End up on the ground, some obvious things about street combat, some obvious things about street combat!

Over 95 of street combat ends up on the ground, so ground combat skills are extremely important for self-defense.

Why am I telling you this?

The reason is that all personal defense systems tell you that you never have to end up on the ground but the reality is quite different as they demonstrate thousands of videos of street fights or workouts in the gym with full contact.

Even if they tell you no, you end up on the ground.

Phrases like you never have to end up on the ground don’t make much sense, it would be as if they told you never to take a punch, it’s an imaginative and uns real view of self-defense but in general combat.

It would be more correct to talk about strategy where you try to score your own and then trivializing it if you don’t want to end up on the ground you will try to put the game on that plane but being that you do not fight alone your attacker will try to make his game that can also be to grab you and you do not want to get caught because you can also end up on the ground Etc.

The only real situation where you never have to end up on the ground is when your opponents are multiple and that if you end up on the ground you have to consider the danger of a cutting weapon or similar being extracted from your pocket or other areas.

The ground is not the tatami

So clearly compared to sport, however, the fight on the ground must be adapted to the context No Rules and No Safety where by this I mean that the ground is hard and you can not know the area where you find yourself struggling, because if you discuss in the middle of tables full of glasses and bottles and end up on the ground in the middle of the glass it is not really the funniest and safest thing.

Ps. Remember that even a small sliver of glass if it goes into the circulatory system can create as dangerous damage as a cut even if it is a rarer thing.

Clearly in the case with multiple opponents your strategy must be very different and particular attention must be paid not only not to be encircled even never to end up on the ground for obvious reasons and if you end up there you have to get up as fast as possible.
