I’m fairly new to Iain’s theories and philosophies so forgive my ignorance in asking probably some basics questions.
There are 2 types of altercations. The first, when you’re attacked by a criminal, in which case you fight just enough to escape. The second is a mutual fight which also happens often, maybe not to the 40 or 50 year old student but more so to the 15-21 year old student.
In the first scenario, you somehow have fallen to the ground and the criminal is somehow on top. It doesn’t matter in what capacity; Straddling you in mount or some other entanglement and trying to punch you. When you “fight to regain your feet” or “fight to get back up” What is the standard way you accomplish that? Is there a standard…..”bunkai” you use that seems to work quite often?
I know how those BJJ people would do it. It seems they have an escape or reversal for every problem on the ground, but what methods do you use?
In scenario number two, the mutual fight….And we know that happens; if you’re both on the ground are you finishing that bully on the ground or are you fighting to get up.
