question on street-grappling

Post  Disenchanted Westerner on Fri Oct 06, 2006 1:47 am

Dear John,

just a quick question: has someone ever tried to attack you with a grappling move in the street during a serious altercation? If yes, what was your (re)action? And generally speaking, how do you prefer to deal with such attacks?

many thanks,

Yes many times it is actually par for the course if a person has worked a number of years in a violent environment then they will have had to deal with a suprise attack or being grabbed from behind etc,they don't see coming. i can't remember someone trying out a deliberate grappling move they may have done but in the street it would be a ragged affair and probally not recognised most of my altercations remained at the standing grappling range or quickly finished. i have been to ground when i've slipped or ragged over in a meillee but generally i stood up. I'm not a beleiver in that most fights go to ground - some do most don't.
I remember being attacked one night whilst going into my office at a club i was working at this attack was a complete suprise i was prepared through training to deal with this attack i caught the man by the throat whilst standing beneath him on a staircase he dive into me and i spun him took him down the staircase and into the office pinning him on top of a row of chairs he quickly turned blue then purple his eyes became blkoodshot as i squeezed his throat tight shut. it ended there and he was carried from the club slightly unsure of hwere he'd been. The man was 6ft 4 and built like a brick outhouse.
Take care mate
