Examples of ground fighting

Ground fighting is a universe apart from standing up fights. It is not as simple as throwing in some punches and kicks. A skilled ground fighter will be very hard to control once he is on top of you. Your options are much more limited than when you are on your feet. On the ground you cannot escape you cannot reach for common objects to use as weapons. The aggressor could also impede you from calling out to your friends. Unless you are a very experiences grappler or ground fighter avoid at all costs into going down. Especially if you are being attacked by a group.
