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 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!
The Guard Is the Key to Survival on the Ground
You’ve probably heard about Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and seen it in the UFC. This martial art is one of the most efficient and effective ways to control and defeat an opponent with grappling.
Now you don’t have to learn every aspect of Brazilian jiu-jitsu in order to survive on the ground.
After all, if you’re on top then you can simply stand up and disengage.
But what if you’re on the bottom?
The guard from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a position, along with a set of techniques, tools and tactics, that you use when you’re on your back and your opponent is above you.
It’s called “the guard” because it uses your legs to protect your head (unlike other positions on the ground where you are much more vulnerable).
The guard allows you to control the range between you and your opponent.
This isn’t as simple as just wildly kicking your opponent away with your legs. If you do that continuously you’re simultaneously going to get exhausted and give a semi-skilled opponent a TON of opportunities to pass your guard and putting you into real trouble!
Once you add controlling the grips to controlling the distance you then make it MUCH harder for your opponent to hurt you. He’ll find himself with his arms entangled and posture broken, unable to generate the power he needs to land a strong shot.
Not getting hurt is the most important thing of course, but what comes next?
If you know what to do then you can use the guard to get back to your feet, even if he’s driving all of his weight down into you…
Or you can break his arms, especially if he tries to punch or choke you…
Or you can choke him out and render him helpless…
Or you can sweep him so you end up on in a dominant position on top.
The guard is all about having options to choose from and to respond to your opponent with.
But Even Longtime BJJ Students May Not Use the Guard Correctly in a Real Fight
The core of BJJ is self defense.
That means knowing what to do when you’re flat on the ground with an attacker above you raining down punches
Now in sport jiu-jitsu the guard has evolved quite a bit away from its combative origins. In BJJ competitions it’s not unusual to see players flip upside down, lie with their legs dangling in the air, and fight for positions that might get their faces smashed in a real fight.
It’s not that the guard of sport jiu-jitsu is bad; it’s simply that it needs to be recalibrated so that you don’t make critical errors when using it in a real fight.
