Karate kid shuts down alleged MS-13 gang member

Saturday, September 24, 2016

For those not in the know, MS-13 is one of the largest criminal gangs in the world. They can be found all over the globe and are comprised of mostly Central American people. They are a very dangerous group to say the least and if the guy in the following YouTube video is indeed a member of MS-13 than the guy fighting him has a lot of cojones (spanish for nuts).

Just like the video title suggests, it appears the gang member is indeed drunk and is the one instigating the confrontation. The title also hints that the guy fighting him is a karate practitioner but it’s hard to say from the video alone though it does look like he has martial arts training of some kind. He lands a series of solid leg kicks when the fight breaks out but gets overzealous and eats some punches for his troubles.


He has a better sense of distance though and his wide legged stance gives us another hint of his karate background. After the ‘karate kid’ backs away you see the alleged gang member call out to his buddies in typical cowardly fashion you’d expect from a gang member. The fight’s not going his way so he tries to call his friends in to help from the looks of it.

The fight continues however. You can tell just from their stances that one guy knows how to fight and the other does not. The karate guy keeps his hands up high and has a strong stance while the alleged gang member has no idea what he’s doing.

The karate guy throws a head kick that misses, but he’s going for the finish now! He lands a good punch after then WHAM a left head kick lands that puts the gang member down for good.

The only thing unsettling about the end though is it looks like another guy runs at the karate guy just before the video cuts off. Hopefully nothing happened to him after.
