Ground Self-defense Drill

Update 7/18/19:  My club still uses the flag but we’re now called Cabal Fang Temple, and we’re a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational charity.  Visit our website or purchase our 12-week personal growth program at Smashwords, Amazon, B&N, or wherever fine e-books are sold.


Original post:

This is us drilling ground defense at The Order of Seven Hills.  In this drill, one man is the aggressor. The defender’s objective is to submit the aggressor or escape, while the aggressor’s job is to submit the defender or at least prevent escape.

Striking is at about 50% power, but wrestling is just shy of 100%.

Working on tarps over hard ground instead of on mats is miserable, but at least it keeps you from getting too comfy on the bottom (if you think mat burn sucks, try tarp burn).

Next time we’re going to do the same drill with weapons.
