True if I can hit then they can too but this is Jeet Kune Do. Way of the INTERCEPTING Fist. I know my fighting range and when you are in it I will hit. Many so called martial artists are not aware of their fightING range just method. THEY ARE ALSO VERY TELEGRAPHIC AND NIT ECONOMICAL IN KICKING OR STRIKING.
When people don't have the advantage, they often "cheat" with dirty tactics, bring weapons into play, or bring friends to the party. ANOTHER REASON NOT TO GO TO THE GROUND. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A FAIR FIGHT IN REALITY. THE ONLY RULE IS SURVIVE.
>> If they are close enough to grab then either I did something wrong or I had better had let them get that close.
I spoke to an older, well-seasoned kung fu instructor last year and the topic of ground-fighting came up. He had a similar opinion: "If I have let my opponent take me to the ground, then I have lost the fight."
And he was seriously okay with that. He had built a self-image as a stand-up fighter, and literally viewed getting knocked down as the same thing as getting knocked out. I can't relate, but I see more and more that this idea is shared by many people.
One caveat, just as it's possible to pound a screw in with a hammer, it is also possible to use stand-up tactics to defeat a determined grappler. There are some amazing fighters out there -- Sifu Davis being an obvious example -- who's experience and training will likely trump any style of attack. I TRAIN WITH SIFU LAMAR. BEFORE I HAD TKD AND WRESTLING BUT SINCE BEING IN HARDCORE JKD FOR 6-7 YEARS NOW MY THINKING HAS CHANGED. WHY GO TO THE GROUND WHEN I CAN SEND YOU THERE.
