Here's my analysis of what I sawSome of those wrestling street fights demonstrate why knowledge of ground fighting is important.
The wrestler THROWS the first attacker on the ground. Then QUICKLY GETS BACK TO HIS FEET. He doesn't stay on the ground and wait for the other person so he can ground fight. The wrestler then TAKES DOWN the second attacker on the ground, punches him a few times then gets back up to his feet and Soccer kicks him. I don't know if he realized that the person running in was the lady or if he was preparing for a possible third attack but he did it by standing back up. He won the fight.
The guy wins by THROWING the person on the ground and he does so by remaining standing.
Not sure how this one ended, But THROWS the guy down 2 times and looked like he was going for a third. He had the dominant position, but the other guy is able to get to his feet which is the better place to be even though he got slammed twice. My guess is that every slam will be less powerful and it didn't look like that third throwing attempt would be more powerful than the first.
Guy wins by THROWING
Starts with THROWING the opponent to the ground then KEEPS THE FIGHT ON THE GROUND. Here knowing how to fight on the ground would be of big use.
Out of all of the clips including the ground fighting one. I would say the thing that was most dangerous is thing to watch out is the THROW. The best way to deal with that is train how to defend against the throw.
- 6 out of 6 videos show that the Throw was effective and was the first move taken, with the exception of the guy who fought 2 people at once. Where he used a single leg take down and then ended the fight with a soccer kick.
- 1 out of 6 videos actually show extensive ground fighting
- 5 out of 6 videos show people getting back to their feet or staying on their feet be it the wrestler or the non-wrestler.
