Gang attacks are a common thing in street fights. After all, many street fights occur between gang attacks. If ever you are in a situation where you need to defend yourself against a gang, you need to remember that you’re already at a disadvantage.
While you might have all the self-defense techniques and believe you can defend yourself, it’s important to note that you’re against a gang.
Therefore, not only you’re against multiple attackers, but they might also have weapons on them. No matter how you look at it, you’re at a disadvantage.
Although your attackers have the upper hand because they outnumber you, there are still a few important factors that you need to take into consideration that can help you out in a situation like this.
Try to avoid hitting the ground.
If you end up on the ground, the chances of you being able to get back up are slim since your attackers can easily surround you and start stomping you. Therefore, do everything you can to remain up.
Additionally, stay alert.
Be aware of your surroundings and your opponent’s body language. Watch their interaction and be alert to what they are saying.
Maybe they’re giving a signal or communicating something that can put you at an even bigger disadvantage. Maybe they are strategically placing themselves into a position, so they can surround you.
Staying alert and being aware of their movements is crucial in this situation.
Whenever you’re surrounded by multiple attackers, you want to avoid standing still. By being static, you’re giving your attackers the opportunity to surround you and jump on you. Therefore, it’s important to keep moving. Change positions, turn around so you’re not turning your back on them.
By moving around, you’re making it that much harder for them to trap you.
One of the most important things to remember during a gang attack is your position. Try to keep one of the attackers in front of you as much as you can. Don’t put yourself in a position where you are showing your back to your attackers. They can use that as an advantage to jump on you from behind.
You also want to always be ready to strike.
Put yourself in a position where you can easily strike your opponent at any given moment. By being the first to strike ins such a dangerous situation, you get to improve your chances of getting out safely.
