong individual – the stirrer, the arrogant underling, the poisoned of goodwill. If you allow such people room to operate, others will succumb to their influence. Do not wait for the troubles they cause to multiply, do not try to negotiate with them – they are irredeemable. Neutralize their influence by isolating or banishing them.”
The alpha of the group is the shepherd. Smash his face in and the other guys are neutralized.
Watch what happens in the video. Rather than strike the shepherd, the white hippies try talking their way out of the situation. Because they do not proceed with extreme violence, they get smashed.
Learn from those disgusting hippies. The streets are not the place to talk or chat or make friends. When thugs approach you, they aren’t trying to be pals. They are trying to hurt you.
Strike them first. Strike them hard. Violence of action.
Now let’s watch a video where the rules of the street are followed.
Boxer v. Two Men.
Here, as with 6 Thugs v. 2 Hippies, we have multiple attackers. This is not going to end well for the boxer unless he strikes first.
The boxer proceeds with extreme violence (Rule 2). He then leaves the situation (Rule 3).
The only thing the boxer did wrong was not following “Pride Rules” by stomping the guys’ heads in while they were down. This allowed the two men to regroup. What if one of the men had a knife? Now the boxer has lost his offensive advantage and is at the mercy of two petty criminals who have nothing better to do with their day than smoke cigarettes and hit women.
Maybe the boxer will get stabbed. Maybe he’ll bleed out on the sidewalk while the two men rape his girlfriend. He left his life in the hands of two criminals. That was a potentially fatal mistake.
Do not do this. When you attack, be ruthless. Take your life in your own hands. Do not allow the person who initiated the attack to decide if you will live or die. Take him out of the fight before you leave.
If two men attack you, you can legally do whatever you want to them. You can almost kill them. Soccer kick them in the head. Remember, they are the ones who dictated the appropriate use of force. When two men attack you, they are telling you they have no honor and are scum. Show them no mercy. Hurt them. Maim them. Cripple them.
Rule 0 of Street Fighting.
In my 3 Rules of Street Fighting Post, I omitted the most important rule. “To win without fighting is best.” (Sun Tzu, The Art of War.) Get big and you’ll find that people are much less interested in fighting you.
You should also avoid negative situations. Leaving the bars early is an easy way to avoid a street fight. If I’m out with friends, I leave before last call. At last call the streets fill with drunk losers who have no game and who lack the self-discipline to not get piss drunk.
In sum, don’t fight. It’s not worth the risk. If your life is truly in danger, then smash the people in the face with violence of action and get out.
