Many intermediate students say that they are more comfortable and stable from side control than from the Top Mount position. However, once you learn how to control the position the Mount is a very dangerous submission position for your opponent. Prof. Victor will show us some techniques for capitalizing on the Mount.
To start the video, Prof. Victor has achieved the Top Mount but the opponent is tightly defending and not making any mistakes offering an easy submission. Prof. Victor must find a way to break down the opponent's defense in order to get a submission.
This technique is all about Prof. Victor using his superior leverage from Top Mount to use his bodyweight to walk the oponent's arm up and away from the defensive position near his side. Even though the opponent knows it's coming, he can not stop Prof. Victor's superior leverage.
