BAKM Grapple & Strike Seminar with Simon Staples


Within the context of self defence, staying safe on the ground is not too dissimilar to stand up scenarios, in that, we have to control the space, keep our dead side (back) protected and avoid dangerous kicks, strikes, grabs, grips, chokes and manipulations to our joints and other vulnerable areas, whilst always looking for an opportunity to escape. However, this is where the similarity ends, as dependent on the situation the ground will be your best friend or worse enemy, and being taken to the ground without any prior knowledge or skill, will make the ground your worse enemy, for sure.

Simon has been teaching and training in various martial arts for over 35 years with the last 15 years developing his own fighting system: KD Combat System, a fusion of Karate, Boxing, Wrestling, MMA and BJJ. He holds the rank of 6th Dan in Shotokan Karate.
