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

Lmao @ people saying 10-30 on the first page?

I'm about 5"11 240... Semi decent endurance, ex athlete.

I put my number around 200, provided there are no nutshots allowed.

All I have to do is make semi solid contact and that kid is down for the count. I picture myself throwing one punch and knocking out 3-5 kids at a time.

LOL you are not a video game. If 200 5 year-olds swarmed you at the same time you would be lucky to take out 5.

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

Whatever age kids in general are able to start playing basketball and score more than 1 basket

4th grade?

That'd be a more interesting question

My friend is ex navy and a pre-k teacher, so he sees this age range everyday. He put his number at 120 easy the only issue would be stamina.

Edit.... In a completely hypothetical situation.

Jerry Sandusky could anally rape an unlimited number of five year olds. He would only be limited by his refractory period.

Kids are surprisingly strong. The real problem is that 5 year old would run to corner and cry

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

The best are the people at the beginning saying the number is definetely under 10. Taking out 10 five year olds would be so easy, I would seriously get into a 3 point stance and just shoulder blast through them, sending them flying.

"refractory period"? What kind of pansy-ass school did you go to? Sandusky is a Penn State man. He never stops ejaculating.

cant get over how some people were trying to assume the kids might not want to fight or have proper training that theyd actually follow through with. ITS A GOD DAMN HYPOTHETICAL

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

I'm gonna say 175 but I would be using some serious psychological warfare to pick up the Discount Double Check Belt (State Farm Commercial Reference). About 2 min into this fiasco I would call a time out and say the game has changed to dodgeball and split up into two teams. I would then start taking rear cranial pot-shots to make a dent in the majority advantage.

I was hanging out recently with some of my wife's friends and they have a 6 year old in decent shape....can tie his own shoes....open refrigerator on his own, etc and I found my self sizing him up physically while he was dancing to yo gabba gabba (Nick Jr Show). He asked me me if I wanted to dance too and I told him to suck it and that my style was the art of fighting without fighting. I then went home and watched Enter the Dragon for the 8th time that week.

Serious?

How do you picture him going down without taking out at least 5 of them?

(please explain in as much detail as possible please)

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

Build a fort out of their bodies so they can only come at you one at a time, from one direction, and you'll be able to take down a lot more before you run out of energy. If you're lazy just try and pile them up and turn it into a game of King of the Hill.

You'd be lucky to handle 10.

I would take out 5 in one motion. You are seriously overestimating the strength and capabilities of the damage 5 year olds can do.

Lets make the situation smaller. If you can beat 5 of them, you can beat 10. 10 from 5 is a 100% increase, but they are so fragile that the extra 5 kids punching you makes no absolutely no difference.

In this scenario (200ish or w/e) it would take them a while for them to hurt me to the point I can't continually be knocking kids out. Like I said previously, assuming there is no nutshots or biting, and all they can do is punch and kick me in the stomach/face/legs etc.. it would take them so long to even put a dent in my stamina. They are incredibly weak compared to an adult male.

Also even if they got ontop of me after I am tired from pounding 200 of them, I think I could turtle up, catch my breath and then explode up, freeing myself from underneath and knocking out about 7 or 8 of them in the process.

They cannot hurt you in a fast manner, it would take like 30mins of them constantly punching you for you to feel it.

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

It's not a question of them doing significant damage do you, it's a question of how long will you last before you punch yourself out and fatigue prevents you from knocking them out fast enough. Eventually they will overrun you like zombies and you'll be buried in a pile of 5 year olds.

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

Adding to the hypothetical.. say I can't punch them, but can only knock them out by throwing them against the wall/across the room... I still think I could take on 25.

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

OP says we're allowed to wear a cup, so nut shots shouldn't be a big worry( obviously you should still try and avoid getting hit in the groin, but if it happens it isn't going to be debilitating).

At the first chance you get, move into a corner of the room( just don't get too close to the walls and break the rule about not touching them), or start fighting your way towards it. If you concentrate on taking out the ones between you and the walls you should be able to reach a point where there are very few, if any, 5yr olds still conscious on that side of you, which frees you up to concentrate on the rest. Now you're only being attacked from in front of you, and things become much easier.

Avoid punching the head, as you might damage your fists. For strikes I'd say knees, hammer blows, and kicks that don't have you raise your foot above knee level would be ideal. Other effective combatives would be shoving them into eachother, knocking their heads together(2 for 1), and shoving them headfirst into the walls on either side of you.

As you take more out, they'll have to start climbing over their unconscious comrades to get to you, which will create for treacherous footing for them and limit how many can attack you at once even more, while also making the ones attacking you even easier to deal with. Be sure to try and push bodies towards the walls on either side of you to completely block off any way to get behind you, and try and try to create some distance between yourself and the bodies that will pile up in front of you, so they won't trip you up.
