Re: Rising tide of hooligans and mass attacks

Odds of twenty, thirty, forty to one? I doubt that randori would serve much value in that kind of situation. Those numbers constitute a mob and a single person simply has little or no chance.

What are Malaysian motorcycle gangs like? Several of the major US motorcycle gangs are international, but I haven't heard of any of them in Malaysia. There is one chapter in Thailand that I've heard about though. If they emulate the US groups, they are a different kettle of fish to deal with in that they have a practice of massive retaliation. Defend yourself against one and the rest are obligated to join in against you. Is that what you're dealing with now? Scary, even if they aren't that organized. Not even one of Seagal Sensei's characters would fare too well in a twenty man randori.
