Here is one way that you can get up off the ground and stand up in base in a safe and effective manner while protecting yourself from a threat.

The Proper Technique

  1. Start by sliding the heel of one foot underneath the other leg as close to the butt as possible.
  2. Slide the other leg as close to your body as possible.
  3. Place your palms on the floor

This creates a “hammock” like effect, thus allowing you to swing back into your basic fight stance while always keeping your eye on the threat.

Stabilize and get back into the basic fight stance.
