Fighting multiple opponents from the ground

Can you do it? Perhaps. But Scott Sonnon can! Watch:

All of our regular TDA readers know my personal position on going to the ground: avoid it unless it gives you the advantage. Most of the time, it doesn't - irregular, potentially hazardous surfaces, weapons, reduced mobility, and usually, multiple opponents make the ground somewhere to avoid. I posted this video just to show the possibilities.

Keep training!
