Combat experience shows that the majority of both civilian and law enforcement defensive encounters end up with one or both parties fighting from the ground. Acknowledging this fact, Active Response Training's president and primary instructor, Greg Ellifritz offers an innovative ground defense class in Virginia. This ground combative system will allow you to learn the skills necessary to defend yourself in the worst-case scenario when a violent criminal forces you to the ground. This is not a sport Jiu Jitsu or wrestling class. Students will learn simple, effective combat techniques that will allow them to overwhelm their adversaries and facilitate a rapid escape.
Topics covered include: ground defense positions, kicking and striking from the ground, empty hand lethal force techniques, escaping from the mount and guard positions, and choke defenses. Students will also learn how to deploy edged weapons from a grounded position and how to defend against both firearms and edged weapons on the ground.
