I'm just curious how many dojos train for defending yourself when you are on the ground. If you do, how often do you train.
I know in a perfect world you should never end up on the ground but I know I am not always perfect....my wife reminds me of that quite often.
Yoseikan Budo has Judo ne waza as an important part of the curriculum. I'd say we practice ne waza regularly, but not every training session. At 9th kyu, you need to be able to effectively pin a resisting uke with at least two common techniques.
