If you land on bottom....
Well, I figured since I had another thread on this about being on top I'd ask what most people feel about being on the bottom.
Consider the situation as being a challenge match where someone comes in and fights you in your own school. Then consider another as being a plain street fight between you and someone you dont like or know (with no fear of others jumping in).
IF you land on the bottom and have guard control, which do you prefer?
1: Try to escape back to my feet, I dont like fighting on the ground
2: Play a defensive game by trying to hold him close- only go for something if it seems its easy to get- I dont like fighting off my back, but I've got to do something
3: Play an offensive game and attack with submission and sweep attempts because you dont mind being on your back at all
4: HOLD until hes too tired to do anything and then try to escape.
I'd consider myself taking option #3- Im a tall guy with a skinny build, so I've kinda accepted the fact that I have to fight from my back in a fight more often than most other people. Guard is also by far my best position, so I'll fight anyone from there.
