Riot Defense: A Sneaky DISGUISE If You Get Caught In A Mob!

Riot Civil Unrest Escape And Evasion: Sneaky Disguise For Riots

Journalists beaten bloody and sent to the hospital simply for covering political protests.

Protesters savagely kicked and punched just for carrying an American flag.

Black-clad, masked thugs blocking traffic, threatening drivers and then chasing down and beating an old man who drove through their roadblock.

Store owners beaten to death for trying to save their life’s work.

What do all these attacks have in common?

The violence was all done by Antifa.

This “anti-fascist” group was something most people had never heard of before a couple years ago.

After the 2016 elections, they started showing up at political rallies and events more than ever, making it dangerous for anyone (left, right, or center) to express an opinion in public.

Left, Right, Center… it doesn’t matter, because if you’re not with them, they’ll attack you.

But violence at political protests, and trying to silence opinions you don’t agree with by beating people with pipes and crowbars, has gone to the next level with the riots that are now rampaging across the country after the death of George Floyd.

A lot of the violence has involved Antifa getting in on the mobs.

(We know, because we’ve seen some of them arrested already, including one Antifa member who was escorted to the police station by his parents to turn himself in.)

And THAT gives you, the citizen defender, a real opportunity!

How To Disguise Yourself In A Riot

Riot Civil Unrest Escape And Evasion: Sneaky Disguise For Riots

Obviously, the safest place to be in a riot is somewhere else.

We’ve talked in these emails, and on the MCS blog, about how to avoid a riot before it happens, and how to escape one if you can see the warning signs.

But when I saw just how many Antifa were involved in the rioting, recently, I realize that presents a very real opportunity for you if you get caught unexpectedly in a flash mob or riot.

Sometimes, these things happen before you realize it.

And the fact that most Antifa wear hoodies and face masks means that you can leverage stuff you already carry with you.

These days, we’re all carrying face shields and face masks, right?

Well, if you do find yourself in a riot, there’s no way you can fight them.

They outnumber you by hundreds to one!

So you have to outsmart them, “ninja style.”

That means, if you have a face shield or bandanna, and you can combine it with a hat (or another bandanna, or a hoodie, to cover your head)…

…you’ll look just like the other Antifa rioters!

If you suddenly find yourself in a riot, then, slip on your disguise.

Raise your fist to the sky.

Chant their slogans with them.

Work your way through the crowd as if you’re one of them, just there rioting along with them…

…and as they move, migrate to the edges and back of the crowd, so that when you can cut through a side street, alley, or other piece of cover, you can get clear of the mob!

What really matters is that you do your best to blend in so you can gain the time needed to sneak away.

Just remember – if police or riot control military personnel show up, they have no way of knowing you’re NOT one of the rioters.

Understand that as long as you’re in disguise, you’re in constant danger… and get the heck out of there as quickly as you can while playing along.

It’s a bold strategy, and one that might annoy you a little bit to have to pretend… but I guarantee you, it’s better than trying to fight off hundreds of people who want to tear you apart!

Do what you have to, get clear of the riot, and make sure you and your family are safe.

That’s all we can do, sometimes, when social chaos finds us.

Multiple Attacker Gange Assaults: How NOT To Get Stomped To Death!

Multiple Attacker Gang Assault Defense: How NOT To Get Stomped To Death
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

It’s the worst-case scenario in a street fight: Ending up on the ground.

When you’re on the ground, you’re in very big danger of getting stomped to death.

That’s especially true if your attacker has buddies.

Once you’re down they’ll be more than happy to jump in.

And that means they’ll put the boots to you while you can do NOTHING.

So how do you protect yourself where groundfighting is concerned?

I talked to expert Nick Farooqui about groundfighting survival tips, and here is a summary of what he had to say.

How NOT To Get Stomped To Death!

Multiple Attacker Gang Assault Defense: How NOT To Get Stomped To Death

Nick Farooqui

The fact is, there is no secret to staying off the ground.

No matter how hard you try, eventually, you’ll make a mistake and end up there.

You also might be taken by surprise and tackled to the ground before you have time to think about what to do.

There are infinite variables.

Environmental awareness is critical.

Eventually, though, you could end up on the ground when your attacker isn’t.

That’s when things could get deadly… because when you’re on the ground and he is standing, he could stomp you to death.

Here are three tips you need to remember when fighting on the ground:

1. You Can’t Move And Stand At The Same Time

The objective of street grappling and groundfighting is to GET BACK ON YOUR FEET AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

Only when you are on your feet do you have the maneuverability to get out of trouble.

When you’re on the ground, you are a target.

But… you can’t move and stand at the same time.

The two are mutually exclusive.

If you try to move and stand, you’ll end up getting knocked down and overwhelmed.

THAT will lead to getting stomped to death.

Focus on getting to your feet, THEN moving out of danger.

2. Always Read The Situation

This raises the critical question, though:

How do you know when your opening happens so you can get back on your feet?

It hinges on awareness.

Awareness can make a huge difference.

Read the situation to find your openings.

You’ve got to wait for an opportunity so you don’t just get kicked unconscious when you try to get up.

When you try to get back to your feet, it has to be when you have the opening to do so — not when you’re just giving him a chance to kick your lights out.

3. Do NOT Get Knocked Out

If you get knocked out, that’s it.

You’re going to get stomped into the dirt.

When you’re unconscious, you are completely helpless…

…and we’ve seen too many cop-car dashcam videos of what happens to cops, training professionals, who make the mistake of getting knocked out.

To stay awake, you’ve got to protect your head, throat, and lungs.

These are all vulnerable points that, when struck, could lead to getting knocked out.

You’ve got to stay awake to stay alive!

Keep these tips in mind if you ever find yourself on the ground.

They could be the difference between surviving and getting stomped to death.

Real Street Fights: Throwing Your “Combat Switch” For Self-Defense Against Multiple Attackers!

Self Defense Against Multiple Attackers: Mob Violence /Flash Mob Defense

Jeff Anderson

Facing multiple attackers is the most dangerous thing you can do.

That’s because if they get you down on the ground, they could easily stomp you to death.

Facing one guy isn’t necessarily a life-and-death situation, although it could be.

Facing a bunch of people at once almost certainly is.

To succeed, you’ve got to be able to throw your “combat switch.”

You probably have a vague idea that this is the combat mindset you need to be truly ruthless in a life-or-death fight.

But how exactly do you go about developing that, and what does it really mean to you?

I spoke with my friend Ron Grobman about this, and here is a run-down of what he had to say to me.

Throwing Your “Combat Switch” For Multiple Attackers!

Your combat switch is that change in your mindset that is going to help you unleash your full power and your full potential.

Throwing that combat switch is what will help you destroy the person in front of you.

So, this begs the question:

  • How do you establish that switch?
  • How do you develop it?
  • How do you identify what it is and then incorporate it in your training?

Here are three tips for developing your combat switch, including two drills.

1. The Hallway Drill

The first of the two drills is called the hallway drill.

Think of it as running a gauntlet.

You have to have a number of training partners to do this drill.

  • The training partners form two rows of people, creating a hallway.
  • The person doing the drill has to make their way through the gauntlet.
  • The whole time, the people on either side are striking at them, hitting them, grabbing them.

The person going through the hallway can fight back, and their goal is to make their way through the gauntlet.

You can scale the intensity of this drill based on how much force the participants are willing to use.

(Obviously, it would be easy to get hurt doing this, so take that into consideration when determining how much force to use.)

2. The Ring Of Fire

The second drill is related to the first, but with some variations.

It’s called the ring of fire.

You get enough people together so that they can surround the student with their arms interlaced.

(This isn’t a fighting drill, because the people in the ring have their arms locked together and can’t fight back.)

The student’s job is to use sheer brute force to break through the ring.

Meanwhile, the people forming the ring do their best to stop that person.

The drill trains you to use brute strength against a seemingly impossible blockade.

You have to bust out despite them stopping you.

3. Learn That Nothing Is Impossible

The two drills just described put you in a mindset that helps you develop your combat trigger.

They do this because they teach you to do extraordinarily difficult things.

Getting beaten by 20 people while you are fighting back is amazingly difficult.

Busting out of a circle of people determined to stop you is likewise difficult.

Once you’ve proven to yourself you can do these things, you train your brain to “throw that switch” and do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals.

You learn that you are capable of these great feats, and you learn the attitude that you have to have in order to do so.

When you have to fight, you fight, even if the task seems impossible.

It hinges on fear and anger.

When fear turns to anger turns to determination in the face of impossible odds, you learn to completely unleash yourself.

That is your combat switch.

Learning to throw it, and developing it through this type of training, could save your life.

Multiple Attackers: Self-Defense Against Mobs (Who Do I Hit First?)

Self Defense Against Multiple Attackers: Mob Violence /Flash Mob Defense
Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

Facing multiple attackers is one of the most life-threatening encounters you could ever face.

Most training for street fights is done focusing on one-on-one attacks.

This isn’t realistic.

The REALITY is that, on the street, you are much more likely to be outnumbered.

Criminals choose odds that favor them.

Given the chance, they WILL outnumber you.

So who do you target first?

I talked to combat expert Moni Aizik about this scenario, and here is a summary of the advice he gave me.

Self-Defense Against Multiple Attackers: Who Do I Hit First?

Self Defense Against Multiple Attackers: Mob Violence /Flash Mob Defense

Moni Aizik

Obviously, when you are facing multiple attackers, you have to choose someone to hit.

You can’t hit them all at the same time.

So who’s it going to be?

Some instructors recommend attacking the “leader” of a group.

Some say to attack the loudest guy, who is probably the biggest bully.

Some say to attack the one who is armed.

While it varies from situation to situation, there actually isn’t a single right answer.

Here are three tips for facing multiple attackers.

1. Choose Your First Strike

If one attacker does seem dominant, it MIGHT be helpful to strike that person first.

Taking out the perceived leader of a group of thugs might take the spirit out of the others.

They might be taking their cues from the worst of them, and when he goes down, their resolve falters.

Then again, you might do just the opposite.

If one of the attackers seems quite weak, you might choose to hit him first in order to break through and escape.

It won’t necessarily cause the other attackers to pause if you take down the weakest one of them, but if it gives you the escape route you need to run through their ranks, then it doesn’t matter.

Whoever you do hit first, do so with maximum aggression.

Your life is on the line and you can’t afford to waste any time.

2. Know HOW To Hit

If you did hit someone in a multiple attackers scenario, are you confident they would go down?

Hitting someone ineffectively in that situation might make it that much WORSE for you.

If you just make them angry but don’t take them out, you’re in for a good stomping-to-death.

You absolutely need to know how to hit hard enough to knock someone out.

Knocking someone out puts them out of the fight as quickly as possible, allowing you to deal with the other threats.

It’s possible to do this with an open palm, which prevents you from breaking your knuckles.

Use fakes and checks, drawing attention or pushing the attacker in one direction, then hitting from another.

It’s all about learning to move in and around multiple attackers quickly.

3. Stay Mobile!

To do that moving around, though, you can’t afford to get rooted to one spot.

It’s the simplest thing in the world to say, but you MUST stay mobile.

Don’t stand in one spot!

Moving targets are better able to avoid attacks while seeking a better position from which to flee.

Keep moving so you’re a harder target to hit… and when you find your opening, make a break to escape.

Remember… failure means getting stomped to death!

Don’t let it happen to you.

The time to train for a multiple attacker scenario is now, before you face such a threat.
