Re: multiple opponents / ending fights

Gyuwaza with multiple opponents is designed (in my opinion) to teach you how to move in relation to more then one person. If you had a sword, it might be possible to fight more then one person at a time, even if they were equally armed, this I believe is the foundation of multiple assailant attacks. With a firearm it is defiantly possible to take on multiple opponents, and Randori/Gyuwaza, is great for teaching you how to move in relation to several people. However, it's completely impractical, and HIGHLY unlikely, if unarmed, that you will be successful when attacked by more then 2 people, not that it can't happen, but dealing with one person is hard enough!
