@MattChan I read it as unscripted violence faced by civilians, i.e. the fights one might find oneself in.

@RobinAshe Good point; I should've been more specific. Statistics on the frequency of the fight going to the ground in MMA aren't very useful with regards to real-life scenarios for a number of reasons. As you note, the mechanisms one can see in MMA are absolutely golden and should be taken to heart.

Though honestly it blows my mind that the Marines teach the armbar from mount in that document. In my mind it's one of the worst options in the contexts Marines would likely be in, with the goals they would likely have.

Nice answer; that might be the source I was thinking of...

Great question. This claim is originally based on specific people (the Gracies) citing specific studies (by the LAPD as I recall). I have notes/links on my other computer and will see what I can put together later. There's a broader claim, separate from that specific one, but that would be harder to prove. (This is one area where using MMA results would, in my mind, be misguided.)

Good point, I had totally forgotten my favorite counter to that technique! That's what I get for not going to judo for a month.

@Patricia That was my thinking as well. Can't tell if it's taniotoshi or kosotogake with the current description. Honestly I suspected osotogari despite the left/right description.

@RobinAshe I see your point, but in my meager experience, kosotogake without double underhooks relies on dramatically superior wrestling skills in general. (Specifically, exploiting bad footwork or using double overhooks to crushing their underhooks.) Would you agree?

I'm still not sure I'm clear on what's going on. Are they close, or grabbing the gi sleeve? Does the thrower stay standing or end up somewhere on the ground, and if so, where?

You could probably get some mileage out of examining the question from the opposite side: how does one maintain mount?
