This instructional Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu book & DVD combo offers a complete guide to ground fighting principles and techniques to use when the fight goes to the ground.

In a street defense scenario, the ground is a dangerous place to be. While it's a good idea to learn defensive strategies for ground fighting actively, it is important to put those skills into the context of how you want to use them. Whether you're an experienced submission-grappling competitor, a traditional martial artist training in a stand-up striking style, or law enforcement professional, Ground Defense provides you with an essential system of self-protection for street-oriented ground scenarios.

When the Fight Goes to the Ground establishes the risks and hazards of various ground defense scenarios, presenting effective strategies for neutralizing and minimizing them. You will learn a wide range of tools for defense, including the targeting of vital areas, body shifting/control techniques, and the concept of weapons of opportunity. All of these techniques are easy to learn and apply, providing an adaptable skill set for anyone, regardless of size, strength or gender. These tools are then shown in various combinations, with examples of how to use them against specific types of attacks, including simple hold-downs, ground and pound, submission grappling pins, chokes, arm locks, leg locks, knife attacks and multiple assailant scenarios.

In addition, this martial arts book gives you useful training suggestions and regimens, addressing graduated skill development, challenges presented by different body types, and safety practices at all levels of training.

This book presents a practical and realistic approach to ground defense
By: Bob Patterson

First and foremost a big tip of the hat to Ms. O'Connell and Tuttle Publishing for creating a well-written and well-photographed book. I have written book reviews in an academic setting, and, on occasion, I've had to review books that are not as functional as this book. This, however, was not the case and what you will find in this book is clearly written and clearly illustrated. This book presents a practical and realistic approach to ground defense.— Bob Patterson, Author of Striking Thoughts martial arts blog
