Heel To The Face

One more MMA story...

My sons and I also watched a match in which one competitor was lying on his back. The other fighter tried to jump in and deliver a Superman punch to the face. Bam! The guy on the ground kicked him right in the face with his heel! KO!

Here is the point. If someone is on the ground, you have to be very careful. Don't just jump in with a punch or a kick. If the grounded person is a grappling expert, he wants you to jump in. He is inviting you to attack. He is thinking "please attack me on the ground!"

In Karate, if the attacker is lying on his back on the ground, it is time to get away. You also have to watch out for his friends.
