In a street defense scenario, the ground is a dangerous place to be. While it's a good idea to actively learn defensive stratergies for ground fighting, it is important to put those skills into the context of how you want to use them. This instructional book/DVD combo offers a complete guide to ground fighting principles and techniques to use when the fight goes to the ground. It establishes the risks and hazards of various ground defense scenarios, presenting effective stratergies for neutralising and minimising them. All techniques are easy to learn and apply, providing an adaptable skill set for anyone regardless of size, strength or gender.
This excellent book by IAIMA Honorary Fellow Lori O'Connell is surely one of the best around. Not only is it an excellent self defence book, it is the book often used by Instructors as a reference for their groundwork syllabus, and referred to when preparing their lessons.
If you are a stand up martial artist who wants an insight into groundwork for self defence, this is the book to get!
