    We never had pugil sticks like that nor that kind of protection. If she couldn't stand up to that she never would have stood up to what we had.

    I thought for sure the guys would take a dive. Got to give it to the first woman she took a beating the whole way through the fight. Sadly just saying you're a bad ass doesn't make you one.

    The second video, you got to be kidding me, is that the biggest woman they could find? I doubt she could beat me at 70.

    All things being equal, no woman on earth is going to stand up to a man of equal age and health. Now in the spy business women can out do most men because they have one thing going for them that every healthy male wants---SEX!

    Wow, I expected that a woman willing to take that challenge might have better skills. Both of the guys were just bull rushing with little technique. In the Pugilism vid, she could at least not have tried to take the bigger guy's rush on, rather spinning and downing him en-passant.

    I think in Pugilsm vid I think that the woman was in shock from the beginning, she didn't mount any kind of offense or really any defense.

    As for the men, brute aggression is what is called for taking down such a weak enemy. Their opponet had almost no chance of really hurting them so better to eliminate all possibility very quickly, which is what they did.

    I don't think that the second woman was even trained in how to at least defend herself if not avoid being beat to death.

    Here's my boring story somewhat on the same line. During 1970 I was in USN "A" school in Great Lakes Michigan. There were riots in the streets pretty much like today. I am pretty sure May 5th the base was worried about a threatened attack on the base so they took us out of school to train in riot control. I was about as big as the woman taking on the man in the second video.

    We were given axe handles and instructed on how to block blows coming from different directions. My friend whom I paired up and he weighed as much as I did so we pretty much took it easy on each other not really swinging too hard.

    On one day he wasn't there and I got paired with a guy who definitely took the training seriously. He was swinging so hard that I if I didn't do something he was going to literally break my hands. I am not sure to this day if the instructor set it up so I would either learn or leave, but all I know is Clem Kaddidlehopper was hurting me. So I learned I couldn't let him get "over the top" on me. As soon as the instructor would call out the attack I was all over the guy. Couldn't really push him back much, I still weighed about 155 but I stopped him from getting the momentum to hurt me. It was a good lesson.

    Later the instructor attacked me while we were in formation and I did the same thing I did with Clem and it worked out well for me.

    That's what you are taught to over whelm your opponent. It's kill or be killed. There's no by the rules in hand-to-hand combat.

    Well, having studied multiple types of hand to hand fighting styles, I will tell you that A there's always someone bigger than you, B sometime, someone will surprise you and won't give you time to be the agressor and C using an opponents size/energy/momentum... against them is like free energy.

    In one form of Kung Fu that I studied, we specifically learned to take on a running opponent by blocking any leading hand/hands, and then rolling across their back while backfisting and applying other techniques to their head/neck. Then you get to start on a more even playing field.
    Similar things are possible with a Bo (staff).
