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:
- 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.
- 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.
