The US mainstream is currently in the grip of panic about a supposed new youth trend called â€™Knockoutâ€™, which sees adolescents randomly KOâ€™ing people in the street.
A few recent incidents have made â€™Knockoutâ€™ front-page news in the US and it has caused consternation in the MMA sphere as well.
Several fighters have spoken out about it, among them Kenny Florian. â€śIn these cases the kids aren't trying to rob the individuals of anything. Their only goal is to see if they can land a knockout blow on an unsuspecting victim,â€ť he wrote in a blog for FOX Sports.
â€śThe stupidity of this is mind boggling. Is this the world we are living in now?â€ť
Now the online instructor Rener Gracie has released a video on â€śSurviving the Knockout Gameâ€ť.
