Re: "Cheating" to survive a real fight

Yes but what I meant was that when facing multiple attacks why purposely go to the ground. Yes if they get you to the ground you may be better off knowing some BJJ but overall if more than one opponent gets you to the ground not much is going to help. Nothing against BJJ or any grappling art but I have never seen ground defense against multiple attacks. This may be simply my ignorance and if someone has an example of ground work against multiple attckers, I would love to see it. I have a great respect for grappling and think that it is an essential part to self defense but not the only part.

the edges of the sword are life and death
no one knows which is which
