A Viral Video Shows MMA Trainer Caught in Brawl at Kerobokan Traffic Light


A video circulating on social media has gained attention as it captured a heated altercation at the Kerobokan traffic light in Badung on the evening of 19th January 2024. The incident unfolded when two individuals on a motorbike displayed reckless behaviour on the road, engaging in verbal abuse directed at fellow drivers. 

Their behaviour took a more disturbing turn when, during a red light stop at the Kerobokan traffic light, they began using offensive words towards a Balinese woman, instructing her to move away from their motorcycle.

In response to this offensive behaviour, a man named Komang intervened, expressing his disapproval and urging the two individuals to show respect, particularly towards women. Instead of heeding the advice, the two men confronted Komang, leading to a physical altercation between the three individuals.

This incident, captured on a video and widely shared on social media platforms, has sparked discussions about road etiquette and the need for respectful behaviour among road users. It serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining civility and avoiding confrontations that can escalate into violence on public roads.

Komang, known as an MMA trainer in response to the offensive behaviour of two individuals on a motorbike, Komang took swift action. Initially, he delivered a series of kicks to one of the individuals, leaving them confused.

Shortly thereafter, Komang directed a powerful punch towards the second person, causing them to collapse. Onlookers, including passing motorbike riders, attempted to intervene and quell the escalating situation, especially given the traffic around the Kerobokan traffic light area.

Iptu I Ketut Sudana, Head of the Badung Police Public Relations Section, has confirmed the incident, emphasising that the video, which went viral on social media on Saturday, 20th January 2024, has sparked concerns among the public about the nature of Komang’s actions.

“We are presently in the process of identifying the perpetrator and examining the vehicle purportedly used by them, along with determining the victim’s whereabouts. We have received information suggesting that the perpetrator is employed at a martial arts gym near Canggu,” stated Sudana.
