Ground Self Defense: Rear Mount
Rear mount gives the fighter the dominant control of the fight.
From this position, it is very hard for the opponent to defend. The fighter places one arm under their opponent’s armpit and the other over their opposite shoulder. The fighter clasps their hands using the opposing thumb grip.
Fighter keeps head tucked to avoid head butts. Fighter wraps both their legs around their opponent, with their heels “hooked” inside their legs.
Important: Crossing feet in rear mount provides experienced opponents an opportunity for an ankle break.
