It just happens to be a very fun video, too. You can see all the participants laughing and smiling while trying to punch this guy in the face. From an educator's perspective, it's a very good way to illustrate his point! 

The way he's moving is, in my personal experience. I great way to get kicked in the face. I've been on both ends of it.

But it is, of course, extra effective when someone is head hunting and can't throw a decent punch. He still got tagged though.

"The way he's moving is, in my personal experience. I great way to get kicked in the face."

As a guy who's done Muay Thai for a long time, that was my first reaction, too. That being said, realistically, not a lot of people throw kicks in street fights and even fewer throw kicks that would cause any real damage. 

You mean trained, practiced, martial artists are skilled at avoiding getting hit by random shlubs off the street whom they know are swinging at them? 

 Oh gee. Who would have thought that? Not impressed. 

Because, of course, boxing teaches us the best way to win a street fight is to spend 15 rounds toe to toe against 8 teenagers high on God knows what.

Going to have to agree with Josh that it looks like a very good way to get knee'd/kicked in the mouth. But, as you said, the concept is pretty cool and he does have good head movement either way.

Fun video.The guys trying to punch him were less than.

However that skillset isn't something to be ignored completely because slipping punches is important. However in a real fight there's only one way to win - MOVE FORWARD. You attack the fight.

Micheal's comment is solid. Most attacks do not happen from a distance with notification and an agreement in place.

But it was an entertaining video.

I think we can all agree that there's no real defense for getting surprise-swarmed by a crowd. 

A surprise attack is what it is. People in our society are so focused on "just teach me the steps to stop...{insert attack}"..If it were all about the right steps we'd all be badasses right? The thing is a fight is a fight... whether one on one, surprise attack, crowd situation,etc...In a fight you are going to get hit, stabbed,etc... Accept that fact. It's much easier to fight once you come to that realization and accept that... What happens from there is you need to MINIMIZE DAMAGE (do you want to get hit 2 times or 12 times? Its up to you) to yourself while still moving forward to terminate the threat.

Principles:

1) REACT (do something!)

2) MINIMIZE DAMAGE TO YOURSELF

3 - 5) ATTACK! And when you attack maximum damage

"1) REACT (do something!)"

(Former UFC champion) Rich Franklin says that, in those types of situations, the best thing to do is to make a good decision. The second-best thing to do is to make a bad decision and the very worst thing to do is not to make a bad decision but to make no decision at all and to simply freeze up like a deer in the headlights.
