More from ^Professor Mo^ of 52 Blocks:

“We always teach that when you stay on the ground, you have to assume that your opponent has another person with him. That other person can be a wife who's about to stab you or a guy who's about to hit you with a chair. In ground fighting, we try to finish quick. Once we stabilize the person, we look around. We're always looking for who the next attacker might be. That's why a good 52 Blocks guy likes to 'play the wall.' When your back is against the wall, nobody can hit you from behind."
