Grappling in that context includes ogoshi-ing suspects to the ground, wristlocking a shiv out of a convict's hand, and Kimura-ing perps, armbarring convicts, and scrambling to stand up from an unexpected or unsprawled tackle.

Also, make sure you understand the definition of grappling. As 1point2 did in his overly complicated way, grappling includes many control tactics, holds, chokes, taking subjects to the ground etc.
Remember grappling isn't just armbars and triangles on the ground. In other words, grappling=/=BJJ/Sambo/Wrestling exclusively.
