STAY OFF THE GROUND AT ALL COSTS! Contrary to what wrestlers and jiu jitsu practitioners believe, the ground is a very bad place to be.How many people can you fight on the groundat once? Most people do not attack alone.
What if a weapon like a knife is brought out? Attempting to submit or pin a knife attacker is a recipe for disaster. If possible avoid the ground. If your attacker hits the ground you should leave the area as quickly as possible. Don’t attempt to take the fight to the ground.
