Garry here. This is an arranged meet between 2 firms. There are sporadic contacts between the 2 sides but mostly it is a classic example of a group monkey dance.

With so few police officers there could have been a real set too had those present wanted to. The majority were there to display not fight.

Despite the books, the films, the newspaper and TV reporting painting a picture of last man standing battlegrounds, and acknowledging the amount of actual violence varies along with its severity of application, the majority of those in firms do not fight that often. So is there some bizarre form of etiquette at play that comes into play when firms clash and do not want to fight, I think there is and this are just ten ways of not fighting when firms clash:
1 Never wear colours, these identify you too easily and can be seen as a uniform, however, by not wearing an obvious uniform like the carnival fans, a less obvious form takes its place, casual clothing, baseball caps, hoods and scarves are useful for concealing your identity if it kicks off. Shaven heads and really short hair are the order of the day too, you need to look the part, remember first impressions count, anyone who can see that you are dressed appropriately will not want to get too close to you.
2 Stand your ground, this is about territory, and you are either defending it or attacking it, remember these colours do not run, even though we are not actually wearing colours. Also keep encouraging others to stand and fight as much as possible, usually whist waving you arms around and urging everyone forward, especially in front of you. If you are advancing shout ‘come on’ if moving backward shout ‘stands your ground’.
3 Make yourself look big, wear a bulky coat and keep your arms spread out to the side, when wanting to appear especially aggressive and threatening spread them as wide as possible inviting the entire firm opposite to come and get some.
4 Keep moving, keep light on those feet, especially if missiles are being used, dance from foot to foot and periodically surge forward to threaten your opponents but remember to back off if you get too close or they get too close to you, this is not running, it is tactical manoeuvring. If you can do this in groups it is far more intimidating to those opposite especially when combined effectively with 3.
5 Make lots of noise, and I mean lots, hurl abuse and threats at the enemy, emasculate him, shout that he is a homo, a fag or a wanker this will undermine his sense of manhood so you are defeating him mentally, chant in unison to create more noise and undermine your enemies chanting, this is an age old tactic to put fear in their hearts and destroy their will to attack you as a group.
6 Be as aggressive as possible, remember be big, wave those arms, threaten, give them the two fingers, one finger or show your fists are ready to go, put on a kill face and snarl, you need to show that you are the meanest piece of work out there and are ready to rip their hearts out of their chest bare handed if necessary.
7 Get close to the enemy, but not too close. Just as Native American warriors were held in high esteem for touching an enemy with their lance in battle, getting really close up but not actually hitting is a really impressive tactic in confrontations.
8 Give the police time to arrive, this a very important one, if the rival firms do close then everyone knows it will get very nasty as they have to go hands on and no one wants to be in there if their firm, god forbid, cracks and runs, they know what happens if the script goes one. So if the above rules are followed by each firm then the game takes a ‘natural’ course, neither side loses face, a vital group and individual point, and once the police get there in sufficient numbers we can start again.
9 Repeat steps 2 to 7 but much more aggressively because now it is show time as each firm are being prevented from getting at one another they will increase the intensity of their efforts to demonstrate that as the song goes “if it wasn’t for the coppers you’d be dead” repeat.
10 Celebrate you victory over (insert name of rival firm). This is often done by chanting “Who are yer (you)?” repeatedly at your enemy whilst keeping steps 2 to 6 going, 7 not really possible due to the spoil sport police stopping all the fun. If you are a visiting fan you make as much noise as possible all the way to the ground whilst the police protect the many times more home fans from you. If you are a home fan you harry the visiting fans all the way to the ground whilst they are protected by the police. After the game, even during, it is a race to upload video onto social media websites so the world can see your power/disgrace, (delete as applicable) as soon as possible.

Garry here. When the instructions are clear but due to an argument emotions overule clear thought. Sometimes there is little room for error, as here. The predatory instincts of the tigers kicked in quickly. Cute to look at but deadly by design. Conflict mismanagement, like nature, is red in tooth and claw. ...

Social violence occurs in nature as well as among humans. How does this "street fight" differ from asocial violence? ...

This video of a vicious roadside brawl has gone viral on Chinese social media.

From CRGI Affiliate Tony Terranova

"Human beings are the most complex species on this planet. Our emotions are triggered in 120 milliseconds (0.001 of a second) and accompanied by a concoction of chemicals that can be either debilitating or exhilarating. No other brain in the animal kingdom is capable of generating the kind of intellect, rational thinking, higher consciousness and destructiveness than we can. We have 5 different brain wave frequencies (hz); Gamma, Theta, Alpha, Beta and Delta with each one having an unique effect on how we react to situations and cope with day to day joys and challenges.

We have more information in 1 gram of our DNA than there are on 600 billion CD’s and our brains are one of the most complex structures in the known universe. And yet very few of us take the time to research even the very basics of how we function at a cell or neurological level.

Having just some basic knowledge will serve you well at times when tough transitions in life are presented to us and we have no choice but to face them, get through them and then hopefully heal and move onto new things. Self-education leads to investment in the self which is greatest investment we could make, and it will lead to us been more in harmony with ourselves, our surroundings, Mother Nature and the animal kingdom….." - Tony Terranova

Garry here, my wife just returned from a wedding in India and brought me a copy of the Times of India newspaper. It is a very interesting read due to cultural and linguistic differences. This one made me chuckle though. Thinking outside the box? ...

Part of effective conflict management is dealing with boundary violations as they occur, and not waiting until you snap.
