In the slightly shady alley suburb of New York City, Mr. Average Joe is walking, finished from his 1:00 am friend’s dorm.

Upon walking a few meters from dorm he saw two shadowy figures wielding a baseball bat and the other steel chain. The two blocked his path and demanded his grocer bag. Unbeknownst to the two hoodlums, Mr. Average Joe is a mix martial arts and aikido black belter. The 1st man, attacked him with a bat from behind, while the 2nd one, tried to choke him with a chain. Mr. Average Joe’s response is swift, and with a fast repeated punch, strike to his opponent’s chin, the 1st man was thrown into the ground and by employing a kickboxing style he inflected a burning pain thereby incapacitating his opponent. The fight is like between the star of the karate kid movie and his enemies.
