And hypothetically an Aikido practitioner will avoid the mount. Hypothetically.
richard, that's what my sempai would always tell me! they would always say things like 'don't go to the ground.' '...you should never go to the ground...' which became irritating, because they never did say what to do IF i ended up on the ground.
that's why i think its important to teach students at the very least how to escape the mount. 'just in case.'
better to know how to swim before you fall into the water.
