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
- Start by sliding the heel of one foot underneath the other leg as close to the butt as possible.
- Slide the other leg as close to your body as possible.
- 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.
