Basic Jiu Jitsu Curriculum – Lesson 3b – Positional Control From The Mount 1

Mount Control Overview:

The mount is the most dominant position in a fight but it won't work if you can't stay there. As soon as you get the mount your opponent will do everything they can to get you off of them. You need to master the art of controlling and exhausting a bigger opponent from the mount. If you don't master these moves it is unlikely that you will ever be able to hold a larger, stronger down from the mount.
