How to Stay Safe on the Ground When a Larger Opponent Is Trying to Punch Your Teeth Down Your Throat.
This new, step-by-step instructional, teaches you how to defend yourself and win when you’re on the bottom. Four hours of instruction in two volumes.
You Need to Know What to Do on the Bottom!
These days every wannabe tough guy watches the UFC. And that means that bad guys all know the power of tackling someone to the ground and then pounding that person into oblivion.
But it doesn’t even need to be that deliberate, because you can also end up under your attacker just by chance.
A clinch gone bad, a surprise bum rush, even a slip and fall… One second you’re up on your feet and then suddenly – BOOM – you’re flat on your back with punches raining down.
Of course it’s true that in a self defense situation you may not necessarily want to go to the ground. Staying off the ground allows you to punch, kick, elbow, knee, and – most importantly – run away. So definitely keep the fight on the feet if that’s where you feel comfortable.
But it’s really important to realise that you may not have a choice about staying on your feet. The ground happens and when it does, you need answers.
So even if your entire game is based around staying on your feet you still better have a plan if you end up on the ground. You absolutely need to know what to do when you’re on the ground with an attacker above you.
And that means having the techniques and the strategies to survive on the bottom.
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst!
