Default How many 85 year olds...

Let's assume the same general rules, minus the fight training. You would have to figure that most of the 85 year olds would have inferior speed and balance, which will certainly work to your advantage. Also, they will have less stamina than the 5 year olds, as well as a slower recovery time should they get knocked over by a non-knockout blow.

How many can you take? I'm still working on a number for myself.

I'm sure my foul language alone could kill several dozen.

Not if this guy was one of them. I'm thinking he would have kicked 90% of the asss on this site.

Depends on the venue. In an open field where I had room to maneuver, probably 200. In a racket ball court about 20.

You could probably take close to as many on the racket ball court as in the open field as long as they weren't allowed to have their dentures in. A couple dozen of them would probably go down by tripping over eachother and breaking a hip or just being unable to stand back up.

This is an interesting point. It may make it possible to take on more, since a more crowded room would increase the likelihood of the 85 year olds injuring themselves. If you could get them to trample/fall on a few on their own it would certainly help.

lol... I worked in a drugstore when I was in high school, and these old men would come in and buy like 4 Mr. Goodbars and nothing else, I always assumed that once you're 80 your body can exist on nothing but bad candy, is that the secret to old man strength?!?
