Systematically controlling the mount

2h 26min  

The mount is an amazing position in both MMA and in a real fight situation if you take the time to get good at it.

In a fight or MMA situation, you can strike your opponent while preventing him from hitting you with any power. In kids' competition, this is the main dominant position because this positional control is drilled in kid's class.

Most adults are afraid to have someone explode out of this position
and prefer a much more limited side control. Becoming a master of this
position will open up striking options, more subs, and back takes as well
as making your opponent carry both your weight and his.
