  1. Thank you for watching our Atomic Blonde (2017) stairwell fight scene breakdown! Make sure to share with your friends and get them to subscribe so we can get 500k subscribers by the end of 2022! We know this fight was highly requested so we are so excited to have been able to finally break down this fight scene for you (and choke Logan out again). As always, thanks for the support and let us know which fight scene you'd like to see us breakdown next!

  2. If you’re up for a YouTube Short video then Batman vs The king of mutants would be pretty good. It’s not too long but has some good bjj.

  3. A video from Scenic Fights? About one of my favorite action scenes in years? ON MY BIRTHDAY????? Incredible.

    I wish I watched this when it went live, but I was celebrating with my homies

  4. For the last scene, the lever choke wasn't the best choice in that situation. As soon as Daniel got slammed into the wall he should have immediately went to a one arm choke. He would have still be able to choke her out while also being able to defend his face.

  5. Amazing breakdown as always, and I want to add more about the "reversal". There is this technique with a pretty fancy name, known as Retrograde Moon. It's a circular reversal technique, and it's "formless". Highly adaptable and changeable. For example, the enemy performs an number 3 slash in a reverse grip, using the opponent's momentum and gripping the bicep, then redirect the knife by holding on to the wrist and slamming into the opponent's face with the entire blade vertically.
    To put it simply, hold a knife in the reverse grip, then do "drinking water from the mug" motion and you will get what I mean.

  6. I think this is the awesomest (yes, I said awesomest) youtube channel. Great knowledge, explanations en humor. It looks like you guys are getting better at it with every video.

  7. As silly as I find this movie to be, still enjoyed y'alls breakdown. Thanks for another great video guys. Keep up the great work. Hope the gym's business has been good.

  8. Holy crap it's been a while, welcome back you guys!!!!!!!

    Now about how stuntmen go with just throwing themselves down the stairs. Can't remember if it was Scott Adkins or someone else that explained it. So how they do it is either the stuntman would put on pads or they would pad the whole flight of stairs, maybe even both at times. Still even with protection it takes balls to drop yourself down the straircase, so yeah props and big respect to all the stunt people that make our favourite action films even better with their work!

    Hmmmmm just realized you guys haven't done The Equaliser (starring Denzel Washington), the first one also made use of a corkscrew and multiple objects throughout the film as improvised weapons.

    As always you guys never disappoint, even after a pretty long break, you guys came back swinging or should I say atomic. Glad to see you're back and see you in the next one!

  9. That was a great video ! I can feel how edge weapons are very dangerous because the explanations are really precise and clear. Can't wait for the next video !

  10. I have a question and maybe a future episode idea. What is your choice for most realistic knife fight scenes? Also, break down?
