IMPORTANCE OF GRAPPLING IN STREET FIGHT APPLICATIONS
Rather than think about rolling on the floor we want to think more about our vertical grappling. This is especially important in low light conditions where you can't see - you can only interpret movement via your tactile sensitivity. In other words, you feel pressure and movement and respond accordingly. This is especially important when it come to the ripping and tearing motions.
So if you don’t grapple much in your curriculum consider adding some in. Use it as a warm up drill or even go slower to cool down. Look for opportunities where you could strike and just call them out. Say 'headbutt' if you could have struck your training partner with your head, or just give them a little bash to make them aware.
