Securing The Armbar from Side Mount


For some, Side Mount isn’t so much a position to establish Submission Dominance.

Instead they tend to use it to control the position and posture of their opponent whilst they establish their ‘Ground and Pound’ game.

But what if your opponents ‘Ground and Pound’ defence is really good, what then? Do you just keep trying to hit him with little or no success? Or do you switch things up?

I’m my opinion, you switch things up. Keep him under pressure and constantly guessing about your next move.

Today we show you how to secure The Armbar from Side Mount. Having a skill/ technique such as this allows to to open up your game and not get stuck in ‘the box’.

This is one of those techniques that’s often not expected, especially if you’re opponent has an aggressive defence when he’s the one stuck on the bottom in Side Control.
