How To Maintain The Mount Position

Hot to maintain mount position in BJJ

BJJ Universe’s associate and black belt of 11 years under Team Alliance Academy in Maryland, USA, Mike Vicioustacion shows us in this 4-minute long video how to maintain the mount position properly.

Mike’s top two tips for maintaining the mount position:

  1. Keep the control that you had when you first found yourself in the mount position. It may have been a cross face, a collar grip, control over their arm, etc.
  2. Use the control to attack, whether that be a submission or advancing to the back. If you do these two things consistently, you’ll find yourself in a dominant position for longer, and probably finishing more exchanges with a submission.
