Skilled bouncer crosses the line – takes out two guys effortlessly
Bouncing is a tough job, there is no doubt about it. You are dealing with drunk, unruly people constantly and it can wear you down really fast. There is always the threat of potential violence looming on the horizon on any given night and it is your job to extinguish that threat and deal with troublemakers that are out to cause harm.
MMA training or even just straight BJJ (Brazilian jiu-jitsu) training goes a long way in that line of work and in my opinion, should be a mandatory prerequisite. In this YouTube video, you can really see how effective that kind of training is in those kinds of intense, violent situations.
The video starts out and you see one guy on top of another in a bar/nightclub, ground and pounding him. You can tell how drunk the guy on top is just by his sloppy movements. He’s not doing a ton of damage at first and clearly has no training but there is always the potential for serious harm or injury in any kind of unsanctioned street fight.
We also see the difference between one who is trained and one who is not trained. The first bouncer that arrives on the scene is completely inept and reluctant to go hands-on and stands by while the fight starts to get ugly.
That’s when the MMA trained bouncer arrives and saves the day by gently putting the aggressor out in seconds with a rear naked choke.
You can hear someone in the crowd ask “How is he out though he was just winning?” It’s called jiu-jitsu my friend.
The guy who was on the losing end doesn’t know when to cut his losses though and cowardly attacks his unconscious foe and the MMA trained bouncer is forced to get involved once again and easily puts him to sleep as well with his coup de grace – the rear naked choke.
