[Young Wang] great post. I’ve worked in bars all of my adult life and I’ve seen some pretty bad fights, most of which happened after someone thought it was over. Then… Bam… Beer bottles start flying. My thoughts now after training SDTS is to attempt to not let them get close I try not to get crowded into a corner and if I’m in the DJ booth I’m always watching and looking around, watching the people and the exits. Just an example Mardi Gras 2002 I was djing at our local club and the police had already been called a few times to break up fights. The last call was the one the broke the straw, it was a brawl the whole bar got into it. I was stuck in the DJ booth when the sheriffs kicked in the door and knocked off some tear gas. Needless to say I got stuck and had to suffer for 20 mins bc I could not get out of the booth. Needless to say since that night I always watch for exits and never assume a fight is over until I know 100% that I safe.
