Ground Survival: Caught Between a Rock and a Hard Place

How to Survive on the Ground

There are a lot of myths about being on the ground
in fight or a self-defense situation.  I think that maybe why most people find the thought of defending themselves on the ground to be very scary.  A.C.T will give you tools, the realistic practice, and the confidence so that if needed, you can defend yourself on the ground and win.

Myth 1: Most fights go to the ground.

There are many so-called experts in fighting that say that most fights go to the ground.  This is a myth. It is very hard to take someone to the ground who doesn’t want to be there, even if the attacker knows what they are doing is a difficult thing to accomplish.  

 Myth 2: You actually want to fight on the ground.

Fighting on the ground willingly is a very bad thing to do.  In the real world, the ground is covered with concrete, asphalt, rocks, sticks and various other items that make it very difficult and painful to move and work while on your back.  The other thing to consider in a real-world scenario is the possibility of multiple attackers.  The attack may not start out with multiples but could easily escalate to many attackers.  If you fight on the ground, you limit your ability to defend yourself against more than one person at a time.  You limit your ability to escape and run away, and you can also get injured more easily because of the lack of mobility.

So, we don’t want to end up on the ground, but things happen. You may be attacked while lying down, say in your bed, in the park, on the beach.  Or you may fall down or be taken down (very hard to do).  That is why we teach ground survival. Our goal is to put you in a better position to hit vital spots and get up as quickly as possible.  This is not an MMA or Brazilian jujitsu class – this is the real world and the self-defense skills we teach really work and have worked for ordinary people.

Is Martial Arts for You?2019-06-24T14:28:52+00:00

I think so, everyone can benefit from either jiujitsu or karate training or even both.  The problem for most adults is when they think of martial arts training they think of MMA type training or what is showing on TV, they may also think of kids classes and what they have experienced as a child or see their kids do.  They associate these pictures with martial arts training for themselves as adults.  At Total Ryu we are not like that at all, our adult classes are different from our kids’ classes, and we are not a sport or an MMA school.

You should also understand that Real fighting is not just done on the ground.

Many people will want you to believe that the ground is where you want to go.  NO NO NO, never if you can help it.  The real world is full of concrete, asphalt, rocks, obstacles, etc.  Not to mention that the most dangerous fights have more than one attacker.  If you go to the ground, the other guy or guys are going to be doing things to you that you don’t want them to.  However, you do need to know what to do on the ground, but in a method that gets you on your feet while taking out the bad guy as quickly as possible.  That method of thought is precisely our philosophy on ground fighting at Total Ryu.

What is Training at Total Ryu Martial Arts LIKE?2019-06-24T14:32:32+00:00

Training at Total Ryu is incredible.  We teach and train in a relaxed fun and informative environment.  You will learn at your own pace, and the black belt team and I will do everything that we can to help you learn the techniques and principles and advance to higher levels of understanding and capability.  During class, you will get a workout, but it will feel much different than a traditional workout because you will be learning and practicing useful information and participating in functional fitness.

The people that come to Total Ryu are top notch, fantastic people whom I consider to be part of my extended family and close personal friends.  We all care about each other and each others success, not only in the dojo but in life.  We have helped each other out in many ways outside of the dojo.   We have also helped people find success in areas of their life that they wanted to improve.  We care about each other, come in and try a class and see what we are all about.  Why not, it’s free to try.  I know you will like it.

Safe Environment

Will you get injured, probably not, while I can’t guarantee it, we do our best to keep everyone safe.   We teach everyone how to do the techniques and applications safely.  Learning safety in practicing martial arts is part of everyone’s progression.  Our desire is for everyone that comes into the dojo to have a fun, positive learning experience and that means we will do our best to keep all of our students free from injury.

I Don’t Know Anything, Will I Feel Out of Place?2019-06-24T14:34:02+00:00

You have to remember that no one starts training in Total Ryu Martial arts or any jujitsu or karate system as an expert.  Everyone starts as a beginner, what sets us apart is that we want you to succeed, so you have lots of friends who want to help you achieve and learn.  It is quite amazing.  As a beginner, we start you off easy.  You will learn the basics and gradually as you improve, learn more advanced techniques.  All the time being tutored by black belts and more advanced students.  We want you to succeed so we will do what is needed to help you achieve that goal.
