How to deal with multiple attackers in a street fight

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

When it comes to martial arts and self-defense, the topic of defending against multiple attackers is perhaps one of the most debated. Although we have seen the likes of Bruce Lee destroy multiple opponents on screen, he had the benefit of only being attacked one at a time…and that it was a movie.

So if you find yourself in a situation where a gang is looking for trouble and you don’t have an easy exit, what can you do to minimize harm to yourself or your loved ones?

In this edition of Master Wong techniques, the colorful Wing Chun master goes through some techniques to employ against a multiple-opponent-attack.

Throughout the lesson, Master Wong goes though how he maintains his distance, quick ways to take down an attacker as well as using an attacker as a human shield.

Master Wong originally came to England at the age of ten as a refugee from Vietnam. He first took up martial arts as a result of being bullied at school. Starting his training with a Chinese Master in the UK, Sifu Wong progressed quickly in skill and after 5 years traveled to Hong Kong and mainland China to study with a variety of Chinese masters in his early twenties.Training in a wide variety of martial arts has given Sifu Wong a foundation and skill level rarely seen in the martial arts world. It also allows him to provide a highly comprehensive teaching program for a great many students with differing requirements. This eventually led to the opening of the Master Wong Academy at Charles Street in Ipswich, becoming one of only a handful of full-time training centers in the region.  [source:]
