UV5 – Groundwork – d1a) and d2a)

(The defender is on the attacker) d1a) – Learn how to be stable in the position, strike the attacker and get up safely

(The attacker is on the defender) d2a) – Cover the head (elbows locked in front, palms to back of head) and move and rotate against strikes from the attacker. Parry and strike or 360 and strike, then grab behind the head and pull in and control. From here bring the foot up that is on the same side as the arm controlling the head, and place it flat on the floor, then push and bridge. Roll with the attacker and get into guard position, strike and get up

OPTION (d2a): If the attacker is sitting very high, leaning back and striking in a way that they cannot easily be grabbed, strike into the back with the knee to make them fall forward – grab, control the head and carry on as before
