Do 90% of All Fights Really Go to the Ground?

I want to thank Josh Christopher (Kendamu) @ Sparking Turtle for posting this to Twitter:

Fighting Myths

The article exposes the myth of the often heard statistic "90% of all fights go to the ground".

Don't misunderstand the point of this article - it isn't saying that knowing how to fight from the ground is useless, just ground fighting isn't the end all, be all of martial arts training.

  1. Cool. I always thought the 90% thing was an invented statistic based on general observation - I didn't realise it was ever meant to have come from a credible source. And yet, turns out it basically is invented after all. =P
