PINNAROO, Australia, Feb. 22 (UPI) -- An Australian man filming a group of kangaroos caught footage of three of the animals using their dance-like skills to stay standing in a knock-down brawl.

YouTube user Dan Wild posted a video to the site showing two kangaroos in Pinnaroo punching and kicking one another while using their tails and balance skills to keep from falling.

A third kangaroo soon gets involved and the fight turns into a free-for-all.

"We ended up with a clear winner, and stayed to watch a few more square up, but nothing came close to this scrap," Wild wrote of the incident. "The sounds of the impacts from the kicks were [phenomenal]; I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of those, and these roos stood taller than me (and I'm [6-feet-tall]) -- scary stuff!"
