Re: 90% of all fights go to the ground..

Though there is a clear implication of the likelihood of going to the ground in the second survey...

Quote:
Respondents were asked whether an attacker had ever attempted to force them to the ground. More than half (52%) reported this had occurred. Of that number, 60% reported that their attackers had been successful in taking them down.
...the first study indicates that take-down attempts only constitute a minority of aggressive actions by suspects:

Quote:
Four combative actions by suspects accounted for almost two thirds (65.8%) of these I.O.D. injuries; the officer was kicked 23.4 percent, punched 16 percent, thrown/tripped 15 percent, or was bitten 11.4 percent... The thrown/tripped statistic includes injuries sustained from wrestling on the ground.
I actually find it interesting that kicks were the greatest cause of injuries.
