geez, people are still responding to this question...

This question will be up there next to "What's the meaning of life?" that you can ask God.

After they pin you down, they start tearing at your scrotum and penis, while ripping off your earlobes and gouging out your eyes. I bet you're going out at some point.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

i am a camp counselor for 6-7 year olds. believe me, 5 year olds still have very underdeveloped motor skills and would be able to do relatively no damage to you. i could tell them to hit me as hard as they can and it never even hurts. on the other hand, if u hit them with even a fourth of your strength, they will break down and cry. the point is, it doesnt matter how many 5 year olds are sent at you, you will be able to take them down until you pass out from exhaustion, which could take hours. combat training would do virtually nothing for them, as they have limited cognitive and motor ability. the one thing to look out for is your lower legs. they will latch on to them, and make it difficult to move.

naw, without training it would be to easy, it would basically last until you ran out of stregnth from dropping them like flies.
You guys aren't really thinking about how little training a 5-year old can retain and utilize.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

Can I opt to have the same training as the kids instead?

For a start if you trained in defense only you're already at a disadvantage. Taking the exact same training they took would do the following.

1) You'd know exactly what to expect.
2) You'd be the aggressor rather then the other way around.

These two are significant advantages over the 5 year olds. A few reasons, the most of which is sheer strength. There is no doubt about it, you will be stronger then a 5 year old.

Not to mention even in an organized circular assault from toddlers, there is only so many that can get to you at one point. And that is probably less then 10. The rest of the time they are pushing and shoving to get to you.

These mindless, fearless kids attacking you are still weak in structure, let me explain.

My first few seconds on battle.

Grab the closest kid and snap his arms like twigs. Grab the next kid do the same. By this time the kids are probably all around you. This is when you start picking them up and hurling them at the other kids. I mean really tossing them.
You would easily start just punting them away from you.

If it starts to get too much I'd make my way over to a wall by just up and charging, stomping the kids along the way. Now they can't get to me from all angles.

My number - 40 if it's defensive trained, 80 if it's the same training as the kids took. Knowing what to expect is by far the biggest advantage in any fight.

According to the "Percentiles" what doctors use to chart the averages for all kids.

5 year old male will be 3'7"(50%) tall, and be 41lbs (52%)

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

Awesome thread.

My wife, a kindergarten teacher surrounded by 5 year olds on a daily basis, thinks 15, for a healthy young man to take on. She gives herself 8-10 before she goes down.

Her argument is that when they surround her to hug her, she's already knocked off balance. Change these kids into little fighters out for blood, and she thinks one would go down pretty quickly. Then if they start kicking your head / suffocating you, you'll be done pretty quick.

I'm thinking slightly higher: 20-25 - mainly because I can keep my distance and take out several before they close and take me down.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

The guys saying triple digits/infinite are idiots:


You start out essentially surrounded.
They come at you from all sides while you can only strike one at a time.
You can't run around, as some have suggested you do, because you run into a solid wall of the little [censored] everywhere you turn.
Eventually, they grab onto your legs and start biting.
Then it's only a matter of time.
You punch one kid loose and he's immediately replaced by another.
Then a couple grab an arm and start biting it.
Then you go down to the ground.
Then you die.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

Stamina would be the limiting factor. Fighting is incredibly tiring and you'd be running around a small area at top speed. Throw in the constant punching/kicking/biting/gouging. Finally you've got many kids grappling/impeding you - they don't hurt much but they'd tire you.

There's no way an average person could beat a hundred or more kids, and even less for the 'average' OOT nerd.

I bet I can take about 20, and I'm larger and stronger then the average 2+2er. It would be hard to move any limbs with a ton of kids hanging all over you.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....why are they unflappable?

I'm only part way through the posts, but most are disregarding the stipulation about the kids being motivated enough to stay after you. So let's speculate about that. How do we motivate the 5 year olds to come at you relentlessly?

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

Does anyone actually know what the training for the 5 year olds would most likely consist of? I really think we should consider that before anyone can deduce a magic number. For instance, all you people who think you are going to go around punting the little sprouts...are you considering the possibility that several of them will be waiting for just that. For you to be in mid kick, weight on one leg, and bam they move in as a unit. Maybe some of them, that is their job. They are leg grabbers. Others are to throw themselves bodily into you to get you down. Still others are to start kicking you in the face or jumping on your head with both knees as soon as you are down. Maybe they are even given a strategy to get you tired before trying to execute the main plan. Don't forget, batman gets to pick the kids.

Re: How many 5 year-olds.....

In the first page or two of this thread, somebody got it right. I won't bother looking up who, but you just have to pick up one of them, preferably one of the taller, skinnier ones, and pull off the whirling dervish... kid weighs max probably 60 pounds for a 5 year old? you could handle a lot of kids this way.

Ever done a Kettleball workout?
Now try it with the Kettleball fighting back.

You'd tire out very fast, and it's unlikely that you'd knock a single kid completely out. Sure, you'd knock a couple down, but you'd need direct skull on skull contact for a KO.
