In this video, Master Joe Fitzgerald of Tang So Do shows how he would defend against various takedown attacks. Tang So Do has some locks in their system, but the grappling and ground game is a different world. Since grappling is a big part of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Tang So Do is a stand up fighting system, and I was curious to see how it would deal with a grappler. Since Master Fitzgerald also came from a wrestling background, he is able to understand grappling and apply Tang So Do applications. From my experience, if you do not have any grappling experience, you have to rely on your footwork to keep away from a grappler utilizing hit and run tactics. But that’s usually easier said than done.
