The ground and ground fighting have become one of the central components of any effective self defense system or complete martial art in the 21st century. With the advent of mixed martial arts, the glaring need for fluency with the ground is common knowledge, yet in most cases, sportive interpretations are just assumed to translate directly to the street. While there certainly is a high transferability of skill, many of the strategies and techniques are entirely inappropriate for contexts with multiple attackers or where weapons are present.
Secondly, most ground approaches today simply employ rote memorization and sequential memorization to transfer technique. Again, while there can be no substitute for repetition and drilling of specific technique and the inclusion of progressive stress for deliberate practice, there are a host of other factors that merit prioritization, including breath management, structure, biomechanics and transferrable principles.
