FLASH MOB ATTACKS

In the past few weeks there have been many self defense blogs talking about flash mob attacks as well as a thread on our web site. A flash mob attack is a group of thugs who decide to decend on a victim or victims and beat them. It may be robbery, rape or just for fun. Here are a few examples from around the country courtesy of Gabe Suerez’ WarriorTalkNews.com blog:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) – All eight suspects are in custody after a brutal attack in Five Points early Monday morning which left the teenage victim in critical condition, according to Columbia police.
CHICAGO, IL (WLS) — The recent series of mob-style attacks on Chicago’s Near North Side mark the first major hurdles facing Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago’s new police superintendent Garry McCarthy. The latest attack happened Tuesday night. A witness tells WGN 15-20 teens beat and robbed two people at Chicago and Wabash
AKRON, OH — Out of nowhere, the six were attacked by dozens of teenage boys, who shouted ”This is our world” and ”This is a black world” as they confronted Marshall and his family.
NO. VIRGINIA — Three people were beaten by mobs in Northern Virginia in two separate incidents that occurred within five minutes of each other on Saturday night, authorities said

Here is our Krav Maga take on flash mobs. Actually, after writing this it really is a blend of sevaral of my past blogs. The concepts of run away, you can’t win when outnumbered, carry a weapon and when it’s go time it’s time to get mean and nasty all come to play now.

First, of course, is don’t be there. The quote my friend John Burton uses all the time is “Don’t go to stupid places with stupid people to do stupid things”. You know where the bad parts of town are, don’t ever go there. Keep your head on a swivel because the bad parts of town may come to find you when you are someplace not so bad. We are all decent people, we pride ourselves on not being prejudice, being color blind (cue the music to “I’d like to teach the world to sing”) believing that we are all created equally, etc. but guess what, the scum bag thugs are some of the most prejudice people on the planet. This is why they are scum. If you notice that you are suddenly in the minority where you are at, keep your eyes peeled.

Don’t be like most of America and bury your head in your phone to answer that oh so important text. Keep your eyes open and observe everywhere you go. Always be vigilant watching for groups forming. Watch for people talking while their eyes dart to you. Watch for pointing or anything that just doesn’t look right. Don’t ask yourself what doesn’t look right and try to figure it out, leave. As soon as you feel the least bit uncomfortable, leave.

When they start to approach you it’s go time. We don’t wait to see what they intend to do. As soon as even a few start towards you put your plan into action. Your first plan is to run. Run now and run fast. If others are with you, they should know the plan ahead of time. If you are cut off or have family with you it’s time for part two of the plan. You escape by going through. You get vicious and mean and do the most damage to anyone close that you can. You clear a path and get out of there. There is no talking your way out, no reasoning. These are scum bags who don’t look at you as human, they look at you as entertainment. John showed a video of some news footage at our USKMA Spring Camp of a family that was attacked by a mob. As they beat the husband the wife was pleading with one of the attackers to stop. He turned around and punched her in the face. We are dealing with animals and we must become an animal.

In this vein, nobody can fight twenty people and win. This ain’t Hollywood. Cops can’t be everywhere. Cops are only minutes away when seconds count. If you are going to survive this it is up to you. Do what I do…carry a handgun where it’s legal and a knife all the time. I’m not talking about a small apple cutting knife, I’m talking about a pig sticker. We’ve already decided it’s go time. The only way out of this mess is to be more violent, nastier and dirtier than the scumbags. This isn’t the time to think about not hurting anyone, what the police will think, etc. You will eventually be let out of prison, you’re in a casket for good. Here’s my plan. If it’s the knife I attack. I don’t waive it and try to intimidate a path open. The scumbags all have knives I’d bet…and handguns. Go for whoever is closest and stab them in the face. Go right down the line stabbing any face you see as you clear a path. If they are not running away they are a threat to your life. They may eventually take me down but I guarantee I won’t be the only one bleeding at the end. If it’s the handgun with me that day…same plan. I shoot the closest person in the face and I get out alive.

Brutal is what Krav does best. You will go home that day no matter what. BE SAFE!

  1. […] The store robbing is probably as much thrill seeking as anything else. But one can not deny the that the violent acts are racial in nature. This is worrisome on many levels not the least of which is the potential for white backlash. Some unsavory blogs are stirring the pot. This is a quote from one of them: Here’s my plan.  If it’s the knife I attack.  I don’t waive it and try to intimidate a path open.  The scumbags all have knives I’d bet…and handguns.  Go for whoever is closest and stab them in the face.  Go right down the line stabbing any face you see as you clear a path.  If they are not running away they are a threat to your life.  They may eventually take me down but I guarantee I won’t be the only one bleeding at the end.  If it’s the handgun with me that day…same plan.  I shoot the closest person in the face and I get out alive.
