It seems very easy for a martial art master to make someone fall on the ground or throw someone on the ground. When you try it, it seems way harder than it looks. So what's the secret that a martial art master can easily throw someone on the ground.
The secret is body balance. It is difficult to move you somewhere as long as you have your balance. When you stand in a fighting stance, you stand in a certain way and you are ready to fight.
There are some variations of fighting stance in different martial arts. In some martial arts, you put more weight on your rear leg, it is like 30/70. Their front leg is always ready to kick and strike. In some fighting stances, they keep equal weight on both legs, so it is 50/50.
The main thing is, you have to keep your body balance in a fight. Whether you fight in a fighting competition or fight for self-defense, this is a crucial factor. If you lose your body balance, the attacker is in power. He can easily control you, move you away, or throw you on the ground.
It is easy for a martial art master to throw you on the ground because you can do something to make you lose your balance. And the next thing you know, you are on the ground and probably get injured. The master can strike you or kick you, the intention is not to hit but make you lose your body balance. That's why it seems very easy for a martial art master to do that.
What if someone grabs you or drags you?
Most probably you lose your balance, otherwise, it would be difficult for him to drag you. You cannot make any move effectively in that position. In order to defend yourself, you have to regain your body balance first and then you can do whatever you want to do.
