View Full Version : Movement while on the ground vs. Groundwork movement
05-28-2009, 10:57 PM
Looking at my yellow belt curriculum I notice:
II. Movement, C. Movement while on the ground
XI. Groundwork, A. Movement.
What is the difference between these two?

I would like to help you, you sound a little stressed out about your test... Are you looking at a KMW student handbook?

I'm going through the curriculum sheet that my instructor gave me, similar to what's on this page:
I'm not too stressed though, just want to make sure I have it all down.

It looks like the same movement on the ground. It's just listed twice.
The movement is tracking your attacker while on your back or side, ready to kick hand(s) up.
Each school may have there own take on basic movement position and could have added more, such as when opponent has mount and is striking that you keep driving with your legs, hands up defending punches and keeping the opponent on your hips and not letting them get high mount.
Same could be done from side mount, etc. Those are usually not stressed in the test. The best is to ask your instructor, to make sure you are both on the same page.

No worries, I made it through the qualifier, looking forward to intermediate.
