Yea that was funny. Me personally, I would have used that stuff to my advantage.
Back when I was a bouncer, I took two guys out at the same time by using a pool table. I grabbed them both by the throat and slammed them both into the pool table and the both ended up on top of it lying on their backs. It was actually pretty fun. Never had to strike them.
Of my five years as a bouncer I had to strike only three times, and we had 2-3 fights per weekend on average. The contact manipulation range of Kenpo was highly effective for me and most important for that job.
Lots of fun stories.
