This compilation is even more violent so be warned. But it does illustrate two essential martial arts principles: distancing and staying on your feet. As you can see from the first part of the video, many victims allow their aggressors to come within range and got sucker punched.

Conversely, being thrown puts one in a serious mobility disadvantage. This may explain why traditional martial arts placed such great emphasis on developing a strong stance.
