It's easy for us to sit back in the comfort of home and discuss what someone could have or should have done under whatever circumstance. But there are some good lessons learned in the video below. Notice that once the woman was kicked she lost her ability to really do much (the person who gets the first real injury wins). She also had the groin target and the ability to attack the ankle or knee with her body weight--if only she knew how. That is why we practice Injury Dynamics from various positions. We attack from the ground; on our knees; or feet. In the words of Chris Ranck-Buhr, "fight from where you find yourself." Work it out on the mats. Slow is smooth and smooth is fast.
